With ZEISS CALYPSO, you will measure standard geometries easily, quickly and reliably. A single click on the required characteristics is all that is needed for programming. Thanks to numerous optional extensions, the software also offers the right tools for special requirements. ZEISS offers around 40 additional ZEISS CALYPSO software options for special applications and measurement tasks. You can purchase these in addition to the ZEISS CALYPSO universal measurement software to adapt the software to your individual measurement requirements.
With ZEISS CALYPSO planner, you have the ability to creating complete CNC measurement plans on a computer station remote from the machine.
Your advantage: Your measuring machine can continue to be used for measuring parts. The software saves the finished measuring plans, after which can be called up and executed at any time with ZEISS CALYPSO. The measuring throughput is thus retained.
The option enables measurements and analysis of 2D curves (intersection on one plane), 3D curves (intersection on one cylinder), lift curves, known and unknown contours and open and closed curves. Numerous curve-related characteristics can also be reported, including curve slope, curve stroke, curve distance, curve expansion, curve length, surface area, speed and acceleration.
ZEISS CALYPSO calculates the distance between measurement points and the CAD surface and displays the results graphically on the CAD model. Furthermore, results can be used to show the differences between the nominal and actual surfaces. The 2021 version of ZEISS CALYPSO has an improved mathematical algorithm for even better performance. The measurement results are now available 20 times faster than before.
ZEISS CALYPSO PCM (parameter-coded measurement) is ideal for manufacturers that produce parts similar in shape, function, and production process, but only differ by a few dimensions. Without PCM, the usual time consuming approach is to make a measurement plan for each individual workpiece in a family. Furthermore, if the measurement plan changes, possibly hundreds of measurement plans need to be manually edited. PCM solves this problem by creating one master measurement plan for all parts in the part family.
The software option improves scanning operations of VAST series tactile measurement machines by improving accuracy and significantly reduces the measurement time of circular paths (circles, cylinders, cones, etc.)
Software option that dynamically reduces the need to measure characteristics that are well within process control, based on rules from MES/CAQ solutions, for example ZEISS PiWeb.
The software option reduces the number of sensor and stylus-system changes during a pallet measurement. Time savings of 20 – 30 % are possible.
The software option allows measurement programs to be imported or exported to DMIS or ZEISS CALYPSO and converted into measurement plans.
Software option allows DMIS measurement programs to be imported or exported to ZEISS CALYPSO. Exporting measurement results to DMIS standards is also possible.
The software option provides an external application of ZEISS CALYPSO PiWeb reporting with many additional functionalities and enlarged database for optimized report generation.
The software option allows ZEISS CALYPSO measurement results to be exported for the statistics program QDAS.
With this software option, ZEISS measuring devices can be easily integrated into partially or fully automated production processes.
The software option allows routine measurement applications to be incorporated into automated processes and is ideal for regular measurement of random samples.
The software option eliminates the need to manually select the measurement plan and enter protocol parameters of a part to be inspected.
Software option for determining and graphically displaying roughness parameters as a function of selected parameters.
The software option for reading out and evaluating CT volume data created exclusively with the ZEISS METROTOM coordinate measuring machine.
Software option for standardized measurement of tool holding fixtures and bushings with Polygonal Taper Interface (PTI).
Software option for measuring and evaluating tubes, wires, articulated arms and hoses.
Software base for CAD-supported measurements and evaluations using manual devices.
These software options enable ZEISS CALYPSO to import or export of a wide variety of CAD formats to create an excellent user experience. The software supports the import of PMI to simplify the programming workflow. Thus, the software can create measuring programs semi-automatically.
