ZEISS Integration Series

Operating

The operating products from ZEISS Integration Series allow you to integrate your quality assurance and its data where it is needed, without any detours. Measuring close to production allows for quick quality statements and direct countermeasures. The quality assurance system is adapted to the production environment and the measurement data is recorded centrally. This makes it possible to regulate adverse conditions such as temperature fluctuations or to integrate manual measurement results into automated processes.

GageStation

With ZEISS PiWeb, the GageStation combines measurement data from handheld measuring devices with CMM measurement data and visualizes them in a comprehensible manner via touch screens and measurement report templates. The GageStation requires little space and offers protection from environmental influences in the production environment that can falsify measurement results.

Consolidation of all quality data in one report

  • Data acquisition independent of measuring equipment
  • Centralized data handling
  • Protection against environmental influences

Compatible with ZEISS DuraMax and ZEISS Optical Series.

ThermoStation

The ThermoStation shields measurement processes from very high temperature fluctuations and harsh conditions in the production environment. CMMs such as ZEISS CONTURA can be used where they are needed - and are guaranteed to deliver accurate measurement results.

Tightly enclosed housing to protect the CMM from environmental influences

  • Small footprint compared to conventional measuring rooms
  • Installation directly where quality assurance is to take place
  • Integrated pallet feeding system for ergonomic loading

Compatible with ZEISS CONTURA

ZEISS Integration Series

Automating

The software solutions of the ZEISS Integration Series enable the hassle-free automation of CMMs and peripherals, as well as the control of fully automated cells or the starting of complex individual measurements. The intuitive interfaces ensure that all applications can be used even by untrained operators.

Automation Interface

The ZEISS Automation Interface allows you to easily automate your measuring device without any engineering effort. In addition to starting inspection plans and providing feedback on measurement results or machine status, the application allows you to control CMM peripherals. The interface is also preconfigured for all products in the ZEISS Integration Series. For example, the control of automatic fixtures or the pallet feed can be configured effortlessly with just a few clicks. Individual fixtures developed by you can also be controlled via configuration.

Easy automation of the CMM periphery

  • Standardized communication interfaces: OPC UA, Profinet, EthernetIP
  • User administration allows plant operators, measuring technicians, setters or service to see exactly what they need
  • Can be used in both automatic and manual mode even by untrained operators
  • Simple configuration by click and directly via the user interface, without complex PLC programming
  • Efficient commissioning with low project risks and low costs
