QC-CALC GageStation

QC-CALC Gage-Station Software

GageStation is a combination license of both QC-CALC Real-Time and QC-GAGE. This combination license creates 1 data collection station for use with hand tools and manual data entry.

QC-Gage is a full-featured data collection application for use with hand-held gages. The software allows inspectors to enter measurement data by keyboard or through a direct connection to one or more gages. It displays this data both graphically and in table form, and automatically interfaces with QC-CALC Real-Time. By using GageStation, you can identify and isolate out-of-conformance parts.

Key Benefits

  • Easy Single-button launch
  • Interface with all electronic gages, RS-232 or USB
  • Your choice of Gage Interface Boxes
  • Keyboard entry for mechanical gages

How it Works...

QC-Gage simulates the inspection technique of an automated inspection device such as a CMM. You program QC-Gage through a simple wizard by answering questions that describe the sequence your inspectors must follow. These "Spec Plans" are saved and run by your inspectors, leading them in a consistent sequence of inspection. When all data and trace information (serial number, lots, names, etc) is entered, it is sent to QC-CALC where the Real-Time statistics are performed.

The Spec Plan

Each Spec Plan you create is a complete definition of the part to be inspected and the process used to inspect the part. You can create as many Spec Plans as needed to support the variety of parts you inspect. When writing a new Spec Plan, you define each feature in detail. When the Spec Plan is run, QC-Gage displays the instructions given for each feature along with an optional picture, The data is plotted in a graph, which is scaled based on the given Nominals and Tolerances.

QC-Gage provides the tools and flexibility you need to easily manage data for virtually any type of part. Using the setup wizard, you quickly construct a specification plan (Spec Plan) that includes a part diagram, customized instructions, and your own trace field details.

QC-CALC Enterprise Data Loader Software

QC-CALC EDL - Enterprise Data Loader

If you would like to have your data saved in an SQL database for advanced reporting purposes, you will need QC-CALC's Enterprise Data Loader, or EDL.

The Enterprise Data Loader (EDL) typically resides on a central server at each plant and is responsible for synchronizing data from QC-CALC with data in a SQL database. EDL is actually two applications; the EDL Client and EDL Load Service. The EDL Client is a normal Windows application that provides a fast and easy way of setting up the loading events for the EDL Load Service. The EDL Load Service moves your CMM and gage inspection results directly into the SQL database at the scheduled frequency.

QC-CALC Enterprise Report Scheduler Software

QC-CALC ERS - Enterprise Report Scheduler

The reports generated by ERS are designed to provide a rolled-up overview of the quality conditions within your plant or across plants. Rather than simply reporting on one part, you run reports that compare the capability of all features across all parts, cells, or even plants.

To run ERS, you would need Enterprise Data Loader, or EDL, to gather the data that has been collected from your CMMs, Vision Systems, and Gage Stations, and transfer that data to a central SQL database. ERS then generates automated reports that provide an overall view of your factory's performance.
