Metrology Software Carl Zeiss Integrates Kineo CAM’s Technology

Kineo CAM today announced that Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology, a leading manufacturer of multidimensional metrology solutions, has integrated its software libraries into CALIGO software.

CALIGO is the new measuring software specially developed for car body parts and freeform surfaces. Its modular system architecture offers a high degree of flexibility for the requirements of the future. The combination of Carl Zeiss tools with KineoWorks™ automatic path planning technology and KCD™ collision detector allows for collision-free trajectory creation, significantly reducing the time required for the user to define a safe and quick path.

A global agreement for Kineo Collision Detector and Path Planning technology

Kineo CAM has granted a worldwide commercial licence to Carl Zeiss Industrielle Messtechnik GmbH which belongs to the Industrial Metrology Group of the Carl Zeiss Group who has now integrated Kineo CAM’s path planning technology into the simulation module of CALIGO.

This integration with CALIGO will set a new dimension of productivity and usability of CMM software capabilities. Extensive simulation functionality to easily optimize programs using tools such as collision control, travel path track and collision ball is one the major capabilities of CALIGO.

“This agreement with Carl Zeiss makes us proud and enthusiastic” said Laurent Maniscalco, CEO of Kineo CAM. “Proud to provide a brand such as Carl Zeiss with our software component and enthusiastic to see it’s a good complementarity with commercial 3D solvers when fast collision detections are required by the end-user application. This opens a new market window and we expect to continuously improve our software technology with Carl Zeiss.”
