SpatialAnalyzer is the leading software solution for portable metrology in demanding application fields.
Get there faster with SpatialAnalyzer: A hardware-independent, traceable 3D graphical software platform developed by engineers with practical metrology experience. It has numerous unique and cleverly designed features for precise measurement, detailed alignment, inspection, analysis, and reporting.
The software thus facilitates the implementation of challenging tasks – even for large-volume applications.
SpatialAnalyzer (SA) is available in three main configurations.
- Choose the solution that suits your needs and goals.
- All versions are available as USB and cloud licenses.
- VMT is an official reseller since 2006 with local support.
SA Professional – SA Pro
The basic package: SA Professional combines the basic industrial measurement tools under one intuitive interface. In addition, included are key features such as inspection, geometry checking, form and position checking, interfaces to more than 100 instruments, and a native CAD direct import.
SA Ultimate – SA UL
The powerful, all-inclusive package: SA Ultimate offers, in addition to all the features of SA Professional, further innovative features such as the powerful USMN (Unified Spatial Metrology Network), the unique Relationship Fitting and the possibility of measurement automation by means of measurement plans (MPs) and an SDK.
SA Analysis – SA ANA
The perfect package for the pre- and post-processing of measurements: SA Analysis contains the full range of functions of SA Ultimate and only excludes interfaces to instruments.
Features & Benefits
SpatialAnalyzer is a digital toolbox that provides a variety of practical tools. Therefore, users are optimally equipped for any measurement task.
Available in SA Professional
Measurements with added value
SpatialAnalyzer logs all relevant parameters and user actions of the measurement and evaluation process such as measurement data, time stamps, weather data, instrument info and more.
The result is 100% traceability.
Flexible alignment options
In addition to Relationship Alignment and Geometry Fitting, exclusively available in SA for virtual assembly are alignments such as Best Fit, 3-2-1, Quick Align against CAD or RPS and sequential alignments are supported, among others.
Use SpatialAnalyzer to simulate measurements in a simple way. For example, when measuring ray path analyses, include uncertainties under the consideration of instrument parameters. Here, the a priori uncertainty model is used as the basis.
Rapid quality assessment
Using the intuitive ribbon bar layout, display form errors of components and geometries graphically and numerically, allowing for the possibility to estimate product quality quickly and reliably.
Convenient GD&T testing
CAD data with drawing entries of form and position tolerances of component geometries can be easily imported, annotated, and checked with real-time reporting according to applicable GD&T standards.
Customised inspection plans
Using Geometry Inspection, define design-based inspection sequences based on a nominal CAD model or existing drawings.
Comprehensive CAD import
In addition to standard exchange formats such as STEP, IGES and STL, SpatialAnalyzer naturally also supports a variety of native CAD formats such as CATIA, Pro/Engineer, SolidWorks, Unigraphics and Inventor.
The integrated CAD Validation Tool generates detailed reports on the conformity and interoperability of CAD models.
SpatialAnalyzer offers fast and meaningful reporting using drag and drop, such geometry data, GD&T annotations and SPC features, directly from the tree view into the report. A variety of export formats such as Excel, HTML or PDF are also available. Quick reports, AVI video files and individually designed reports are also possible.
Elegant point-cloud handling
With new functionality around Scan Stripe Clouds, Crossections, Feature Extractions, and Voxel Displays, scanning projects are easier to execute and evaluate.
Keep a complete overview with APP
View measurement data in real time and control laser trackers remotely using the free SA Remote App for mobile devices.
Available with SA Ultimate
Unique Relationship-Fitting is based on the optimisation optimal minimisation of multiple relationships, an adjustment with constraints, and uses dynamic relationships between components or individual geometries to reliably assemble of even the most complex components. When objects in SpatialAnalyzer change their orientation, the dynamic objects are updated automatically and deviations are recalculated.
Real time alignment
With Transformation Tracking, you monitor the 6DoF values of a moving component in real time as it is placed in its assembly position.
Precise handling of pipes
Pipe Fitting optimises assembly of pipes through precise measurement and cutting, thus reducing costs for refinishing and material loss.
Smart instrument networks
Unified Spatial Metrology Network (USMN) brings together all in-use metrology instruments and combines their instrument uncertainties in a bundle adjustment for highly precise position determinations.
In doing so, the integrated optimisation algorithms calculate a posteriori uncertainties of individual instrument types used as well as for adjusted point coordinates in the instrument networks.
Automation of measurement processes
Using measurement plans (MPs), create individual processes with flexible scripts. These processes automate your repeating measurement routines, improve workflows, minimise errors and increase productivity.
Using the SA SDK, access the program libraries from any development environment, such as C#, integrating SA functionalities and instrument interfaces into a custom GUI.
Unlimited instrument support
Using the Multiple Portable Metrology Instruments module, SpatialAnalyzer can simultaneously communicate with virtually any number and type of portable metrology instruments. Each instrument type has a uniform interface layout and is therefore independent of the respective instrument manufacturer.
By means of the open interface SA Pipeline even self-developed instruments can be integrated.
Maintenance & Support
With new SpatialAnalyzer licenses, users receive the first year of maintenance including updates and support free of charge, making it possible to get started immediately.
To ensure support, users you will find maintenance contracts with fixed terms at attractive conditions in the VMT service offering without an additional subscription.
Customers benefit from a maintenance extension in several ways. Regular updates regarding newly available interfaces, and compatibility with instrument firmware and the Windows operating system is also guaranteed. More advantages can be found here:
The VMT maintenance contract includes support from in-house SA experts via phone, email, and web meetings.
Additional benefits and services: As an official reseller, we offer our customers many extras, including newsletters, extensive training offers, and free participation in events, such as the user meeting Project Dialogue SpatialAnalyzer, and the international trade fair for quality assurance CONTROL.
