How It Works

Whether you’re performing basic inspections or requiring more complex measurements, all the tools are available in Metron RMS Software.

Import CAD

Import the CAD file and use it as the benchmark for comparing manufactured parts.

Scan, Measure, and Inspect

Start right away with Quick Inspect. Gocator scans the manufactured part. Metron RMS then measures, compares, and verifies the part against the CAD at production speed. Metron RMS allows you to set more complex measurements for advanced inspection (optional).

Control and Reporting

Metron RMS works seamlessly with your systems to execute controlled decisions (sorting, pass/fail, alerts) or consolidate data for reporting patterns and trends.

Have More Control Over Your Inspection Process

If you are looking for greater control and customization, Metron RMS software harnesses the power of CAD to provide additional features such as rapid GD&T, datum-based alignment, and advanced measurements.

Metron RMS can perform the following measurements, and more:

  • Circles
  • Cylinders
  • Planes
  • Angles
  • Distance
  • Parallel/Concentricity

Why Is It Better to Inspect with CAD?

High repeatability and accuracy
  • High Repeatability and Accuracy

    Part to CAD inspection provides the highest degree of quality assurance and achieve accuracy at a submicron level.

  • In-Depth Analysis

    When the good is scanned and then superimposed onto the CAD model in real-time during production, it can detect deviations across all areas of the product.

  • Inspect Complex Geometries

    Ability to inspect goods with complex shapes or geometries that may be challenging to measure accurately using other methods.

  • Efficiency

    Evaluate 100% of the products right when the products are manufactured, rather than taking extra step of inspecting them after production.

What Can You Do With Metron RMS?

Metron RMS enhances the Gocator 3D smart sensor with additional capabilities to take automated in-line inspection to the next level.

Part to CAD Inspection with Gocators

For the first time, Metron RMS introduces groundbreaking CAD-based inspection with Gocator 3D smart sensors, enabling rapid comparison of scan data to CAD models for superior quality control.

Use DxF File for 3D Inspection

Metron RMS auto-converts DxF files for use in automated inline inspection.

Global Defect Detection

This capability automatically recognizes a pattern in defects, provides alerts, or initiates controlled decisions.

Compatibility with Gocator 3D Smart Sensors

Metron RMS is compatible with the following Gocators for automated inline inspection.
Runs out of the box. Simple to set up to get the job done.
