QUINDOS is the ideal software for coordinate measuring machines, gear inspection centers and all applications.
QUINDOS is the most powerful analysis tool for many types of coordinate measuring devices and differing applications, mainly in power plant, automotive, aircraft and machine tool powertrain industries. The database structure contains all of the measurement data, making it available for further processing and reporting. A host of very special functions improves the efficiency of measuring process.
The QUINDOS Basic license includes all of the functions necessary to measure standard parts such as crankcases, gearboxes, etc. It goes without saying that all of the form and position evaluations, freely-programmable plot routines, generation of moving path information and more are all included in the basic license.
QUINDOS 7 features a CAD core, which allows displaying, zooming, moving and rotating parts in 3D. This function is not only available for existing CAD models, but also for measuring points and result elements in the traditional learn mode. QUINDOS provides interfacing with CATIA, Unigraphic (UG) and Pro/Engineer (Pro/E).
Part programming based on CAD data files. Import and export of 3D Models in IGES, STEP and BREP format, for standard geometrical features. 3D-visualisation with zoom, panning and rotation. Generate probing points on geometrical features.
Generate auxiliary lines (intersections with plane, cylinder, surface or border-offset lines) for the generation of nominal points e.g. for scanning and actual/nominal comparison. Interactive graphic evaluation (actual/nominal comparison) of 2D curves.and 3D surfaces.
QUINDOS features simple and fast gear measurements. Backed by adequate QUINDOS options, the operative range of a Coordinate Measuring Machine is expanded to a full value gear measuring machine. You only need to enter some specific parameters to measure gears. All travel paths, probing points and scanning lines are created automatically. Different from traditional gear measuring machines a rotary table can be used but is not required on your CMM for gear measurements with QUINDOS. This allows cost efficient gear measurements on pallets, with the benefit of a high throughput.

QUINDOS Gear Cutting Tools
QUINDOS offers all functionalities for the measurement of gear cutting tools. Measuring gear cutting tools is useful only with high precision measuring machines due to the high precision requirements. You simply need to enter the specific parameters for your measurement.

QUINDOS Reshaper
The QUINDOS Reshaper option is a universal software package for different applications. It has been developed to process and analyse point clouds generated by the CMS laser sensor on a 3D coordinate measuring machine at high speeds, by the portable ROMER Absolute Arm or other measurement devices. Also datasets from a CT scanner (computer tomography scanner) can be processed. With QUINDOS Reshaper users reach their goal efficiently - independent of hardware availability or time constraints.
The surface of the component that has been captured in point cloud format is converted into a digital workpiece with the 3DReshaper software. This produces a very accurate image of the actual part. Measuring points are selected for import by marking the points on the digital component. 3DReshaper supplies the true actual points. QUINDOS Reshaper then processes the measuring points in the same way as measuring points supplied by a connected CMM. Thus, users can measure and analyse their parts offline with QUINDOS Reshaper. All of the analysis options supported by QUINDOS are available to users. Existing measurement programs can be executed on the virtual component. QUINDOS Reshaper even enables set points to be generated on a CAD model loaded in QUINDOS. 3DReshaper finds and returns the corresponding actual points on the generated model.
