Various functions for editing measurement programs are integrated in the WinWerth® measurement software. After modifying the position, measurement window size, or light settings, the element can immediately be measured automatically. This way, the adaptions can be tested quickly without running the entire measurement program. With offline measurement of individual elements, parts of subroutines, or loops, it is possible to create and link nominal elements before the first part is manufactured. These functions are also available for parameter programs that contain DMIS commands such as JUMPTO, IF/THEN, ONERROR and many more. Such parameter programs can be used to measure families of work pieces automatically after entering only a few parameters. The programs may be created by the user with the power DMIS programming language, or provided by Werth as a turnkey solution.
