Geometric Error Compensation (GEC)
GEC involves the compensation of inherent geometric and thermal errors of CMMs. To actively maintain CMM accuracy, GEC adds dynamic temperature monitoring and compensation into the Pantec controller. For convenience and ease of use, the entire compensation procedure is done through the Pantec Support Tool tuning and analysis software. The GEC Wizard incorporates the calibration laser and the machine type to add optimum flexibility in error capture, correction, and validation of results. An efficient design with minimal clicks offers a high level of operational convenience, while ensuring that the 21 or 23 parametrized compensation values cover virtually all possible scenarios. Understanding the importance of this feature, Pantec has chosen to include and standardize the GEC software package as an added-value benefit of the EAGLE™ controller.
