MeasurLink 8

Most of Mitutoyo's electronic instruments can output data via optional connecting cables or wireless transmitters & receivers in the form of the Digimatic code. The Digimatic code can also be converted in RS-232C format by any of several available gage multiplexers. In this way, digital data can be sent to PCs for data acquisition and advanced statistical analysis.

As a client/server application, MeasurLink gives you the performance you need through distributed processing. Combined with a multi-user relational database, MeasurLink delivers a safe and organized data warehousing system making quality data available for viewing and analysis by any member of the production, engineering and managerial staff throughout your company. Inspection in the factory produces data for analysis, corrective action, and various reporting needs. As the backbone of your quality efforts, MeasurLink is guaranteed to reduce your production costs and increase your buttom line.

MeasurLink is capable of linking and managing multiple "islands" of inspection into a common database of part information, statistical data, gage information, process, etc. Information is shared across an entire manufacturing facility.
