About TouchDMIS

Metrology Power with Simplicity

TouchDMIS combines the power required for advanced users with the simplicity needed for new users, making measurement capability easily accessible from the CAD room to the production floor.

TouchDMIS, in its 3rd iteration of CMM software, has taken on the mission of creating a user interface that intuitively leads the user through the basic measurement process.

Software that Simplifies Your CMM

The intuitive interface of TouchDMIS has been ergonomically designed to provide maximum productivity for both novice and expert CMM users.  TouchDMIS has no drop-down menus or stacked toolbars with all functionality accessed with just a touch of your finger.




Maximize Your Productivity

TouchDMIS requires just a few hours of training and offers an incredibly short learning curve. The software can be operated entirely via touchscreen, using intuitive touch, swipe and gesture commands.

Intelligent Work Flow

Import CAD

STEP and IGES file formats are supported as standard and native geometry within TouchDMIS. All major CAD systems can also be imported, as an option.

Define Alignment

The full range of coordinate system alignment options is available, including RPS and traditional 3-2-1 alignments.

Program Measurement Plan

The part program is displayed as colored icon program blocks. Each block is defined by a Feature Icon, Action Icon, Feature Label and Statement.

Perform Measurement

Launch the measurement process and follow it on the graphical display. Feature status is indicated immediately. For toleranced features, TouchDMIS displays actual vs. tolerance results.

Create Reports

TouchDMIS offers a choice of Inspection Reports for real-time reporting. XML, Excel, TXT and PDF exportable output provides flexible reporting.

Supported Hardware

TouchDMIS supports many different hardware platforms and use cases.  From Laser Trackers to fully automatic Coordinate Measurement Machines, TouchDMIS can be your cross platform solution for measurement and reporting.

Fully Supports PH20

TouchDMIS supports the Renishaw PH20  5-axis touch trigger system.

The PH20 combines infinite positioning capability with a full range of TP20 probe modules and extensions to:

  • Reduce program cycle time
  • Increase feature access
  • Reduce the number of stylus changes needed
  • Increase CMM volume by reducing space required for head rotations

Analog Scanning

TouchDMIS supports Analog Scanning using the SP25 or SP80 using UCC Server on Renishaw controllers equipped with scanning capability.

TouchDMIS supports scanning on CAD Slices, plus known and unknown curves.

Probe Manager

The highly intuitive, easy to use “Touch Probe Manager” brings configuration and calibration of your probing to the tips of your fingers.

Touch DMIS supports:

  • *SP25
  • *SP80
  • *PH20
  • TP20
  • TP200
