Verisurf Software Inc. a leading supplier of advanced 3D measurement solutions to manufacturers, worldwide, celebrates 20 years of metrology software development.
In 1993 VERISURF was developed to meet the needs of aerospace wind tunnel model makers requiring VERIfication of SURFace profiles. The company pioneered the automation of advanced surface analysis capable of comparing 3D coordinate measuring machine data to 3D CAD models.
“When Verisurf first got started we used to probe single points and compare them one at a time, but now we scan millions of points and analyze them in seconds. It is hard to imagine any company still doing profile inspection the old way, but some still do,” says Ernie Husted, president and CEO, Verisurf.
Driven by customer need and innovative thinking Verisurf has introduced many firsts to the industry, including: the first PC based advanced surface analysis software, the first metrology software to support all digital measuring devices, the first metrology software with real time live-build function to guide virtual assembly and tool building, the first metrology software with mobile remote display for large volume laser tracker measurements, the first metrology software to implement Model Based Definition for inspection and the first metrology software to automatically align metrology devices to CAD models.
The Verisurf reputation as an Enterprise Metrology Platform was earned through its commitment to interoperability with all brands of metrology hardware and compatibility with all CAD software. The company has grown into a leading provider of the most comprehensive metrology solutions available for manufacturing, including surface analysis, inspection, assembly guidance, and reverse engineering.
“Our experienced metrology experts’ help customers implement solutions to increase their productivity, reduce costs, and improve quality”, says Husted.
Consistent growth has enabled the company to add employees and expand into new corporate headquarters in 2012. The new facility houses software development, technical support, application engineering, sales, marketing, and distribution warehouse. It also features a comprehensive metrology training center with class rooms and extensive laboratory space for developing and teaching large volume measurement processes.
