Axel Surface is a universal 3D inspection and analysis software.

Axel supports hybrid measuring instruments working with contact touch trigger and scanning probes, vision probes and scanning probes.
Axel CNC supports automated inspection devices such as CNC Contact and Video CMMs as well as portable inspections devices including manual CMMs.

Complete Inspection

Powerful inspection solution with extensive data handling, PTB certified mathematical algorithms and quality reporting.
Intelligent Constructions

Construction results are automatically found based on the types of its features. For example there is only one intersection which can be applied to any types of features.

Alignments methods

Construct your alignment from features, surface points, or edge points. Best fit measured surfaces to its nominal CAD models. Optimise it using weights and axial constraints.

Automation tools

Use Go mode to automate inspection workflow. Guided lines to simply locate measured features and increase repeatibility during batch inspection.
Surface Inspection

Surface characteristics of a free standing part are inspected by applying surface point and edge point program features.

Statistical Process Control

Assess the repeatability and predictability of your manufacturing processes with multipiece statistics automatically calculated for object dimensions and surface deviations.

CNC CMM Solution

Quick and easy programming for measurement sequences. Simulate measurement sequences offline.
Integrated Measuring Platform

Axel software follows the same measuring process for both portable measuring devices as well as CNC CMM metrology.

Automatic collision avoidance

Collision detection warns user about possible collision during the move before the move starts. During CNC programming with CAD model, Axel employs multiple collision avoidance strategies to move between measured features.


Variety of reporting is provided. Graphical boxes or dimensions shown in the Measure Window, user defined graphical report, HTML and Excel reporting with user defined templates.

With plentiful measurement engine and mathematical algorithms certified by PTB, Axel Surface is meant to allow users to extract meaningful information from 3D data.

CAD data import and export

Interfaces to various CAD formats are provided. They include DXF, IGES, CATIA v4, v5, v6, ProE/Creo Parametric 3D, STEP, VDA. UG NX, SOLIDWORKS, SolidEdge.

Hardware connectivity

Interface with portable probing devices and point cloud scanning devices. Operates major brands of manual and automatic coordinate measuring machines both contact and video.
