IBR ComGage Software
ComGage is a software for metrology and statistical process control on manufacturing sites. The software is suitable for simple displaying of measured values up to complex measuring applications with control sequences, as well as for testing of components with several characteristics in small and large series. Additionally the software provides information for statistical process control by means of the statistical functions included.
- Simple and easy handling – Low cost and modular
- Universally usable for simple hand gauge stations, multi gauging fix- tures and automatic measuring sequences
- Data collection from gauges, interfaces and by keyboard
- Universal mixing of measuring inputs as well as measuring programmes for run-out, roundness, flatness, coaxiality, …
- Graphical surface for creating the display windows
- Simple measuring sequence control – Online SPC – elements
- Control of digital outputs and reading of digital inputs
- Collection of reference information
- Printing of test reports and measured values in table form
- Converter for MS-Excel and QS-Stat – For Windows 95…Win 7 and CE – European and Asiatic languages

ComGage is a software for the metrology and statistical process control
in the production.
The software is suitable for simple displaying of measured values up to complex
measuring applications with control sequences, as well as for the test of components
with several characteristics in small and large series. With statistical functions the
software delivers additional information for the control of production processes.
ComGage Compact a simple and universal pro-
gramme for fast solving of measuring
A easily surveyed and user-friendly surface allows
a fast settling in the software.
Basic functions for control tasks and for collec-
ting reference information make the usage of
the programme for nearly all measuring applica-
ComGage a complete solution for the field of
metrology and SPC in the production.
Extended functions for collecting reference infor-
mation, the order dependent saving of values, a
formula editor for complex control tasks and an user
setup make the universal usage possible. Additional
functions i.e. printing of barcodes, correction data
transfer to CNC-machines can be individually added
Software Modules of ComGage
The software package ComGage is splitted in modules.
This allows the cost-optimized usage of the software in
different areas in the company.
For the supervisor office only the modules for creation of
test schemes / test orders and for the production only
the modules for data collection and analysis are needed.
IBR_TSH ( Test Scheme Handler ) [ F711 010 ] :
The module IBR_TSH allows the creation of test schemes.
( Programming of characteristics, measuring sequence,
digital inputs and outputs, design of display windows )
IBR_TOH ( Test Order Handler ) [ F712 010 ] :
The module IBR_TOH allows the creation of test orders.
With test orders collected measurement values can be
afterwards printed, converted into different data formats
or can be analysed in ComGage.
IBR_WGL ( Window Gauge Library ) [ F713 010 ] :
The module IBR_WGL allows the data collection, cal-
culation and visualisation of measured values.
Additional the module assumes the storaging of values,
the automatic zero adjustment & calibration, the
sequence control and switching over between test orders.
IBR_SPC ( Statistical Process Control ) [ F714 010 ] :
The module IBR_SPC provides statistical displays and
calculation methods for process analysis and process
control. ( Histograms, run charts, statistical data ( like
Cp, Cpk ) and Shewart / Acceptance control charts )
IBR_PLC ( Programmable Logical Control ) [ F715 010 ] :
The module IBR_PLC serves to observe and control
digital inputs and outputs. It saves the usage of an
external PLC and allows the automatic control of
fixtures and machines.
