what’s new

Imaging software WITec Suite software is now available for all WITec imaging systems. It was developed to acquire and process large data volumes of large-area, high-resolution measurements and 3D imaging while providing speed, performance and usability. Through the software architecture and graphical user interface, an integrated and consolidated functionality is available incorporating the various techniques

The software design provides clear and intuitive menu guidance and an individually adjustable user interface suitable for all experience levels and user requirements. The smart access options for all principle functions accelerate the workflow and smooth the first steps into the software and an accessible learning curve. The suite includes Control FOUR, a powerful software tool for measurement control and data acquisition, and Project FOUR, a user-friendly data evaluation and processing software. The licence terms facilitate the installation of Project FOUR on an unlimited number of computers, permitting the user to process data and generate images wherever required. Alphatech Systems |
