NAMeS™

(Native American Technologies Measuring System) is a weld cross-section measurement software system used for measuring a variety of typical weld cross-sections. NAMeS™ software allows quick and accurate measurement of engineering dimensions. This software also gives rapid accurate descriptions of weld dimensions and allows the user to:
  • Quickly characterize weld cross-sections with a completely mouse driven interface.
  • Easily add or remove samples from the list of welds to characterize.
  • Save and load information on characterized welds.
  • Zoom in on key features for more accuracy when measuring.
  • Display chosen weld dimensions while characterizing the weld.
  • Use a video capture board and camera to capture images of specimens directly into NAMeS for characterization.
  • Perform image manipulations such as rotation and mirroring.
  • Quickly alter model options such as line color and point shape to provide maximum contrast with the actual weld image.
  • The new GenDimms™ template can be used to measure almost anything. Simply place the scaling feature on a scale in the picture, and then add lines, wedges and splines to measure lengths, angles, area and perimeters.
  • NAMeS™ can print out simple weld reports showing the weld picture, any comments, and a list of the selected dimensions (out of specification dimensions appear in red).
  • Eliminate film costs by capturing images digitally and storing images on your hard drive or on CD.
  • NAMeS™ runs on Windows 95/98 computers that meet these requirements.


Frame NAMeS™ is a custom program addition that helps organize welds for measuring and reporting. Each "frame" corresponds to a part or assembly to be inspected. Frame NAMeS™ includes the following enhancements:
  • Each weld on the frame can be given a customized part name and description.
  • The following data can be used to identify the "frame": assembly model number, date/time manufactured, date/time inspected, production line, and technician ID. All production reports contain this information.
  • Each frame can be customized with a view of the part from the customer's drawings. This view will show which parts have been measured, and can show the parts general location on the assembly.
  • Set upper and lower specifications for dimensions on each weld.
  • Instant notification of out-of-specification welds. (It is no longer be required to go to Excel™ to determine if a weld is within the programmed specifications.)
  • Production reports and SPC reports are avaliable in an Excel™ spreadsheet.
  • All measured weld dimensions not within the defined spec limits are highlighted in the production report.
  • Comments entered in NAMeS™ transfer to the production report.
  • Frame NAMeS™ includes a database used to store the production information and weld measurement data. This database can be queried and searched for particular production items and reports are generated from the data.
