New 3D Inspection Software for Intuitive Contact and Noncontact Measurement

Published: Thursday, May 21, 2015 - 09:07

(Creaform: Lévis, Quebec, Canada) -- AMETEK Creaform has introduced VXinspect, a powerful and intuitive 3D inspection software platform that includes all the tools for first-article inspection (FAI) and quality control. VXinspect provides simple integration for contact (probing) and noncontact (scanning) measurement in numerous manufacturing applications. The dimensional inspection software is designed to be used in combination with the company’s HandyPROBE, MetraSCAN 3D, and HandySCAN 3D portable measurement devices.

The software features all the functionalities required to set up a high-efficiency measurement sequence to inspect multiple parts. Its intuitive interface assures efficient inspection workflow with no compromise in measurement quality or geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) requirements.

VXinspectVXinspect supports rapid part-to-CAD inspections for pre-production adjustments and production part approval to control critical part dimensions. It is fully integrated in VXelements, Creaform’s 3D software platform and application suites.

New workstation and robust stand

Creaform also has released two products to enhance performance and reliability of its dimensional inspection solutions on the shop floor:

• The Creaform Shop-Floor Workstation is a dedicated work and secure storage unit offering increased mobility with on-the-go access to 3D scanning, probing, and photogrammetry systems.
• The C-Track Shop-Floor Stand facilitates the mobility of the C-Track dual-camera sensors around the part to be inspected.
