A VISION-BASED SOFTWARE PRODUCT WHICH CONNECTS INSPECTION DATA WITH A "VIRTUAL TWIN"
Inspect Tracker is an integrated, vision-based system to automatically record and map defects during part inspection using a simple, handheld pointer. Voice commands are used to identify defect type, which is translated to a completely digital record of inspection data.
Support for Industry 4.0 with digitization of data for manufacturers was the impetus behind the development of Inspect Tracker. In particular, the requirements for detailed inspection procedures for complex part surfaces, currently hand inspected in florescent penetrate inspection, or FPI booths was an opportunity for digitization that Inspect Tracker was designed for.
Features include Statistical part analysis, Defects reporting, Part inspection time, Cost to repair, User statistics, Defect analysis & failure mode frequency with heat mapping, Part analysis and Traceability.
