Tool Tracker was developed to address a need for error-proofing and complete traceability in manual fastening processes.
Validated as "production ready" by Ford Motor Company, ToolTracker has provided cost savings, improved error-proofing and complete traceability and assembly verification since 2008.
ToolTracker combines machine vision and sophisticated software to track targets in real time. The ToolTracker target can be mounted on any hand tool, assembly equipment or parts pallet.
The simple to navigate user interface is part of a well crafted software application that is easy to install, calibrate and set up. It can provide data for integration into an external application or be used on a stand alone basis.
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.
