InspectionXpert Offers Software to Use for Free Through June 1 in Response to Coronavirus
InspectionXpert has announced it will extend free trials of its inspection planning and reporting software through June 1, 2020, in response to the exigencies of the coronavirus pandemic. InspectionXpert is used to balloon part drawings, create inspection reports, and import CMM data for first article inspection reports, PPAP dimensional results reports and custom inspection reports.
“We are in an unprecedented time in all of our lives, and it is imperative that we support each other in any way possible. We would like to do our part to help the many job shops that may be struggling at this moment.” says Brandon Chaney, general manager.
The policy entails the following:
- InspectionXpert will be available for free to anyone who needs it through June 1, no strings attached.
- For InspectionXpert customers, there will be no limits on the number of users, and all customers will have access to advanced features through June 1.
The company will host free webinars daily with product experts who will answer questions and partner with users to get solutions implemented quickly.
Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.
A laser scanning system helps this shop capture the free-form surfaces on a hand-sculpted original. The resulting digitized models are the basis for CAM applications such as programming a CNC machining center.
Different instruments (and different operators) are prone to different errors.
