Radix has released its InspectTracker vision inspection technology. The software enables users to digitize the inspection process for complex part surfaces.

Almost hands-free, the software identifies defects and maps the complex part surface as the operator moves from defect to defect with the stylus. It uses voice commands to identify defect type, which is translated to a completely digital record of inspection data. Vision algorithms precisely locate data points, mapping them on a virtual part model. The application is designed for ease and speed of use, allowing the inspector to focus on the quality assessment.

Features include statistical part analysis and defect reporting. It shows part inspection time, cost to repair, user statistics and failure mode frequency with heat mapping, part analysis and traceability.

  • 3D Scanning: Reproducing One-Of-A-Kind Prototypes

    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. 

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    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.
