Smart Manufacturing Experience 2018: InspectionXpert Corp.’s inspection software is designed for ease of use to help precision manufacturers digitalize their inspection processes. 

InspectionXpert Corp., a subscription software company, offers inspection software designed for ease of use to help precision manufacturers digitalize their inspection processes. Among other things, the company offers software to help machine shops go paperless, converting inspection plans, reports and data to electronic formats.

The software enables inspectors to electronically balloon PDF and CAD drawings while simultaneously extracting characteristic dimensions and tolerances to create inspection reports. These reports can then be sent to the shop floor, where operators can capture inspection data from a web-enabled device. By capturing inspection results at the source of production, quality teams can create non-conformance reports and gain insights into sources of waste. The inspection data is located in a single database, so users can produce process capability reports and inspection results to share with customers.

  • How Accurate Is Your Machining Center?

    Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

  • Working With Your Working Gage Blocks

    The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.
