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.

  • 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.

  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • Surface Finish: A Machinist's Tool. A Design Necessity.

    Simple "roughness" measurements remain useful in the increasingly stringent world of surface finish specifications. Here's a look at why surface measurement is important and how to use sophisticated portable gages to perform inspections on the shop floor.
