Inspect is a standalone application that helps production-level CMM operators execute PC-DMIS measurement routines using a standard, simple graphical interface. In the latest release (5.0), INSPECT now accepts barcodes from any windows barcode or QR code scanner, to help streamline workflow.

Inspect is the evolution of the popular Single Touch Interface+ (STI+), with an elegant interface and a modern platform that offers much more adaptability and easier access to platform improvements and feature updates. STI+ was designed to be simple to configure from the administrator level and even simpler to use from the operator level. It allowed users to choose a routine from a list and run even the most complex PC-DMIS inspections without ever having to launch PC-DMIS. Inspect brings this same workflow into a modern scalable platform with added features and benefits based on user feedback and surveys from the PC-DMIS user forum.

Inspect 5.0 works with any Windows compatible barcode or QR code scanner to automatically load and run measurement routines and playlists or filter to find reports. This not only speeds up the workflow but also reduces operator error caused by manual input.

The latest version of Inspect has a new capability called ‘Dimension Sets’. This allows PC-DMIS mini-routines and marked sets to be available for selection from within Inspect (a capability that was widely requested by customers on ‘Idea Centre’). Selecting Dimension Sets can speed up the measurement process by allowing a subset of critical features/dimensions to be measured.

Inspect is free to download with PC-DMIS PRO, CAD and CAD++ however Pallet and Playlists are cost options and require a separate licence.

  • Features & Benefits
    It’s Free
    INSPECT software is free for new and existing users of PC-DMIS 2017 R1 and up. It is included with the PC-DMIS installer so there’s nothing more to getting started other than launching the software and following the easy-to-customise interface.

    It’s Easy
    INSPECT is a deliberately easy-to-use inspection tool. It has only three functions: Measure, Report, and an optional Slideshow. Simply point the Measure tab to the PC-DMIS Measurement Routine folder (wherever PC-DMIS programs are located) and the Report tab to wherever PC-DMIS Inspection Reports are stored, and you’re set.

    It’s Scalable
    INSPECT is as simple as you want and as involved as you need it to be. With the optional Slideshow tab, you can create real-time graphical reporting to help operators immediately realise and resolve manufacturing defects as well as reduce cycle rework times. 

    It Works
    INSPECT offers a modern Single Touch Interface for Shop-Floor CMMs for anyone needing to protect measurement routine integrity while simplifying access and execution.
