Verisurf Software and InspectionXpert are partnering to provide integrated InspectionXpert and Verisurf functionality designed to accelerate the process of completing first article inspections, the companies said.
"InspectionXpert's automated ballooning and inspection reporting combined with the powerful inspection automation capabilities in Verisurf makes creating first articles and other inspection reports even faster for quality inspectors," said Jeff Cope, president and CTO of InspectionXpert. "Our integration addresses critical bottlenecks in quality inspection so manufacturers can increase throughput in their delivery of products to their customers."
The InspectionXpert product line includes integration with CAD programs including Solid Edge, CATIA, SolidWorks and Pro/ENGINEER, and versions that work with any PDF and TIFF files. The Verisurf product line includes the ability to import 3D CAD models and standard 3D formats such as IGES and STEP, create and edit model associated GD&T, and perform inspection directly to the 3D model.
"Verisurf's connection to popular coordinate measuring machines (CMM) and real time comparison to 3D CAD models combined with InspectionXpert's drawing ballooning and AS9102 and PPAP reporting will automate both 2D drawing based and 3D model based inspection processes," said Ernie Husted, president and CEO of Verisurf. "This partnership and integration is the best in 2D and 3D inspection and will save manufacturers significant time and money producing first article inspection reports."
