Save time and improve accuracy by generating in-process inspection instructions and documentation from VERICUT’s simulated in-process machined features!
Like most quality manufacturing companies, in order to maintain accuracy and stay within tolerances, you likely inspect your parts at various times during the machining process. And you likely create inspection instructions to document the results. There are many ways to create a series of inspection instructions. But, in the absence of an electronic “in-process” model of the part, they are manual methods that require a certain degree of technical expertise. These time-consuming methods are performed with limited knowledge of the state of the in-process material and are therefore prone to error.
Now there is a better way! VERICUT can automatically create inspection instructions, complete with in-process feature dimensions!
This helps establish a formal, but simple and efficient method to create and document inspection procedures.
The inspection report is highly customizable using a simple template (examples are included). Creating the inspection sequence instructions is quick and easy because you use the in-process, “as-machined” model to graphically describe which features to inspect. To add inspection points just click on a cut feature. VERICUT identifies the feature, automatically extracts feature sizes from the electronic in-process model, and applies a standard tolerance for the measurement! You can then add any additional instructions and select the measuring instrument from a list. When the inspection sequence is completed, an inspection report can be saved in standard HTML or PDF format for easy printing or sharing via email.
