Industry 4.0 Quality Control Platform Combines CAD Data With Measurement Data

Today’s production processes are ever more time sensitive on delivery, require significant flexibility for last minute changes, and at the same time are seeing ever increasing demands on quality control and process interaction from stake holders that are on site or remote – and all in real time. BoldInspect is a web-based software platform designed for quality control in manufacturing. It provides access to CAD data in the browser, allowing anyone in the factory to view and analyse product parts during R&D, pre-series and series manufacturing.

BoldInspect combines CAD data with measurement data produced by devices ranging from high-precision laser scanners to digital callipers, providing users with a comprehensive view of their manufacturing processes, easily viewable on the go via Apple iPad Pro. Actual parts can be viewed with a blended view of CAD models and measurement data due to LiDAR-powered Apple iPad Pro tablets.

BoldInspect is highly customizable, with custom integrations and features that can be tailored to specific manufacturing processes. This flexibility allows users to optimize their quality control efforts and improve efficiency throughout their operations in real time, reducing waste and increasing profitability.

Improve Quality Control: Clear insight into 3D measurement data, not constrained by paper printouts, with viewing from any angle, zoom level and detail – including real-time scaling of tolerance heat maps.

Increase Manufacturing Flexibility: By giving workers on-line access to CAD drawings, parts catalogues and measurement data, everyone can work with up-to-date data.

Transform Manufacturing Workflows With Digitalization: Eliminates printing and distributing drawings, integrates with specific instruments and devices and fits within your manufacturing process.

Reduce Pre-Series Costs: Faster turnaround times from measuring to making changes when preparing the series manufacturing process.

Protect Intellectual Property: Prevents circulating sensitive CAD models to non-R&D personnel, and reduces the level of detail downloaded to end-user devices to ensure further IP protection.

ŠKODA AUTO uses the software under their “e-Protokol” brand to digitize pre-series manufacturing of their vehicles. They use high precision laser scanners to capture the exact shape of physical parts, while BoldInspect provides visualizations of any deviations from CAD models using easy-to-understand heatmaps viewable on an iPad Pro. Users can collaborate on the same data and use the Augmented Reality view when working with prototypes, for presentations tracking progress and decision making.
