Increasing the efficiency of your manufacturing processes with automation
Our team of experienced developers and metrology experts can deliver software customized for your specific needs. We provide personalized interfaces that simplify use and reduce the need for direct intervention from a metrologist. We will analyze your requirements and implement solutions that will increase production and ensure process repeatability to help you attain your organizational goals.
Custom interface and process development
In order to ramp up production, your complex metrology process needs to be repeatable and easily learned. A custom interface that only shows the relevant commands, and an automated process that prompts the user step-by-step, help ensure that your metrology requirements are fulfilled quickly and easily. In addition to the process automation features included in BuildIT, we can also develop and create custom automated inspection interfaces for your measurement process.
BuildIT’s team creates customized automation interfaces designed to handle your specific metrology needs. As a separate application, Automated Inspection uses the BuildIT engine for metrology and geometry computation. It is a simplified user interface for the metrology process, and is targeted to users who are not metrology experts, but operators. The Automated Inspection process is self-contained and applies automatic error checking and validation in order to provide a robust and resilient shop-floor solution.
This will reduce your man-hours and allow you to simplify the execution of your process, providing advanced results. Once your inspection process starts, it will follow through until a report is generated and the information is downloaded into your quality management database. BuildIT gives real-time, color-coded offsets that are very useful for assembly and reports.
In one click, you can activate multiple functions and automatically give feedback to your manufacturing software which will be displayed directly in your interface. This translates to:
- Increased production and ensured repeatability of your process by encapsulating it in your customized user interface;
- Simplified inspections and accelerated training. Hiding the complexity of the metrology software allows an operator to perform inspections with as little as 4 hours of training, with minimal metrological background.
BuildIT offers Metrology Assisted Assembly (MAA) as an extra add-on to the automated inspection application. Instead of building your part before you check whether it is within tolerance, BuildIT uses your current portable CMM to adjust the part to its proper position while it is being assembled. We guide the user through assembly tasks by displaying with clear graphical indications how to adjust a detail to be within tolerance.
BuildIT will integrate model quality control solutions into the assembly process, creating an environment and procedure that requires less man-hours, to offer a simpler process at reduced cost. You will be constantly updated throughout your methodology, preventing any errors during manufacturing.
