PolyWorks | Inspector™

The 3D analysis and quality control inspection software solution. Gain control of your product engineering and manufacturing process.

About PolyWorks | Inspector™

PolyWorks|Inspector™ is the universal 3D dimensional analysis and quality control inspection software solution empowering you with the ability to:

  • Control tool or part dimensions
  • Identify and prevent manufacturing and assembly problems
  • Guide assembly building through real-time measurements
  • Oversee the quality of assembled products using portable metrology devices and CNC CMMs

Universal Inspection Software Platform

With just one inspection software to master, dramatically reduce your operational costs by increasing measurement specialist competency, eliminating metrology silos, boosting employee mobility and improving overall teamwork efficiency.

Complete Dimensional Analysis and Quality Control Toolbox

At the heart of PolyWorks|Inspector™ lies a powerful inspection engine with parametric data handling, certified mathematical algorithms, and extensive visual and audio feedback capabilities.

This enables Users to extract relevant information from measured 3D data, automate the inspection process when more than one piece is measured, structure the presentation of measurement results to assist and encourage enterprise-wide digital collaboration

Market-Leading portable metrology platform

Renowned for the power and stability of its direct hardware interfaces, PolyWorks|Inspector™ offers an extensive set of guidance technologies that the world’s largest manufacturing OEMs trust to implement efficient, precise and repeatable measurement processes for portable metrology devices.

High-productivity CNC CMM solution

PolyWorks|Inspector™ has reinvented the way inspection projects are set up and executed on CNC CMMs, within a flexible, user-friendly and efficient CNC CMM operational paradigm, similar to the one we offer for portable metrology devices.
