PowerInspect: 3D measurement software for a wide range of metrology hardware  

Why use Fusion 360 with PowerInspect? 

Increase part quality 

Use in-process inspection to control your manufacturing process and avoid non-conformance.

Speed up production times 

Replace labor intensive manual processes with automated workflows to complete projects faster. 

Avoid production bottlenecks 

Use on machine verification on the shop floor to free up the quality control team.

What you can do with PowerInspect 

Combine inspection and verification in CNC machining 

PowerInspect includes comprehensive inspection tools that can be used to measure parts while they’re still loaded into the machine using spindle-mounted probes. Machine tool probing helps you make informed scrap or rework decisions quickly.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What is PowerInspect used for?

PowerInspect is metrology software used to measure complex 3D shapes using different types of hardware. PowerInspect works with contact-based hardware, such as co-ordinate measuring machines, articulated arms, or spindle-mounted probes in CNC machines. PowerInspect also works with non-contact hardware (such as structured light scanners). Inspection typically compares a physical component against a 3D CAD model or 2D drawing.

Who uses PowerInspect?

PowerInspect software is used by manufacturers to monitor and control the quality of parts being produced, as well as inspectors and quality control engineers to inspect parts. CNC machine operators who use on machine verification also use PowerInspect software to assist with part setup and measurement to ensure parts are produced to specification and within tolerance.
