Automated CAD-Based Inspection

CAD2scan, a CAD-based automated inspection planning tool, is the latest feature of the Kitov Smart Planner. By combining the tool with Kitov’s Smart Visual Inspection and Review Station, customers can automate inspection solutions that are too difficult and time-consuming to manually program and deploy. The software automatically takes all available information from the CAD, including geometric and component specifications, and uses it for the planning of the robot inspection. Semantic information extracted from the CAD is passed on to Kitov semantic detectors. CAD2scan technology is implemented as a plugin to common CAD software systems (currently available for SolidWorks and Creo). It also supports the evolving QIF (quality information framework) ISO standard and can parse visual inspection requirements embedded into it.
