Robotic 3D Geometric Inspection (for in-process control and validation)


TPR has developed its own “plug & play” advanced software toolkit, that allows any robot to communicate with any PC-based process. Called “Robotic Software Hub”, It’s the heart of its robotic 3D geometric inspection solution (AIR: Automated Inspection and Reporting).

Connections are available for most industrial robot controllers, but we are happy to port to any machine. TPR is an authorised Creaform robot integration partner, unbound by territories.

For analysis software we are using the Innovmetric “Polyworks” technology, being one of the first sites to test their collaborative software suite integration with Siemens Product Lifecycle Management platform (enterprise-wide virtual manufacturing)


A fully automated 3D inspection solution has been designed, developed and manufactured in The Midlands,
UK (Lichfield, Birmingham and Nottingham).
