The SavvyInspector® operator interface is designed for easy factory-floor operation, while expanding its application in the role of “Master Inspector” for QA, QC and MRB decisions. The operator enters the inspection level required, and then uses the manual x-y stage or the joystick to locate the desired defect on the real-time viewing screen. In motorizied systems the “autoscan” feature creates indexed image files for the entire surface, documenting the condition of the optic and allowing the operator to identify regions on the part which require further review. The coordinates can be entered and the system returns to the desired location with the push of a button.
The software reports the scratch grade or dig value automatically. Scratch lengths are measured with the click of the mouse. The “always on” inspection mode and programmable grade bars allow the operator to get real-time feedback on whether a selected imperfection is acceptable or not with a simple visual interface.
For careful review and documentation of a lens surface, SavvyInspector® software offers data management tools. These allow the proper capture and archiving of screenshots as well as the grade for each error on a surface. Additionally, a summary log in CSV format or an inspection report is generated.
Accumulation rules can be applied using the SavvyAccumulator™ spreadsheet. Custom calibration files can be created for specific project or customer needs by the Quality Engineer as needed. The calibration data can then be saved and accessed from the inspection mode.
