GelSight, a pioneer in tactile intelligence technology, recently announced the release of GelSight Mobile 2.4. This software update for GelSight’s handheld mobile devices provides new features such as shot-peen measurement and enhanced pit detection, expanding the applications of GelSight Mobile in quality inspection, production line metrology, and maintenance and repair operations (MRO) workflows.
With GelSight Mobile 2.4, users have access to new surface analysis capabilities and improved functionality that will streamline inspection workflows.
The handheld GelSight Mobile device can be deployed on production and assembly lines to enable rapid and well-documented quality assurance decisions. Dimensions of scratches, dents, hits, gaps, offset, hole diameter, fastener flushness and more can be measured in high-resolution, on any surface, under any lighting conditions, in seconds.
GelSight’s technology enables digital sensing with the sensitivity and resolution of human touch. Data captured by GelSight’s elastomeric tactile-sensing platform leverages proprietary software and algorithms to provide detailed, accurate surface characterization that can generate significant gains in productivity on the production floor and in the field while reducing the costs associated with manual or tool-based visual inspection.
“After launching GelSight Mobile Series 2 late last year, we’ve continued to improve the capabilities of our system through software enhancements as we work with customers to identify new use cases for our tactile sensing technology,” said Dennis Lang, VP of product at GelSight. “The new features in GelSight Mobile 2.4 will allow us to further penetrate industries such as aerospace and automotive, and to expand into new sectors such as military, power generation, oil and gas, and precision manufacturing, where shot peen process control and detection of pit defects are critical processes.”
Key features in GelSight Mobile 2.4 include:
- Shot-peen measurement: Evaluate the depth and coverage of shot peening to determine whether parts have been sufficiently treated to achieve the desired level of strength.
- Enhanced pit detection: Based on input from customers using pit detection for corrosion inspection, users can now set minimum and maximum pit depths and diameters enhancing the capabilities of GelSight’s pit detection algorithm.
- Snap to lines and features: When analyzing images, easily select features of interest, simplifying set up and making analysis faster.
- Offset tool with beta artificial intelligence: The new AI module learns from the users’ behavior and observes repetitive workflows to suggest automated settings that can help improve productivity.
