Minds Mechanical introduces IMI manufacturing and metrology software

March 21, 2017 - Minds Mechanical introduced Intelligent Manufacturing and Inspection (IMI), a precision manufacturing and metrology software solution. IMI is a server-based, multi-tenant solution which brings all aspects of the manufacturing-metrology lifecycle under one roof.  IMI is designed to streamline the process of uploading, sharing, inspecting, and collaborating on manufacturing and metrology data.

The multi-tenant structure of IMI automates vital communications by providing model revisioning and inspection transparency to designated users throughout the supply chain. OEM companies have on-demand access to the most current information regarding part production, inspection results, and project timelines. OEM design changes are propagated through IMI to any designated suppliers, reducing the likelihood of communication gaps.  IMI helps businesses share relevant manufacturing and inspection information while keeping sensitive data private, all from IMI’s centralized database.

Take control of the production process from start to finish with the IMI website including part, assembly, and project pages. All data is available in real time, with system notifications and alerts. View uploaded 3D models on the go through IMI’s browser-based portal and interactive CAD viewer with full support for mobile devices.

With IMI, inspections tell more than the binary pass/fail of a single part. Inspections are linked to specific parts, assemblies, inspection personnel, manufacturing equipment, and metrology hardware to provide specific insights and expand traceability through the manufacturing process and supply chain.
