Hitherto, product inspections were manually performed using a measuring device. As the measurement data needed to be confirmed in detail while performing the inspection, a dedicated supervisor was assigned because, once an inspection began, it was not possible to leave the spot until the end of the inspection. The idea behind the automatic inspection system is to “have a computer perform the work that a person would do.” It is an unmanned system that uses a computer to automatically perform setup, measurement, adjustment, and recording while communicating with a measuring device and the product under inspection.
