Point of View

Why Clobotics believes that 1+1=3 when it comes to automating blade inspections

By Lennart Kuhlmeier, Principal Blade Engineer at Clobotics

Designing visual blade inspection data collection and analysis as an integrated system is what unlocks the highest levels of performance and quality possible. The only way to achieve a fully automatic process is for the analysis system to know exactly what format of data to expect from the data collection system. And a fully automatic system -- from pushing the button to start the inspection to receiving the findings report -- will enable turnaround times for receiving a complete blade damage overview measured in minutes or at most hours versus the days or even weeks that most customers wait today.
