The inspection software for blade geometries

ZEISS INSPECT will help you ensure that everything runs smoothly in terms of blade geometry. Whether in power supply, aircraft and shipbuilding, electrical appliances or the automotive industry – the software analyzes both optical and tactile measurement data from coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and is compatible with all common data formats. From design to quality control, the software supports you in the efficient analysis of your measurement data. You too can benefit from the customized analysis tools for blades and airfoils.

The highlights of ZEISS INSPECT for airfoil analyses

Turbines and blade wheels as well as the analysis of their geometry is an important topic in many industries. With specific analysis functions and useful 2D and 3D evaluation features, ZEISS INSPECT sets new standards in the visualization and evaluation of measurement data as well as in the resulting decisions – system-independent and regardless of whether measured with optical systems or your coordinate measuring machine.

New feature

3D Throat Area

Unique on the market: digital analysis of the throat area. Use ZEISS INSPECT to determine the minimum three-dimensional area between two blades. This gives you the geometrically narrowest cross-section – regardless of whether it is a partial area or a closed channel.

Advanced evaluation

Virtual Balancing

A digital twin saves you valuable assembly time. Based on the digital 3D model, you define the ideal order of blades before assembly and thus prevent imbalances. ZEISS INSPECT supports you step by step.


Create your own functions

Using Python interface and the command recorder, record all operations in the software, and save them as a script. You can edit and customize this code and get functions that will make your work easier.
Or make it easy on yourself and take a look at our apps: Here we have already implemented many functions that streamline your processes and reduce process fluctuations.

Save time and money

Same series, new part? Thanks to the parametric kernel of ZEISS INSPECT, you do not need a new inspection plan. That’s because all inspection steps are saved in the background enabling you to use them over again, or adapt them to new circumstances, and create your measurement reports. Welcome to a new level of efficiency.

A look into practice

Measuring and analyzing blisks

If you measure and inspect a single blade of a blisk, ZEISS INSPECT allows you to efficiently repeat this process for any number of additional blades on the blisk.

Measuring and analyzing guide vanes

A guide vane usually consists of a vane blade as well as a hub and a casing cover band. The complete inspection of a guide vane is also easily possible with ZEISS INSPECT.

Measuring and analyzing drums

Drums consist of several blisks. These blisks are welded together to form a drum. With ZEISS INSPECT, you can also inspect complete drums.
