Software Designed for Cutting Tool Inspection

The PG1000 REACTION software was developed by PG Inspection Technologies for the exclusive purpose of cutting tool inspection. The word REACTION is an acronym for REAltime Cutting Tool InspectION.

Our software digitally analyzes five million pixels, sorting over sixteen million colors at a rate of fifteen times per second to find patterns and shapes, overlooking the excessive glare from too much direct light, shadows, irregular or broken shapes.

REACTION software does not electronically enhance, crop, or magnify tool images in any way. What you see is exactly what the camera captures. The GPU and CPU analyze to help you, the user, inspect your cutting tools.

We did not use a CAD system as the backbone of our software. CAD systems, while great for drawing images and dimensioning them on paper, are incapable of doing complex custom image analysis. Instead, we wrote our own software to fill the needs of cutting tool inspection. In the process, we’ve eliminated the extraneous features, enabling inspectors to work more efficiently.

Easy to Use Inspection Software

Our goal is to help enhance your cutting tool inspection. That’s why the PG software development team listened to you. In fact, our software incorporates a significant amount of feedback received from customers over the years. The end result is a robust, made-in-the-USA system that is easy to understand and highly adaptable to user preferences.

We also provide a complete series of training videos to accelerate your understanding of our software.
