In 1983 Prolink embarked on a mission to write a Statistical Process Control (SPC) software program called QC-CALC™ to interface with various automatic inspection equipment. The need for an easy to use data collection and analysis software was apparent.
Many other SPC packages perform the same analysis functions as QC-CALC, but none offer the automatic database creation that has been our cornerstone. We have listened to customer’s needs and tailored the software accordingly. Our goal is to increase our customer’s awareness of process problems to save them time and money. The key is to obtain the data without adding cost and to report the analysis in a timely manner.
Prolink has been in the Data Collection and SPC software business
exclusively for 31 years. The product is sold in 6 different modules as
Enterprise Report Scheduler (ERS) facilitates the creation of interactive charts, dashboards, and Full Views enabling a top-down view of the overall quality within the factory.

QC-Sort is a non-statistical application that is used to easily identify out of specification parts on a multiple part fixture.
QC-Gage is designed to collect inspection data directly from electronic gages that are not as programmable as CMMs. Regardless of the data source, QC-Gage is ready to automate data collection.
QC-PLC provides a fast and easy method of reading data from programmable logic controllers (PLCs) at regular intervals saving time & money with improved accuracy.
software is all licensed to individual PCs and therefore the appropriate module
is installed on each machine that will use the software. The typical
installation has data collection modules installed on PCs where the data is
being created and collected with those PCs connected to a network where the data
is saved on a central network server. Other PCs used by engineers and managers
would have the analysis or reporting modules installed and access the data on
the network server. The SQL version of the installation simply provides a more
robust system for larger amounts of data and more users reporting from the
