“We are very excited to be working with Rand due to their wide reach within the Aerospace and Automotive industries. Leading companies within these areas are embracing 3D centric design and manufacturing, eliminating the need for engineering drawings. As these designs flow down to the supply chain, however, data changes can occur. Validation Tool easily identifies discrepancies so that they can be successfully controlled. With the help of Rand North America, we feel that we can effectively deliver this essential tool to manufacturing companies throughout the Americas,” said Robert Bean, Executive Vice President of Kubotek USA.
The Kubotek USA Validation tools uses unique 3D pattern matching and feature discovery technology to compare two 3D models to each other at a given tolerance. This innovative method provides robust results quickly, allowing companies to compare data at any step within the design-manufacturing-inspect process. The Validation Tool produces reports that insure data integrity and capture change information vital for its customers.
“With drawings disappearing as the primary definition of product designs, new technology is needed to identify any and all changes made to 3D models. Kubotek has created a product that specifically addresses this need. This solution will allow our customers to immediately identify changes due to translations and revisions giving them control of their 3D data,” stated Dan J. Smith, Vice President of Business Development for Rand North America. Rand will sell the Kubotek Validation Tool software to its customers in North America, complementing its CATIA PLM Software and Q-Checker model quality products.
