SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan 26, 2009 -- Lattice Technology, developers of digital manufacturing applications using the XVL® format, today announced its new converter which supports the JT™ format.
JT is a format created and released by Siemens PLM. With its support of the JT format, the Lattice Technology Digital Manufacturing solutions can now convert JT data into the very accurate, highly compressed XVL format, which delivers up to 10 times more compression than similar precise JT formats. Once in XVL, the data can be used in Digital Mock Up (DMU), motion simulation, assembly animation, process design and instructions, and illustrations direct from 3D to enable digital manufacturing processes throughout the enterprise.
“It is our policy at Lattice Technology to ensure that our clients’ data format standards are supported, while still allowing them the flexibility and productivity that Lattice Technology Digital Manufacturing Solutions offer,” said Bill Barnes, GM, Lattice Technology. “The XVL format remains the most flexible, accurate and provides the industry’s best compression rates that allow manufacturers to leverage 3D into true digital manufacturing and lean processes.”
The XVL Converter Server for JT automates rapid conversion of JT format files into XVL. XVL is used by thousands of manufacturers worldwide to enable the productive use of 3D in manufacturing processes. Companies with a strategic mission of lean manufacturing through the use of digital data adopt XVL and Lattice Technology’s Digital Manufacturing solutions in order to strengthen their use of accurate, lightweight 3D data across the enterprise. XVL solutions leverage existing 3D CAD, PLM and ERP implementations to deliver tangible improvements in product design accuracy, product time-to-market and to actively reduce costs.
“Once your 3D is in XVL, it becomes highly flexible, allowing 3D to be actively used in disciplines that traditionally have not exploited 3D before. The Lattice Technology Digital Manufacturing applications enable the accurate creation of production processes, assembly animations, detailed design review on complete 3D assemblies, creation of illustration and more. With the release of this new Converter, now your JT data can be used with the same flexibility.”
The XVL Converter for JT expands manufacturers’ use of 3D across the entire manufacturing enterprise and is immediately available for trial and purchase.
