Kubotek's New CAD Translation Validation Product Debuts at IMTS
A new CAD validation component that is essential for the aerospace industry.
Kubotek3D, developer of precision geometry software technology, recently introduced K-Compare Validate, its new, stand-alone CAD translation validation software built on the universal CAD architecture of the new Kubotek Kosmos 3D framework.
K-Compare Validate supplants Kubotek Validation Tool, introduced in 2008 and the current technology leader for CAD translation validation for supplier quality compliance in the aerospace manufacturing industry. K-Compare Validate provides a streamlined user interface and significantly faster operation over its predecessor.
K-Compare Validate is the first product released under the K-Compare brand. The new software will be unveiled at IMTS (International Manufacturing technology Show) in September 2018.
K-Compare Validate offers:
- Quality systems compliance with standards such as Boeing D6-51991
- Tamper-proof quality documentation and reporting
- Thorough model inspection through face-based comparison
- Model interrogation, visual overlay and measurement
- Stand-alone read support for CATIA, NX, Creo, Solidworks, STEP, IGES, etc.
- Batch validation
Using aluminum tooling instead of traditional tools steels reduces cycle time and costs, but requires up-front, open communications between moldmaker, molder, material supplier and hot runner manifold supplier.
Reducing changeover times will eliminate waste, moving a shop closer to becoming lean.
