TORONTO, Canada, July 2, 2020 – Origin’s new CheckMate for SOLIDWORKS release includes a number of features wanted by aerospace, defense, automotive and machinery customers looking for lean manufacturing and digital thread solutions.
Here are some examples:
Lean Manufacturing – Critical features needed to align parts on inspection features were impossible to measure repeatedly. The new release of CheckMate for SOLIDWORKS turns these features into virtual features. They can be measured with precision every time and measurement results can be used in GD&T analysis. This is critical for manufacturing engineers as they set up to manufacture assemblies made from stamping, machining and welding.
Digital Thread – Instead of plowing through numeric print outs – with this newest version – Origin CheckMate users will see In-Out tolerance conditions of geometry at a glance. The enhancement of CheckMate’s digital twin will enable it to display geometry condition as face colors on part models. Green shows good, red and blue show high or low. CheckMate also provides users with the same ability to use all MBD in the same automated programming workflow at the same time whether the source was DimXpert from SOLIDWORKS or annotations from NX, ProE, CATIA.
“While inspection has long been an afterthought, it’s become a core tool of manufacturing engineers,” said Murray Desnoyer, founder of Origin International. “In smart manufacturing and the digital thread, inspection is no longer a data archiving function. CheckMate’s ability to analyze the GD&T of inspection data in SOLIDWORKS gives manufacturing engineers a tool for machine utilization and throughput that they need and have never had.”
