Tecnomatix Releases eM-Probe CAD Version 7.2 to Generate Off-line Inspection Programs for CATIA V5

September 15, 2004 – Tecnomatix Technologies Ltd., the driving force in Manufacturing Process Management (MPM), announced today the release of eM-Probe CAD version 7.2, a software application to generate off-line inspection programs for CATIA V5. eM-Probe CAD is part of the comprehensive eMPower Quality suite of solutions for improving product quality, reducing production costs and increasing enterprise competitiveness. eM-Probe CAD, embedded in 3D CAD software, enables users to generate 3D CAD-based off-line inspection programs for Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) without data translation. It also enables users to use inspected data on the 3D CAD system to review and analyze tolerances. eM-Probe CAD support now encompasses CATIA V4, Unigraphics, and Pro/ENGINEER, as well as CATIA V5. By using GD&T data on the 3D CAD system, eM-Probe CAD enables users to generate off-line inspection programs for CMMs and perform review and analysis of tolerances, thus realizing paperless inspection, review and analysis. This will contribute to significant savings in the time and costs required to design and prepare production. eM-Probe CAD is the latest addition to the eMPower Quality offering for Catia V5, which also includes eM-Tolmate. Embedded in CATIA V5, eM-TolMate enables users to predict tolerance effects and mating conditions on critical-to-quality assembly characteristics. eM-Tolmate calculates the variation of such characteristics and the contribution of the tolerances to these variations.
