Sigmetrix Releases the Newest Version of CETOL 6s Tolerance Analysis Software

MCKINNEY, Texas, Aug. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Sigmetrix, experts in mechanical variation management, announced their latest version of CETOL 6 tolerance analysis software, version 10.4, is now available for immediate download.

Tolerance analysis benefits businesses in many ways. It helps improve profitability by balancing quality with manufacturing cost. Companies can also realize faster time to market by reducing the need for additional design and prototype cycles. Finally, it allows companies to gain confidence in their product and process decisions before making costly investments.

"The cost of achieving a quality product grows exponentially as it moves from design to manufacturing and finally to customers hands," stated Sigmetrix President, James Stoddard. "CETOL 6 gives engineers the tools to identify and resolve issues earlier in the process, helping to maximize the profitability of products for a company."

CETOL 6 enables product development teams to easily and fully understand the often-complex impact of dimensional and assembly variation on their designs. This knowledge enables them to make adjustments before problems appear in manufacturing or, even worse, in their customers' hands. Users of all expertise levels will appreciate the multiple levels of assistance available within the software.

CETOL 6 10.4 encompasses several enhancements including:

    --  -- Unilateral measurement requirements - When defining measurement
        requirements, you may specify just an upper or lower limit
    --  -- Improved report processing - Report templates now include options for
        specifying how the report is post processed and opened in the target
        application for report layout
    --  -- New command-line execution options for Creo allow for automation of
        starting a new CETOL analysis or working with data saved from a previous
    --  -- Improved selection process - When adding a joint or a measurement,
        after selecting the first feature, that part is either hidden or changed
        to transparent so that the second selection is easier
    --  -- Better precision control - When entering a tolerance value, the
        precision automatically increases as you enter more digits, but the
        precision can only be decreased by specific user action
    --  -- Data management improvements for renamed assemblies - When the model
        data is stored in the top-level assembly and the CAD assembly has been
        renamed, CETOL makes it easier for the user to understand that saved
        data exists and map it to the newly named assembly
    --  -- Revised severities - The severities of some advisor messages have
        been adjusted to improve consistency between types of messages
    --  -- Naming improvements in the Analyzer - The Analyzer now includes the
        CAD name for assemblies, parts, and linked annotations in the
        appropriate columns

Sigmetrix provides a complete portfolio helping customers design and produce better products through mechanical variation management. In addition to CETOL 6 , Sigmetrix offers an array of software and training solutions including:

    --  -- EZtol, a 1D analysis tool designed to make it easier to create,
        manage and report upon multiple 1D tolerance analyses in an assembly
    --  -- GD&T Advisor, an interactive tool that provides expert guidance on
        the correct application of GD&T withing the PTC Creo environment
    --  -- Training on a variety of topics including GD&T, tolerance analysis,
        dimensional management, and MBD / MBE
    --  -- Consulting and implementation services team with years of experience
        in tolerance analysis and GD&T definition offers a variety of consulting
        services to augment your team, speed your project along and run analyses
        for your assemblies
