Spatial Components Provide Seamless CAD Translation for Armonicos 3D Inspection Software

Latest spGate and spGauge Releases Incorporate Product Manufacturing Information

Interview with Ray Bagley, Director of Product Planning and Management on Armonicos use of 3D InterOp

Broomfield, CO – December 15, 2009 - Spatial Corp., a leading provider of 3D development components for design, manufacturing and engineering applications, today announces Armonicos Co., Ltd., a leading CAD/CAM and Computer-Aided Testing (CAT) provider, has recently released their latest version of spGate, a multi-data exchange platform, and spGauge, a 3D inspection solution for industrial products. Both products rely on Spatial’s 3D InterOp components to provide high-quality CAD file translation for data reuse. Since 2003, Armonicos has used Spatial 3D software components in the development of their industry leading software solutions. The partnership enables Armonicos internal resources to focus on the development of key value-add capabilities, rather than CAD translator development, while reducing their time-to-market.

"The ability to import and repair to ensure useable CAD models is one of our key selling points. Consequently, we chose Spatial’s CAD file translation components because they provide the highest quality translation capabilities in the market. They also deliver a high-level of service and support to help us meet the demanding needs of our customers," stated Shigeki Morikawa, the Executive Director of the Geometry Product Room (GPR). "We are very pleased with Spatial’s continued focus on advancing their CAD translation product line including the addition of product manufacturing information."

Armonicos provides data translation, inspection, and reverse engineering solutions to many of Japan’s leading manufacturers. spGate is a multi-data exchange platform that reduces or eliminates translation problems commonly encountered when translating between design, analysis, manufacturing, and inspection systems. spGauge is a CAT solution for 3D inspection of industrial products. spGauge enables an accurate inspection by 3D pattern matching the imported point cloud data with the 3D design model. spScan is a reverse engineering system which uses non-contact measurement data and automatically generates high quality surfaces for use in CAD/CAM/CAE solutions.

"Our 3D InterOp product line has grown to be the clear market leader. Our customers include application developers across a wide range of industries with a variety of CAD file translation needs and geometry kernels. Their needs go beyond visualization and include the need to reuse the data within their applications," commented Ray Bagley, Spatial Director of Product Planning and Management. "We are pleased that companies such as Armonicos depend on Spatial as a trusted development partner."
