Origin International Inc.: CheckMate for SOLIDWORKS®
About Origin International Inc.:
Origin’s industry-leading metrology solutions extend to the company’s roots. Since Origin’s founding in 1992 we have maintained a clear focus on dimensional metrology. Regardless of CAD source data, or measurement tools, be they CMM, scanner, articulating arm or theodolite Origin customers know they can rely on our CheckMate suite of dimensional metrology software to maximize their multi-million dollar design and metrology investments. We are proud of our leadership and track record for success in solving the most challenging dimensional problems faced by quality professionals and manufacturing engineers in the aerospace, oil and gas, consumer goods and automotive industries.
CheckMate for SOLIDWORKS® is a modular CAD based suite of dimensional metrology software used by quality professionals and manufacturing engineers to qualify parts, identify and fix problems and improve manufacturing processes.
At the heart of the CheckMate suite of software is SoftFit™ Solver, a browser driven fitting engine with a robust set of user controls including multiple fitting algorithms with the ability to constrain translation and rotation in all three axis and apply scaling.
CheckMate SoftFit™ Solver with its unique what-if capabilities provides engineers with unparalleled functionality to perform root cause analysis tasks by identifying problems and developing best-fix corrective action scenarios to deliver better products faster. The ability to process data from multiple samples and make corrections to tooling and or processes based on the mean deviation eliminates knee jerk tooling changes often made when making tool changes based on trial and error methods using small sample sizes and ensures that the process is both capable and under control.
In the manufacturing of high value parts the same what-if tools can prove to be invaluable to reduce scrap, determine functional acceptance of non compliant parts and to adapt downstream processes based on measured results.
With strict adherence to DMIS (Dimensional Measurement Interface Standard) and the emerging Q.I.F. (Quality Information Framework) standards, CheckMate for SOLIDWORKS ability to work with all forms of dimensional measuring equipment such as laser scanners, articulating arms, and theodolites by providing a common platform makes interoperability across dissimilar equipment not found elsewhere a reality.
