Open CASCADE to Develop Cadpak Win Version 3.0 for Mitutoyo

Metrology company will use the open-source 3D modeling components and Open CASCADE services for the continued development of its CMM software for off-line programming (December 17, 2001)
Open CASCADE is the software of choice for the next development phase of Cadpak Win, marketed by Mitutoyo as an optional software for the off-line programming of mechanical part inspection. Mitutoyo has ordered development services and maintenance from Open CASCADE for a total of nearly 300,000 Euros, with delivery of the new version scheduled for March 2002. In addition to turnkey development of the Cadpak Win application, Mitutoyo has requested three years of technical support.

Cadpak Win is designed to optimize use of expensive machine tool time for Mitutoyo's extensive range of Co-ordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) and is currently promoted and distributed by the company in France, Germany, Japan, Singapore and the U.K (where development is done). While the machine tool functions uninterruptedly in-line, Cadpak Win is used to enter the co-ordinates of a part which will serve as the model for quality control.

In the United Kingdom, Open CASCADE collaborates with EADS Matra Datavision Ltd. in a common effort to ensure customer satisfaction for all specific application developments.

Open CASCADE functions enable Cadpak Win to read data from a number of CAD systems in IGES, VDA, DXF or CATIA formats and improve measuring quality by filtering the imported geometric entities, encouraging optimal positioning of the probe head, and automatically adapting to the default parameters of the program.
