Sigmetrix has released CETOL 6σ, its solution for tolerance analysis. Designers and engineers use CETOL 6σ to see the impact that tolerance changes will have on their overall assembly. Sigmetrix says their technology enables product development teams to optimize their design and manufacturing goals so they can deliver higher quality and more precisely engineered products. 

New features in Version 11.0 include: 

  • Direct support for patterns, pattern tolerances and patterns establishing datums
  • Display of tolerance information, including GD&T/GPS FCF, in the model tree
  • Ability to edit tolerances directly in the model tree
  • Ability to specify a datum feature label separate from the feature name
  • New installer with improved interface including quick access to Installation Guide and Release Notes

“This latest version of CETOL 6σ represents a tremendous advancement in the overall user experience with its added GD&T and direct pattern support,” said Sigmetrix President and CEO James Stoddard in a statement.  “Adding support for these features with CETOL 6σ v11.0 will enable even more insight about the variation in their products with unparalleled ease and speed.”

Sigmetrix says mechanical variation management benefits businesses in many ways. It helps improve profitability by balancing quality with manufacturing cost. The company says CETOL 6σ users can also achieve faster time to market by reducing the need for additional design and prototype cycles. Sigmetrix also says engineering and manufacturing teams use it to help maximize return on their work in model-based design (MBD) and model based engineering (MBE); enable more innovative product design; and facilitate the capture, transfer and retention of critical product and process knowledge.

As with previous editions, CETOL 6σ is available in versions for PTC Creo; Dassault Systèmes Catia and SolidWorks; and Siemens NX. Each version of CETOL 6σ works directly with CAD files; there is no need for translation or data conversion before starting an analysis. 

A deeper look into the features and benefits of Sigmetrix CETOL 6σ is available here. 

Existing CETOL 6σ users may update to Version 11.0 here. 

Sigmetrix will offer a live webinar and demo of Sigmetrix CETOL 6σ Version 11.0 on June 3, 2021. For details and to register, click here.
