RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., September 13, 2010- Geomagic and New River Kinematics (NRK) today released Power3 Suite, integrated software that enables industrial companies to analyze, inspect and validate manufacturing processes for greater accuracy and productivity.  The Power3 Suite is on display at booth # E-5330 at IMTS 2010 this week in Chicago, Ill.

Power3 Suite combines NRK’s SpatialAnalyzer Ultimate 3D traceable metrology software, plus native CAD data import, with Geomagic Studio 12 reverse engineering software and Geomagic Qualify 12 3D inspection software.  Key capabilities and benefits of Power3 Suite include:

  • Combining large-scale measurement data and precise point-cloud data -Inspect, check and validate almost any manufacturing process and part before and during manufacturing.
  • Verifying quality and tolerance conformance via digital inspection of every aspect of a part- Deliver immediate and clear understanding of potential issues in the manufacturing process that need to be addressed.
  • Extensive and automated reporting of inspection processes- Save time and effort with pre-defined automated processes in place.
  • Checking and redesigning parts for retrofit based on accurate scan data-Ensure accuracy of new parts within existing assemblies before they are built.
  • Ability to use data from any standard instrument and integrate the data from multiple sources- Accelerate productivity by combining data from many sources at once.
  • Creating precise 3D CAD models of parts from scan data – Build accuracy and effectiveness by performing design, analysis and rapid manufacturing directly from collected part data.

“Power3 Suite can deliver huge savings and accelerate turnaround time for major processes within almost any manufacturing environment,” says Karl Matthews, vice president of product management at Geomagic.  “The combined software technologies deliver the ability to re-engineer processes and parts and discover potential problems in a digital environment before committing expensive physical resources.”

Power3 Suite is sold by both Geomagic and New River Kinematics as part of each company’s portfolio of solutions for advanced manufacturing.
