CETOL 6σ

EnginSoft are European distributors of leading Precise Constraint Technology software CETOL 6σ, developed by Sigmetrix LLC.

Companies products can fail when it is not possible to assemble the manufactured component parts leaving designers and engineers facing questions such as “Can the product I’ve designed be assembled?” or “Will the product function as intended once assembled?”

Many companies find problems arise from not understanding the potential effects of variation. Parts are designed in a perfect CAD environment, only to come together in unexpected ways as tolerance variations “stack-up” and interact to cause a product failure. To avoid costs and the loss of customer confidence associated with situations like this, businesses have two options: Throw money at the problem by tightening tolerances, which will increase the manufacturing costs, or use the market leading Tolerance Analysis software to intelligently understand and address the issue.

CETOL 6σ is a tolerance analysis and optimisation software tool providing the invaluable insight needed to address the above issues and to confidently release designs for manufacture. You will be able to assess the manufacturability of your designs long before they reach production.

CETOL 6σ enables designers and engineers to address multi-dimensional problems, by using a mathematical description of your CAD geometry. This unique method allows you to receive immediate analytical feedback, utilising the easy-to-use modelling, analysis and reporting components. The user is guided through the tolerance analysis and optimisation process whilst being informed about missing or erroneous data.

Unlike simple 1D stack-up analysis or Monte Carlo Simulation, CETOL 6σ pursues a statistical approach employing advanced precise constraint technology, displayed in an intuitive graphical user interface. This approach accelerates the ability to identify part sensitivities and components that have the most significant contribute to the total variation. Discovering critical-to-quality assembly characteristics has never been easier.
