Lattice Technology And Kubotek USA Announce Partner Agreement

Companies to Leverage Synergistic Applications for the Manufacturing Supply Chain.

San Francisco, CA— Lattice Technology® Inc., developers of digital manufacturing applications using the XVL® format, and Kubotek® USA, leaders in geometry-based 3D engineering software, today announced the completion of a new partner agreement. The agreement means both companies will work together to jointly market and sell their compatible 3D software products for the design-to-manufacture process.

Kubotek and Lattice Technology have come together to complement and strengthen each other’s comprehensive suite of 3D software product offerings. As independent companies with world-class digital manufacturing solutions, Kubotek and Lattice Technology will offer design-to-manufacture solutions that leverage 3D data through design, engineering, manufacturing and the supply chain. Customers will also see an increased joint presence of both companies at industry trade shows and events.

Kubotek’s Validation Tool™ is the leading PLM solutions tool for precise geometric CAD model comparison. Validation Tool is implemented in Aerospace, Automotive and other industries to validate and document intended and unintended changes in CAD and PMI data.

Lattice Technology Inc., sets the standard for digital mock up and technical documentation software in the manufacturing enterprise. With Lattice Technology Solutions, engineers can seamlessly and accurately perform design review, design processes, simulate assembly processes, create work instructions, illustrations and mBOMs/sBOMs direct from 3D data. Solutions include XVL Studio, Lattice3D Reporter and XVL Web Master.

“This agreement makes perfect sense since many of our customers are concerned about how to best leverage 3D data throughout the design-to-manufacture chain to achieve greater productivity and efficiency,” said Bob Bean, Executive Vice President, Kubotek USA. “While Kubotek provides world-class 3D Direct Modeling and PLM solution tools such as CAD file validation and comparison, Lattice Technology Solutions deliver seamless use of that 3D data for highly accurate process design, simulation, assembly design, and creation of documents for use across the manufacturing operation.”

“Kubotek’s best-in-class software products are a perfect fit for the Lattice Technology Solutions,” said Bill Barnes, General Manager, Lattice Technology Inc. “With this partnership, manufacturers now have access to an easily-implemented workflow for 3D data that extends across the entire enterprise. We are getting more and more demand from our customers for best in class solutions and by working with partners like Kubotek we can help deliver what they need.”
