CogniTens Ltd.’s Dimensional Metrology Technology Earns Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation of the Year Award
London, 28th September 2006 -- Frost & Sullivan presents the 2006 Technology Innovation of the Year Award to CogniTens Ltd. for its leading and innovative dimensional measurement technology, CoreView™. In presenting this award, Frost & Sullivan recognises the company’s commitment and efforts to realize the industry vision of simplifying dimensional information, making it available and comprehensible to experts and non-experts alike across manufacturing organizations.
“The CoreView format and underlying technology enables the acquisition of high accuracy, large-scale dimensional data in a fraction of a second,” notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Prathima Bommakanti. “This allows the encapsulation of high-volume dimensional data into small packages to achieve compactness, ease of use and propagation across distributed organisations.”
Used in automotive industry sectors, including several original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), tier-1 suppliers, die makers, line builders and integrators, as well as engineering houses and service bureaus, Coreview™ based platforms and software products such as Optigo™, OptiCell™, CoreView Pro™, OptiPlan™ and others assists in developing and improving engineering and manufacturing processes.
A key advantage of this technology is that it is unaffected by surrounding environmental conditions. Other benefits include high accuracy & repeatability, versatility in measuring various parts, tools and assemblies in the shop floor environment as well as the compactness and intuitiveness of the measurement results.
With the trend among major manufacturing organisations in replacing traditional discrete point measurement systems with comprehensive colour ‘heat maps’, deviation from designs can be epitomised. This takes the practice of analysis, reporting and collaboration using dimensional measurement information to higher levels. Accurate 3D representation of automotive parts, tools and assemblies and their comparison to the design intent is an essential feature of the technology in this sector.
Its ability to meet specific needs, along with the capability to interpret and reflect new information during the product cycle, makes it a unique technology in the growing dimensional metrology sector.
Widely accepted by customers, the company’s comprehensive solutions based on CogniTens Optigo™ and OptiCell™ platforms along with their added value software products offer benefits of improved product quality, shorter development cycles, as well as reduced operational and capitals costs.
“CogniTens is considered by several major customers as the partner of choice for implementing value-added process changes in targeted applications,” states Ms. Bommakanti. “By offering a wide range of new functionality, enhancements, simplified interfaces and streamlined flow between the dimensional measurement solution components, it has succeeded in achieving a strong customer base in the automotive industry and positioning itself to support further growth.”
The company’s innovative strategies are driven by its R&D expertise and capabilities. CogniTens is an active participant in numerous industry action groups and joint R&D initiatives. In the future, CogniTens is expected to develop new dimensional measurement and analysis tools, as well as complementary dimensional strategies that will enable it to stay competitive and penetrate into other manufacturing industry verticals.
The Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation of the Year is presented to the company that has demonstrated technological superiority within its industry. This Award recognises the ability of the company to successfully develop and introduce new technology, formulate a well-designed product family and make significant product performance contributions to the industry.
