Siemens’ Geolus Search now embedded in Authentise platform
Salt Lake City, UT; 15 August 2017 – Authentise, a leader in process automation software for additive manufacturing, today announced a distribution partnership with Siemens PLM Software, a leading global provider of PLM software, to make shape search technology more broadly available to the digital manufacturing industry. This partnership embeds Siemens PLM’s shape search technology, Geolus Search, in Authentise’s 3Diax, the API platform for additive manufacturing. The resulting module makes shape search easy to implement in custom, integrated workflows that stretch across the digital thread from design to production. These workflows benefit because knowledge associated with historical designs, such as previous production notes, material choices or intellectual property rights, can be identified based on the geometry, not keywords.
Specifically, the 3Diax Module featuring Geolus® software:
- helps to determine candidate designs for additive manufacturing and to recognise those designs that share similar compensation models and parameters, saving valuable time in the design process;
- allows the customer to identify similar designs to highly classified internal ones in order to share externally for quotes or review to enable more transparency and communication; and,
- safeguards companies from breaching intellectual property regulations by scanning any parts against blacklists.
“We are delighted to be working with Siemens to extend our offering,” says Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise. “We partner with a variety of companies to increase both the breadth and depth of modules on 3Diax. It is great to see that even more established players see an opportunity in working with 3Diax to give those customers pursuing advanced process automation the tools in the format they need.”
“Siemens PLM Software is committed to creating partnerships that enhance the experience of end-users. We are pleased to partner with Authentise to provide integrated solutions that can improve the productivity of the digital manufacturing community,” says Evan Knuttila, Vice President Global Sales – PLM Components, Siemens PLM Software.
