Applied Automation Technologies was incorporated in July 1987 in Michigan by Ray Karadayi for the purpose of developing CAD based dimensional measurement software products for both on-line and offline use.
Over the years, Applied Automation Technologies has remained a fully independent software company focused on the development of multiple products to suit the requirements of various dimensional measurement applications.
Thirty or so years ago, CAD based online dimensional measurement solutions didn’t exist. This generated a great deal of interest in CappsDMIS software from both end users and CMM OEMs. The demand for this technology allowed AAT to develop direct interfaces for numerous CMM controllers.
In later years, but long before the I++ protocol, AAT developed RMI; Remote Manufacturing Interface. RMI software and protocols allowed both AAT’s own software products and 3rd party software to interface directly with many CMM controllers via a common interface protocol. RMI can interface to most legacy CMM controllers. RMI-NC is the NC machine tool version of RMI and can connect to many machine tool controllers providing common interface capabilities.
