Through the use of OneSpace Suite PLM software from CoCreate Software Inc., SEMA Maschinenbau GmbH cut delivery times of its innovative metal-cutting machine tools from 12 months to 8.
Based in Traunkirchen, Austria, the international manufacturer uses OneSpace Modeling, OneSpace Model Manager, the add-on module FE Analysis and the SolidPower, a standard parts library from CoCreate’s certified partner TECHSOFT.
Said Martin Spiessberger, design manager at SEMA, “To meet these deadlines, we use large teams working simultaneously on one design. OneSpace Model Manager must integrate external engineering firms into our projects without any problems.”
Engineers frequently copy the models, components, and parts managed in OneSpace Model Manager and adapt them for new projects. Spiessberger estimates that up to 80% of the company’s parts can be reused directly or with only slight adjustments.
While the model manager program ensures parts are easy to find and track, the dynamic modeling approach to product design makes it easy to rework existing models.
“Our clients expect ever shorter project runtimes, yet their machinery is increasingly complex, and the procurement of parts gets more time consuming,” says Spiessberger. “With the OneSpace Suite, we can act quickly and flexibly to meet customer requirements.”
