EagleBurgmann, one of the worldwide leading provider of industrial sealing technology, chooses RuleDesigner Configurator technology to automate product customization within the mechanical seals design departments.
Italy, October 14, 2014 - Engineering PLM Solutions announces today that EagleBurgmann Germany, one of the worldwide leading provider of industrial sealing technology, chooses RuleDesigner Configurator to automate mechanical seals customization and to provide designers distributed worldwide with the necessary design guidelines.
EagleBurgmann has a global customer-oriented design strategy and several distributed engineering departments. This scenario, combined to the high configurability of mechanical seals, lead the company to strive for providing designers globally distributed with all the necessary design guidelines. So, they decided to look for a configurator system to provide a global rule-based designing process which would have helped the designers in their daily task by automating product customization and by providing them with the necessary design guidelines.
After a software selection, EagleBurgmann chooses RuleDesigner Configurator. People involved in the evaluation were impressed by the deep and stable Solid-Edge integration, compared to that of the other configurators evaluated; by the user-friendly interface which allows users to start small processes with no training; by the extensive functionalities embedded in the system and, at the same time, by the possibility for users to add new functions by themselves, depending on their needs.
In the first step, RuleDesigner Configurator will be used in the design departments to support designers while customizing mechanical seals as for customer’s requirements: as a matter of fact, thanks to a rule-based process the system automatically updates the product geometry according to variables set. In addition, RuleDesigner Configurator gives the possibility to save time from a designer’s daily activity by automating processes that have always been performed manually.
By adopting RuleDesigner, EagleBurgmann aims at performing design activities faster, standardizing product configuration and, what’s more, making customization completely automatic. Also, the company is willing to extend its use even to the supply system departments.
“Choosing RuleDesigner Configurator grants us a benefit in our global design strategy. Moreover, besides giving the company the possibility to share design guidelines on a global scale, the configurator system allows us to match the exact requirements of each customer and to respond to their demands faster and properly. This is a competitive advantage for EagleBurgmann”, states Daniel Froehlich, Standardization EagleBurgmann Germany.
Assistance and support during the evaluation phase were provided by PBU CAD-Systeme GmbH, a distribution and solution partner of RuleDesigner. High-quality consulting and support are important to EagleBurgmann Germany, and PBU delivers. The cooperation with PBU was very beneficial as the staff knows the company and processes very well and regional proximity ensured a quick response to the customer demands.
