World-class machinery company upgrades to 3D without abandoning its design heritage
SINDELFINGEN, Germany – 21 May 2007 – CoCreate Software GmbH, a leading provider of 3rd Generation PLM, today announced that Sympak Corazza Spa have upgraded their design environment to 3D CAD, implementing new licenses of CoCreate OneSpace Modeling.
The company, based in Bologna, Italy, lies in the very heart of the “Packaging Valley.” In 1954, the company began by developing the FD220, a machine that wraps bullion cubes. Next, it added more equipment to meet the requirements of customers like Kraft, Unilever, Nestlé and Star. Since then, Corazza has installed more than 3000 machines in 75 countries for dosing and wrapping bullion cubes, processed cheese and butter portions.
“We have relied on CoCreate for over 10 years,” says Luigi Bassi, IT Manager at Sympak Corazza Spa, Italy. “We started with CoCreate’s 2D software, CoCreate OneSpace Drafting [formerly ME10], which many considered a must for mechanical engineering companies at that time.”
The company has now selected CoCreate for its 3D solution for two reasons. First, it couldn’t risk losing its existing library of designs. “Our rich heritage of drawings represents the actual history of Sympak Corazza Spa,” says Bassi. With OneSpace Modeling, the company ensured that its existing drawings remained compatible with future work.
Second, CoCreate’s OneSpace Modeling offers history-free design. “We manufacture machinery with several high-tech aggregates,” says Bassi. “CoCreate’s Dynamic Modeling based approach is ideal for leveraging and maximizing our designers' creativity.”
OneSpace Modeling is an essential part of CoCreate’s lean product development philosophy. Lean product development calls for technology that blends easily with existing production tools, but also brings significantly less complexity and more value to design processes. As such, OneSpace Modeling supports features like rich master models, so designers can attach any information to models. Then, anyone who uses the model later can be sure of the original designer’s intent.
With the new licenses, Sympak Corazza now works with 17 OneSpace Drafting and 5 OneSpace Modeling seats. They’ve also added Model Manager for OneSpace Modeling for data management and storage; plus they’ve powered up their OneSpace Modeling licenses to include Advanced Design modules.
CoCreate Software is for leaders in high-tech electronics and machinery, and other innovative companies facing intense time to market pressure. Many of the world’s best known product development companies depend on CoCreate in order to achieve unprecedented speed and flexibility.
CoCreate’s 3rd generation approach to product lifecycle management (3G PLM) streamlines the process of planning, developing and manufacturing products. As the world’s #1 provider of Dynamic Modeling based software, CoCreate is the ideal platform for lean product development.
