FESTOOL Creates PLM Environment with CoCreate OneSpace Model Manager

Steady stream of industry-first tools designed with CoCreate OneSpace Suite

SINDELFINGEN, Germany and FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- CoCreate Software, Inc., a leading provider of 3rd generation PLM software applications for high-tech electronics and machinery, today announced that FESTOOL GmbH has purchased 100 seats of CoCreate OneSpace Model Manager. FESTOOL also uses CoCreate OneSpace Modeling and various CoCreate OneSpace Suite modules.

FESTOOL, one of the world's most innovative manufacturers of hand-held tools for craftsmen, designs its award-winning products using CoCreate's 3D software tool, OneSpace Modeling. To further perfect its PLM processes, FESTOOL is now deploying CoCreate's data management solution, OneSpace Model Manager.

"Throughout our 82-year history, we have produced patents, developments, technologies and tools that have moved the industry forward," said Hans Rittmann, FESTOOL IT Department Manager. "But this is not enough. We are constantly assessing what we have already accomplished, in order to turn new ideas into better, more capable, more durable, more ergonomic, safer equipment with even better ROI. This is an ongoing process."

"We at FESTOOL appreciate how simple it is to learn and use OneSpace Modeling," said Rittmann. "Another huge advantage we see with OneSpace Modeling is that when we start a new design we don't waste time wondering 'How do I design this part.' We can concentrate at all times on the actual development of the product."

"Perfection in detail and the final geometry of a design are not achieved immediately, but must be developed," said Rittmann. "Therefore, it is important that everyone has total flexibility to create and change parts at any time. The history-free OneSpace Modeling software gives us this advantage."

FESTOOL works closely with its four sister companies to develop and manufacture all of its top-of-the-line products. Deploying OneSpace Model Manager will allow FESTOOL to better orchestrate its 3D product development process, something extremely important to the efficiency-conscious enterprise -- FESTOOL, in Neidlingen, Germany, has often received "Factory of the Year" recognition for its minimum-waste processes.

OneSpace Model Manager will perfect FESTOOL's PLM environment by allowing designers throughout the dispersed team to quickly load and store design data, regardless of its size. Plus, OneSpace Model Manager preserves system resources by supporting lightweight models and partial load, so that designers load only what they need when they need it.

For FESTOOL, a streamlined design environment is key to staying ahead of the competition. "CoCreate history-free CAD software and its tightly integrated OneSpace Model Manager make up the most powerful solution available to the high-tech industry," Rittmann said.
