Danatec uses Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA PLM Express
Auburn Hills, MI., USA, & Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, April 7, 2008  Dassault Systèmes announced that Danatec AB, a Swedish design engineering company, has selected its new PLM suite for the mid-market, DELMIA PLM Express. Danatec selected DELMIA PLM Express to innovate and speed time-to-market for its clients’ robotic production solutions while increasing flexibility, improving quality, reducing costs, and controlling investments.

“Our investment in the DELMIA PLM Express Workcell Builder and Simulation Package has given us unique possibilities to plan, design, simulate, and finally program production cells within the same tool,” said Peter Hedlund, project and robotic manager at Danatec AB. “The importance of using the same tool to design fixtures and then verify them towards other equipment was an important reason why we choose DELMIA PLM Express.”

Danatec, a product-production development consultancy within the manufacturing, mining, and process industries, is the first company to implement DELMIA PLM Express. Dantec works both with construction at their clients’ sites as well as in-house in order to make production more effective. It manages new manufacturing equipment throughout its lifecycle, from pre-study to construction, manufacturing, assembly, implementation and service.

Danatec will be using DELMIA PLM Express to conduct production verification for products already in the design stage, while rapidly designing tools and fixtures in robotic environments for its clients. DELMIA PLM Express will also help Danatec to verify robot reachability throughout the production process, thereby limiting costly changes that would need to be made during the latter stages of production planning.

“Danatec is an excellent example of the importance of PLM for mid-market companies and to show the capabilities of DELMIA PLM Express,” said Daniel Samefors, business development manager, DELMIA Nordics PLM Value Channel. “We are pleased to bring these important benefits to the next tier of customers as they design manufacturing equipment operations.”

DELMIA PLM Express was developed from the ground up specifically for mid-market companies. It is perfect for 5 to 50-plus person companies or any organization that has a need for an entry-level PLM value channel offering for manufacturing. It delivers all the functionality and benefits of DELMIA in a way that allows customers to select a role-based solution that best matches their business needs.

DELMIA PLM Express is organized into five common job-related roles—resource planning, robotics, ergonomics, process planning, and controls—to address specific business needs and organizational definitions.

DELMIA is a premier brand of Dassault Systèmes for digital manufacturing solutions, focused on two unique software applications that can be used to streamline manufacturing processes. DELMIA Automation provides solutions to digitally design, test and validate the control of a machine, workcell, or entire factory line and DELMIA PLM provides the process and resource capability to enable continuous creation and validation of manufacturing processes as related to the product throughout the entire product lifecycle. DELMIA serves industries where the optimization of manufacturing processes is critical, including automotive, aerospace, fabrication and assembly, electrical and electronics, consumer goods, plant, and shipbuilding sectors.
