Burgmann Industries Optimizes its Construction Process With Siemens PLM Software's Solid Edge and Teamcenter

Siemens PLM Software announced that Burgmann Industries GmbH & Co. KG, one of the world's leading seal manufacturers, will implement Solid Edge® software for the 3D development of its products and Teamcenter® software for product data management and data integration into its ERP system.

Burgmann Industries is using Teamcenter in combination with Solid Edge, a hybrid 2D/3D design system and a core component of the UGS Velocity SeriesT portfolio, in order to consistently manage the extensive stock of available product data. With Siemens PLM Software's solutions, Burgmann Industries is forging a link between the engineering and commercial departments in order to retrieve important product data via their ERP system.

"To convert development from 2D to 3D, we considered and tested solutions from several providers," said Daniel Ketterer, project manager for Global Technology Management at Burgmann Industries. "During the testing phase, we were sold on the simple derivation option from 3D to 2D constructions offered by Solid Edge. We develop our seals in 3D, but most customers want to see the constructions in 2D. With the automatic 2D derivation, we are able to tighten our cycle times and optimise delivery times and costs in order to carry out our development processes more efficiently."

"With Teamcenter as the single source for all product and process knowledge, Burgmann Industries can optimally manage all product data and use the data across all departments," commented Paul Vogel, senior vice president and managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Siemens PLM Software. "The time employees save can be invested in new, innovative developments and an even higher level of quality."
