Leading manufacturer of cutting tools and wear parts, CERATIZIT, implements Windchill to improve data management and project collaboration with a single data platform.
PTC, the Product Development Company announced that CERATIZIT (Luxemburg), a leading supplier of innovative hard material products and tools for the automotive, aerospace, railway and metal forming industries, has expanded its deployment of the PTC Product Development System to include Windchill PDMLink for data and process management and Windchill ProjectLink for collaboration and project management.
Together with existing use of Pri/ENGINEER for product design, Windchill now enables CERATIZIT to improve internal and external project collaboration with their customers and distributed manufacturing sites as well as increase design reuse within its large product portfolio.
The initial focus of the deployment is on linking Windchill PDMLink to SAP to allow the seamless sharing of information. At the same time the company will optimize its methodology for digital model definition to help improve the productivity of its design engineers. Over time, CERATIZIT plans to extend the use of the Product Development System across geographic boundaries to other European offices.
