Article Type: News From: Assembly Automation, Volume 28, Issue 2.

Siemens PLM Software, a division of Siemens Automation and Drives and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, has announced that Kaiserslautern-based Keiper GmbH & Co. KG will be using Tecnomatix® software, Siemens PLM Software's best-in-class digital manufacturing solution, for the digital planning and production of its entire range of products. The international company develops and produces a range of seat components for car makers and their system suppliers, from complete seat structures to reclining and adjusting elements.

Tecnomatix provides Keiper an open systems architecture and flexible digital production solution to enable the company to integrate all of its IT systems companywide. Tecnomatix enables the company to quickly assess production problems and make precise forecasts on the development and production of its seat components. This means that its designers can develop products for easier production from the outset.

“An end-to-end production flow plays a decisive role in profitability of our processes,” said Ramon Loos, Head of Industrial Engineering Process Development at Keiper. “Tecnomatix from Siemens PLM Software allows us not only to ensure the technical maturity of our products early on, but the entire planning process too, thus avoiding unnecessary costs.”

“Tecnomatix helps Keiper speed up its product and process development,” said Paul Vogel, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Siemens PLM Software. “The digital factory planning and simulation technology helps the company bring its products to market faster and helps reduce costly production errors.”
