SIG benefits from the integration of the PLM system CIM DATABASE in PARTsolutions by CADENAS

Parts management enables the migration of component data for manufacturers of packaging machines even when the CAD & PLM software environments change

Augsburg, Germany, 15 May 2019. SIG Combibloc GmbH has been using the CADENAS Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions successfully since 2005 for its standard, purchased and repeat parts. In 2019, the leading system and solution provider for aseptic packaging is planning a change of its previous CAD/PLM software environment. The software solution PARTsolutions by CADENAS supports the migration of the SIG parts data, as the engineering data of the numerous catalogs can also be used in the native format of the CAD system SOLIDWORKS. Moreover, PARTsolutions makes possible the management of SIG components within the PLM systems CIM DATABASE by means of deep integration. SIG purchasing, design and standardization has visibility to all business and technical information of the components without having to switch back and forth between their systems.

"We are pleased that SIG has chosen to use PARTsolutions as an integrated standard and purchased parts management system and also for the new CAD/PLM environment," says Markus Poppinghuys of the CADENAS subsidiary in Essen. "The PARTsolutions interfaces to SOLIDWORKS and CIM DATABASE make the creation of standard and purchased parts at SIG Combibloc possible in native CAD format for the components previously used in 3D assemblies. Thus, the migration project is supported by optimum CAD and master data quality."
