Limiting overwhelming number of parts long-term

As a provider of high tech solutions for automated manufacturing and superfinishing systems, Supfina noted an increase in the number of parts despite their variant management and building blocks for parts.

A classification project in collaboration with simus systems GmbH from Karlsruhe, Germany, helped with data cleaning. Subsequently, the flood of product data was limited effectively by the simus classmate software suite. Apart from an increased efficiency in design, new potential benefits could be implemented in many places in the company.

Supfina Grieshaber GmbH & Co. KG develops, manufactures and distributes systems from metal-cutting superfinishing technology for perfect surfaces world-wide. Approximately 40 projects are implemented in close contact with clients from the automotive, roller bearing and precision industry. A long time ago, the company from Wolfach (Germany) and its 200 employees developed a site in North Kingston (USA) and representation in Beijing (China) as a provider of customized automation solutions including robotics: “It is our goal to optimize our clients’ advantages and to include our experience at an early stage in order to find a solution,” Christoph Siegel, CEO of the solutions provider says. Markus Müller, Head of Mechanical Design (CAD/PDM) at Supfina adds: “I see our main advantages in the fact that we are listening to our clients and can meet their requirements. ”
