Customized implementation of Siemens NX

WEFOMA Werkzeug- und Formenbau GmbH,

specialized in the development and production of die casting moulds as well as punching and forming tools.

Duration of project: March - December 2018

Moments of success

Ensuring competitiveness, increasing efficiency and quality in design:

  • optimal and flawless technical integration of NX – methods and template development, customized to the requirements of Wefoma
  • fast integration of NX into the product operation through specific training concepts and follow-up support for NX users
  • Know-how enhancement in method development: the Wefoma experts are able to identify further optimization potentials, implement them on their own or have them implemented by third parties.

Feynsinn provided us with excellent support in the Catia V5 environment in the past. That is why we asked Feynsinn to support us in the implementation of NX. Once again, the Feynsinn experts convinced us with their solid know-how. The people from Feynsinn managed excellently to implement our specific NX requirements – both in the technical introduction, programming of individual Wefoma templates, method development and qualification of our users. Awesome! We fully recommend Feynsinn.   –    Frank Leipner, Design Manager, Wefoma Werkzeug- und Formenbau GmbH

Task

Customer-specific consulting, technical introduction and establishment of Siemens NX including employee qualification to ensure competitiveness, increase quality and efficiency in design.

Challenge, Approach, Goal

Wefoma operates in a highly competitive environment with many market participants. In order to optimize and maintain cooperation with customers, the management and design department decided to introduce the CA software Siemens NX in addition to Catia V5. In addition to the excellent implementation of NX, the focus remained on the sustainable optimization of the development environment.Feynsinn assisted Wefoma from the selection of the NX licenses to the training of the employees.

5 essential steps at a glance:

    1. Consulting on the selection of the packaging of NX licenses appropriate for Wefoma
    2. Technical implementation of Siemens NX for best use
    3. Method and template development individually tailored to Wefoma for customer-specific use:
  • Analysis of the existing processes, test of transferability to NX, adaptation of adequate procedures and optimization
  • Integration of proven NX methods and special modules, such as “DIE-Engineering” and “DIE-Validation”, adapted and optimized for Wefoma
    1. Design of NX training courses, individually adapted to Wefoma requirements
    2. Employee qualification through
  • NX trainings in the field of tool and mould construction with customer-specific context on solid and surface construction
  • Building up knowledge in Daimler methodology and extending general methodological knowledge
  • Providing comprehensive NX training documents with functional description and detailed project-related examples

The stepwise introduction and sustainable optimization of the development environment through the creation of synergies between individual methods, well considered processes and the use of adequate tools ensured a high level of acceptance and rapid application in the operative business. In addition, the CAD post-support of the users within the scope of the all-in-one contract Feynsinn Flex* enabled a smooth start and fast integration into the product operation.
