Sescoi software used by winners and finalists in the 2009 Excellence in Production competition
The 2009 Excellence in Production competition, organized by the German Fraunhofer IPT Institute for Manufacturing Technology, WZL - RWTH Aachen University and Aachner Werkzeug und Formenbau, is a prestigious event which celebrates the technical expertise of German tool and die makers.
311 toolmakers participated in the 2009 competition, and each received a thorough evaluation of its business from a team of respected judges from within the industry. Congratulating the successful companies, Sescoi found that, including the overall winner, seven of the nine winners and finalists in the four categories of the competition were using its WorkNC CAD/CAM software, its WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP system or its MyWorkPLAN job management software.
Summerer Technologies GmbH & Co KG, based in Rosenheim, uses WorkNC and was declared the overall winner and ‘Toolmaker of the Year 2009’ as well as winner in its own category, “External Toolmaking with less than 100 employees”. The judges highlighted its business development strategy, its technological skills, and its investment program in CNC milling.
The other Sescoi users are Gerresheimer Wilden Werkzeug und Automatisierungstechnik.GmbH, winner of the “Internal Toolmaking” category for companies with under 100 employees, as are Gedia Gerbrűder Dingerkus GmbH and MR Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen GmbH, finalists in the same category. Gerresheimer Wilden, which makes injection molds for medical applications, was praised for its levels of customer and employee satisfaction, which are supported through its technical competence center and its individual training plans.
For the “External Toolmaking” category for companies with over 100 people, the winner, Siebenwurst Modell und Formenbau GmbH & Co KG, uses WorkNC as do the finalist and runner up, Hofmann Modellbau GmbH and Werkzeugbau Siegfried Hofmann GmbH. Hofmann Modellbau GmbH also uses WorkPLAN Enterprise for its business and production management.
Used by six of the nine winners and finalists, WorkNC V20 is the latest version of Sescoi’s world class CAD/CAM system and now includes automated 3+2 axis programming in addition to its ground breaking Auto 5 automatic 5-axis programming. This new functionality increases the utilization and efficiency of older and larger machine tools, enabling them to finish more of the part in one setting. The new version also includes support for conical cutters which will help engineers to use higher feedrates and improve the quality of the machined surface.
Both WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP and MyWorkPLAN job management systems are now SAP® certified, enabling the packages to dynamically exchange data with one another, further increasing the scope of the software for larger companies. The specialized quotation, sales management, and production scheduling and management tools inside Sescoi’s systems give toolmakers access to key information in real time, enabling them to make well considered decisions based on accurate data.
By providing its customers with technically advanced, easy to use software, Sescoi makes a significant contribution to the success of its clients and is proud to be associated with so many winners and finalists in the 2009 Excellence in Production awards.
