Endress+Hauser is a global leader in measurement instrumentation, services and solutions for industrial process engineering.
Renishaw Gets Better Fit and Impedance Control for Complex Flexible PCBs in Metrology Instruments using CR-8000
Working in 3D for the first time, Renishaw’s PCB designers noticed a host of benefits, including fixing housing fit issues upfront and easier component placement.
Rohde & Schwarz manages variants with increased efficiency using Zuken’s CR-5000 suite. In a sophisticated design flow, the schematic provides a master data set that drives all PCB assembly variants.
ARBURG is one of the world‘s leading manufacturers of injection molding machines.
KRONE, a major brand in the agricultural machinery market, implemented an interdisciplinary product development process. Using Zuken’s E3.series they linked ECAD, MCAD and ERP to develop an integrated digital engineering and sourcing process, achieving sizable benefits for both sourcing and service. With an integral representation of mechanical and electrical product information, KRONE was able to make solid progress in implementing its major business optimization strategies: Industry 4.0 and Farming 4.0.

Specialist fire rescue and emergency vehicle manufacturer, Emergency One UK Ltd, uses E³.series software for its electrical harness design.
Bruker Raises Documentation Quality and Design Flow Efficiency for Precision Instrumentation with E3.series
To improve the quality of its electrical documents such as wiring diagrams,and to raise its design efficiency, Bruker AXS GmbH Karlsruhe implemented Zuken’s E3.series at all stages.
ATK was tasked by NASA with designing the wiring harnesses for the booster rockets powering the replacement for the Space Shuttle while employing a team that is significantly smaller than that used on the now-cancelled Ares I project.
ARM Automation designs, builds and supports custom automated manufacturing systems for a wide range of industries.
After acquiring various companies around the globe in the 1990s, Alstom needed to integrate these new elements into its international corporate structure in a meaningful way.
BCA Leisure Stays Responsive and Competitive using E3.series to Design and Manufacture Cable Harnesses for Caravans and Motorhomes
Through close integration with the company’s ERP and by sharing live data, E3.series is enabling BCA Leisure to remain extremely competitive. This despite customers all requiring harnesses around the same time of year, and a supply chain complicated by long lead-time items, material shortages and fluctuating currencies.
Pantec Automation Cuts Machine Manufacturing Turnaround Time by Around 50%, Reduces Product Costs, and Helps Protect IP for Its Customers using E3.series
When Pantec Automation’s customers faced pressure from low-cost counterfeit machinery, they realised the best way to fight back was to help customers reduce their own costs. Through wholesale efficiency improvements achieved by expanding its use of Zuken’s E3.series and integrating it into its ERP/PPS, Pantec Automation enabled its customers to better serve end-users.
Kellenberger cuts time taken to generate customer-specific schematics by up to 90% by implementing options and variants in E3.series
The Swiss-based manufacturer recently introduced Zuken’s E3.series to automate the generation of schematics for customer-specific machine configurations, cutting the time taken by more than 90%.
BAE Systems is a global company engaged in the development, delivery and support of advanced defence and aerospace systems in the air, on land and at sea.
Malvern Instruments Enhances Data Collaboration Between ECAD and MCAD and Improves Manufacturing Data with CADSTAR Board Modeler Lite
As electronics engineers we often perceive the electronics design encapsulated in the PCB assembly to be the core of the product. At Malvern Instruments, however, that is not the case as their advanced instruments are primarily mechanical in nature so the electronics forms a critical, but secondary, element of the finished product.
Raymarine are introducing CADSTAR at both their UK headquarters in Portsmouth and in their US design centre at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA.
Tews Significantly Reduces Development Time and Cost of Complex High-speed PCBs using Concurrent Power Integrity Simulation
TEWS Technologies encountered challenges around power distribution on PCBs for their embedded interface modules, due to today’s increasingly complex designs.
