Enics invests in Zuken’s CR-8000 software to future-proof electronics manufacturing services

Enics logoWESTFORD, Mass. – Zuken announces that electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider Enics has invested in CR-8000 Design Force, part of Zuken’s next generation product-centric design platform.

Enics chose CR-8000 as part of an ongoing investment program to ensure they can meet their customers’ future technical requirements and further reduce time-to-market. Enics is one of world’s largest EMS providers, working primarily in the energy, industrial automation, transportation, building automation and instrumentation sectors.

“We aim to be the partner of choice for Industrial focused OEMs when they are looking for professional EMS solutions. With Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force we have state-of-the-art technology to help us respond to the latest trends in the electronics industry. We also expect to see a remarkable boost in productivity due to a more streamlined process and tighter integration with simulation tools,” said Patrik Modig, Site Manager for Enics Västerås.

Enics had used Zuken’s CR-5000 single-board PCB design software almost 10 years, during which time they expanded significantly across Europe and Asia. Key factors that prompted their decision to migrate to CR-8000 include:

  • Full 3D virtual prototyping to allow early verification of mechanical constraints and perform DFM reviews; vital to meeting increased miniaturization trends.
  • Ability to import 3D mechanical models into an ECAD environment allowing 3D verification during the design process and collision prevention in manufactured prototypes.
  • Integrated environment for signal integrity, power integrity and electromagnetic interference checking.
