Attendees will see a demonstration of how they can automate design customization tasks interactively by using TactonWorks and SolidWorks 3D CAD software, leading to improved profit margins.
Stockholm, Sweden – September 10, 2010 – Tacton Systems, a global vendor of sales and product configuration software, announced today that they will demonstrate TactonWorks 4.3 at the SolidLine Launch Events, being held in several German cities October 6th through 28th, 2010. Attendees will witness how TactonWorks and SolidWorks 3D CAD software enable manufacturers to radically reduce customer specific engineering work through the automation of repetitive design customization tasks.
As a SolidWorks Certified Gold Product, TactonWorks is fully embedded within the SolidWorks application/platform. Engineers can therefore define design rules intuitively and concisely. Tacton’s patented product configuration solver engine eliminates the need to translate design rules to sequential calculations. Users are empowered to interactively perform the design customizations in any sequence they want, always seeing the updated model in SolidWorks.
“Recent research shows that leading companies within the Engineer-to-order business can improve profit margins by up to 80% through using design automation and product configuration software. We are therefore proud to deliver this with the same ease-of-use SolidWorks customers around the world are accustomed to”, says Klas Orsvärn, Tacton’s co-founder and Executive Vice President.
“The automation, interactivity and intuitive design rules of TactonWorks allow our customers to radically shorten the time needed to create SolidWorks models, engineering drawings, cost estimates and customer bids.”, says Theodor Huber, CEO of SolidLine AG.
Tacton will showcase the upcoming version of TactonWorks, including advanced control of drawing updates, productivity enhancements, and groundbreaking design automation capabilities to customize systems and layouts of different products in the same assembly. The SolidLine Partner Program features products and services that complement SolidWorks solutions.
“Customers are demanding even more creativity and efficiency from manufacturers, making product design and development even more challenging and putting more pressure on engineers”, says SolidLine Manager of Alliances Gerhard Prieß. “Working directly within the SolidWorks environment to access advanced design automation via TactonWorks, not only increases engineering productivity, but also fuels innovation that helps engineers design better products.”
