Hong Kong, Dec. 11, 2006
3DQuickTools Ltd. today announced the decision of Siemens Turkey to
implement 3DQuickStrip software in their die manufacturing operation
in headquarters located at Kartal, Istanbul. Turkey’s economy grows
at an average of 7 percent a year, making Turkey one of the most
dynamic economies in the world. This growth is supported by a high
level of efficiency. Siemens Turkey is keen to apply the latest
advanced technology like 3DQuickStrip to lead this economic growth.
Siemens Turkey is manufacturing different kinds of electric
components like automatic fuses, thermal relays, contactors,
transformers, and circuit breakers. Their full functional workshop
is equipped with all kinds of CNC metal cutting and processing
machines under a professional team of 45 members. 40% of their
capacity is to develop new tooling projects with the remaining
capacity for the maintenance of existing tooling. In order to cope
with the rapid business growth, the efficiency in the tooling is a
key success factor to the corporation. Mr. Ali DAG, Product
Development & Mould Department Manager, decided to deploy a more
efficient design technology like SolidWorks to his operation two
years ago. Tool designers found the system intuitive to use and
they spent time to achieve better design than carrying out labor
work in conventional CAD drafting. By mid-2006, Mr. Ali started to
evaluate specialized solutions for SolidWorks in metal stamping to
increase their tool design efficiency with a significant amount.
Apart from doing technical evaluation internally, Mr. Ali’s team
cross-checked with the existing Turkish 3DQuickStrip, and
3DQuickPress customers. He got positive feedback from the
users. Siemens’ purchase decision was made after they visited the
largest metal manufacturing exhibition, TATEF, in September, 2006.
With almost all parts in different Siemens’ product lines designed
in 3D, 2D is no longer enough to increase die design speed, nor to
minimize the revision time and design errors. Mr. Ali and his
production specialist, Mr. Ersin Sarica, developed a new work flow
based on the 3DQuickStrip environment. This eliminates the design
fault right at the early stage of the manufacturing design cycle.
A significant cost reduction is achieved. The 3D output of the
strip design can now be accurately communicated with their vendors which
in turn helps Siemens Turkey to improve the overall supply chain
The deployment of 3DQuickStrip in Siemens Turkey is supported by
Umtas A.S. The CAD/CAM/CAE Division of Umtas is a the leading
professional team composed of competent manufacturing consultants in
