PLANO, Texas, October 13, 2008 – Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that Montblanc, manufacturer of exclusive luxury items such as writing instruments, watches, jewelry and leather goods, selected NX™ CAM, Siemens PLM Software’s computer-aided manufacturing software solution, to further optimize its leading products in regard to technology and craftsmanship.
Montblanc, which has been using Siemens PLM Software’s NX digital product development solution and Teamcenter® digital lifecycle management software portfolio for a number of years, will use NX CAM to enable the direct use of digital product data for NC (numerically controlled) program development and the simulation of production machines. Montblanc’s decision to add the integrated manufacturing component of NX is aimed at making further use of digital product data throughout all processes associated with the product lifecycle.
“NX CAM, with its tight linkage between design and NC programming, will further enhance Montblanc’s PLM implementation. We are convinced that with NX CAM we can reduce programming and production times while further increasing our high standard of quality,” said Kai Jacobs, CAD system administrator at Montblanc.
“Siemens PLM Software looks forward to this opportunity to further our successful relationship with Montblanc into the production phase of the product lifecycle with the NX CAM solution,” said Paul Vogel, executive vice president, Global Sales and Services, Siemens PLM Software. “This results in enormous potential value for Montblanc, such as shorter development times and better data quality.”
