ZW3D CAD/CAM Helps Feist Co. Beat the Supply Chain Clock

GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 9, 2012 — Suppliers to the automotive industry are required to be reliable and excel in the standards of quality, price and delivery. The ten-person German company, Feist Modell und Formenbau works in the development of prototypes, utilizing the integrated 3D CAD/CAM software, ZW3D. The perfect working condition that ZW3D provides, with native interface support, enables 5-axis simultaneous milling that optimizes competitiveness and sustainability. It does all of this with an excellent price to performance ratio.

" ZW3D has rapidly improved all of our business," recalls Peter Feist, CEO of Feist Modell und Formenbau. "Compared to our old system, it’s much easier and faster. The transition to ZW3D went very smoothly. Because it is an easy to learn system, the training cost was kept low and even newcomers delivered results quickly.”

Feist Modell und Formenbau, located in Oberpframmern, Germany, is a small but highly professional company that specializes in manufacturing regionally based automotive prototypes from raw materials as well as pilot run samples. In addition, this ten-employee private company produces components for design and function tests.

ZW3D CAD/CAM ensures that the performance of the company will be top notch. As part of a complex supply chain, Feist relies heavily on seamless communication with others, such as the development department of an auto manufacturer who sends a complete 3D model of an engine to clients, or the calculation providers who carry out the acoustic and thermal analytics. ZW3D provides its services reliably. Interfaces for importing from all major CAD systems and for export to neutral formats, such as Step or IGES, are included in the standard package of software. "We will always work with external data. Independence and flexibility are very important to us and ZW3D enables us to preserve these," says Peter.

Besides handling external communication, the system which covers the entire internal process chain is the focus. The company always has two or three parallel projects, and about 150 types of different sizes of products can be produced through a year. To ensure high quality of the production within the given time limit, it requires the employee to be responsible for the constructive and mechanical work, such as the CAD design and NC programming. The industry-leading integrated CAD/CAM feature of ZW3D 2012 offers perfect consistency. In particular, the critical transfer of NC programs on the machine via integrated post-processors of ZW3D is accomplished flawlessly.

Besides the great functional features, there’s another advantage in ZW3D, the regional support. The authorized ZW3D distributor in Germany, Encee, provides Feist access to competent, practical training, rapid response, short distances and a free hotline, which has been an appreciated added value.
