The growing trends of the 4th Industrial Revolution – automation, IoT, artificial intelligence, big data analysis, networked communications, machine learning and cloud computing – mark a significant change in the way we work and how we engage with our customers. These emerging technologies are providing advanced and disruptive Industrial Equipment solutions that support the creation, production and delivery of sophisticated and efficient machinery, equipment and components.
Single-function machines are being replaced by all-in-one equipment that covers the entire production process. To win more deals, manufacturers need to propose smarter and more flexible machines
Digitalization is transforming Industrial Equipment and systems and providing manufacturers with the flexibility to deliver connected and customized robotics and 3D printing
New technologies have transformed how power and fluidic equipment is designed by providing increased flexibility, accuracy, analytics and customization capabilities
A machine’s stability and performance depend on the quality of its components. Suppliers need to adapt to the different needs of their customers, while remaining cost effective
The construction, mining and agricultural sectors need robust and efficient heavy mobile equipment that are tailored to the demands of the activity and comply with national regulations
Rising fuel and raw material costs, fierce competition, and stringent safety and environmental regulations are just some of the challenges facing today’s tire manufacturers
When it comes to building equipment, end user comfort and safety are essential. That’s why OEMs pay particular attention to design, compliance and equipment efficiency
CLAAS Tractor in France designs and manufactures tractors for the CLAAS Group, one of the world’s leading agricultural machinery manufacturers. The company, which produces 8,000 tractors per year from its Le Mans factory, needed to effectively handle growing complexity in its machines and optimize its assembly line, which processes a wide range of models simultaneously.
The company is using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform with Concurrent Equipment Engineering for digital continuity across engineering and manufacturing, Single Source for Speed for multidisciplinary collaboration and Ready to Make to digitally plan and drive production with full traceability as part of its mission to modernize its factory. These solutions allow everyone to work from a single data source and manage all design and production processes in 3D.
Since adopting the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we have reduced the number of product redesigns due to process issues
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform was key when the factory was modelled, given that everything related to production, such as lifting and clamping tools, could be validated virtually
