CIDEON Conify ECAD Connection

Nuremberg/Gräfelfing/Monheim, Germany, 14 November 2023 – Product configurators are already being used by numerous machine builders. As of today, the configured machines must often be “re-imagined” in the engineering department each and every time. CIDEON Conify changes this completely since engineering and construction can be included within the automation process. At the SPS trade fair, a new ECAD connection to Conify is being presented that also includes the EPLAN electrical engineering platform, considerably simplifying engineering for customer-specific orders.

Rittal, Eplan, Cideon and GEC at Hannover Messe 2023

Herborn/Monheim/Gräfelfing/Limburg, 14 March 2023 – “The digital transformation of factories, a secure and economically viable long-term energy supply, and the establishing, measuring and reduction of industrial products’ carbon footprints are major challenges that cannot be solved in isolation,” says Markus Asch, CEO of Rittal International and Rittal Software Systems: “Innovation that goes beyond products and solutions is needed. We need to understand the various processes surrounding our customers’ value chains, consider new ecosystems and develop overarching solutions. We are convinced that this is only possible via standardisation. The Hanover Fair is the forum for industry-wide dialogue on this subject.”

Consistent CAD data in product configuration

Gräfelfing, Germany, 20 February 2023 – Interdisciplinary configuration in mechanical and plant engineering is becoming increasingly important to meet customer demand for individualized products at reasonable costs. It requires a high level of automation combined with close integration of all processes including order engineering. In large sectors of the industry, however, this is not yet standard practice for configurable products with engineering elements.
