Montblanc Selects Siemens Technology to Reduce Production Time

Montblanc, a manufacturer of luxury items, has selected Siemens PLM Software's NX CAM, a computer-aided manufacturing software solution, to further optimize its products in regard to technology and craftsmanship.

Montblanc, which has been using Siemens'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 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, said Siemens PLM Software.

Kai Jacobs, administrator of CAD system at Montblanc, said: "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."

Paul Vogel, executive vice president of global sales and services at Siemens PLM Software, said: "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. This results in enormous potential value for Montblanc, such as shorter development times and better data quality."
