Startseite > Design Automation

Automate your design processes and free your product developers from time-consuming routine tasks.

With our solutions for design automation, your designers can generate the 2D drawings and 3D models needed to quote and produce customized products fully automatically, directly from the Solidworks 3D CAD system.

Free your designers from expensive, time-consuming and repetitive routine tasks, so they can devote more time to developing and improving your products.

Avoid expensive design errors and minimize the number of time-consuming change orders that obstruct smooth day-to-day operations. By automating your design processes, you can ensure that every draft is always valid and complete. It doesn’t matter how many individual requirements are defined: our constraint-based solution not only ensures that every draft can be fabricated, but also that your customer’s requirements are optimally met.

The simple implementation and maintenance of this solution are a further advantage. It integrates seamlessly in Solidworks and boasts an intuitive user interface. When rolling out new products and upgrading existing ones, you can update your product portfolio rapidly and easily. All other affected areas are updated automatically.

Advantages at a glance

  • Application-oriented product configuration

Design Automation applications

Product Configuration
In product configuration, the configurator mirrors the range of variants in a product line or family. All design-related and commercial parameters are defined on the basis of a product-specific rule set. The entire product know-how is thus compiled in the configurator, which presents it much like an electronic catalog.

Engineering Automation
In the design phase, configuration enables you to generate 3D models, (production) drawings and other documents for any possible product variant in Solidworks with just a click. Design automation thus expands product configuration to enable direct 3D visualization on the basis of a configured Solidworks model.

3D Layout Planning
Today, virtually all layout plans are still generated using 2D CAD systems, even though the individual plant equipment components are designed as 3D objects. This system and medium discontinuity represents an obstacle to end-to-end automation, degrades quality and can result in substantial follow-on costs. Companies have retained 2D-based planning for so long because to date, 3D layouts have generally been complex and time-consuming to generate.

System Integration
The Lino team’s many years of experience and methodological competence have made us a premium technology consultant that can integrate virtually all Tacton and Software Made by Lino® solutions in existing system landscapes (PDM, ERP, CRM, CAM).

BOM Generation
By means of the configurator functionality, Tacton Design Automation controls which parts and modules are to be used to generate the bills of material (BOMs), complete with specification of the variants and quantities. This generates a displayable parts list in the CAD system that can serve as an engineering BOM (EBOM).

Drawing Automation
Drawing Automation generates consistent, configuration-specific drawings at a click, expanding design automation with a key module on the path toward creating end-to-end automated processes.
learn more
Document Generation
When new variants are documented and specified conventionally, texts from existing variants must often be compiled manually and checked against the modified features. In document generation – integrated in product configuration – text, Word, PDF and Excel documents for any variant are generated with a single click.

Simulation
From 3D layout planning directly to virtual commissioning – one-click simulation. Simulation links the virtual with the real world and creates the prerequisite for planning and producing industrial plant equipment.
