Professional Layout Planning Enhances Sales Processes

Due to the rule-based and automated variant configuration, Bystronic Lenhardt was able to halve the project planning time of complex machine lines for glass processing.  

For decades, machine tool and plant equipment manufacturer Bystronic Lenhardt has been an innovation driver in the glass industry. By deploying Tacton Design Automation and Lino® 3D layout, this enterprise is now utilizing the innovative process accelerators of rules-based, automated variant coniguration.

Configuration specialist Lino GmbH has accelerates design and layout processes, minimizes error sources, cuts project planning times for machine production lines in half and creates convincing customer presentations.

For over 50 years, Bystronic Lenhardt has been developing machinery and plant equipment for manufacturing and working glass. Bystronic glass has already been using the 3D CAD solution Solidworks® for some time now to design machines and components. Previously, designers used the 2D CAD software ME10 to lay out overall production systems consisting of linked modules.

Yet Bystronic designs not only individual machines, but also the layout of complete plants consisting of linked modules. One key task of layout planning is to match the complex flows of a machine installation to the conditions of existing plants. With the old applications, it was simply impossible for Sales to present layout changes to end customers with a short turnaround. They lacked an automated variant configuration functionality that could manage all components and their capabilities and make them readily available – ideally right on site!

In researching the market, Bystronic Lenhardt came across Lino GmbH, the vendor of leading-edge software solutions and consulting services for design automation, product configuration, system configuration, 3D CAD and 3D visualization. Its combination of Tacton Design Automation for automated variant configuration and Lino 3D layout for rules-based layout planning was unique.

“I couldn’t find any other vendor that offered such a powerful package. The direct integration in Solidworks was particularly attractive”, the project head explains. As seamless Solidworks add-ins, all solutions have unrestricted access to the data from the PDM – which offered enormous advantages: the designs are always up to date and correct. And conversely, the parameter set of a quotation can be used as a reliable basis for the subsequent design.

Since the rollout, we’ve generated 100% more layout plans than before, and thus doubled our order chances.
