Enics invests in Zuken’s CR-8000 software to future-proof electronics manufacturing services
14 July 2015 – Munich, Germany and Westford, MA, USA – Zuken announces that electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider Enics has invested in CR-8000 Design Force, part of Zuken’s next generation product-centric design platform.
Enics chose CR-8000 as part of an ongoing investment program to ensure they can meet their customers’ future technical requirements and further reduce time-to-market. Enics is one of world’s largest EMS providers, working primarily in the energy, industrial automation, transportation, building automation and instrumentation sectors.
Patrik Modig, Site Manager for Enics Västerås says: “We aim to be the partner of choice for Industrial focused OEMs when they are looking for professional EMS solutions. With Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force we have state-of-the-art technology to help us respond to the latest trends in the electronics industry. We also expect to see a remarkable boost in productivity due to a more streamlined process and tighter integration with simulation tools.”
Enics had used Zuken’s CR-5000 single-board PCB design software almost 10 years, during which time they expanded significantly across Europe and Asia. Key factors that prompted their decision to migrate to CR-8000 include:
- Full 3D virtual prototyping to allow early verification of mechanical constraints and perform DFM reviews; vital to meeting increased miniaturization trends.
- Ability to import 3D mechanical models into an ECAD environment allowing 3D verification during the design process and collision prevention in manufactured prototypes.
- Integrated environment for signal integrity, power integrity and electromagnetic interference checking.
Anders Ternström, Senior PCB Design Engineer at Enics, will speak about his experience incorporating CR-8000 Design Force into the Enics design flow at Zuken Innovation World 2015 UK, 30 September 2015, Leicester, UK. For more information and to register, visit: www.zuken.com/ziw-uk
