To improve the quality of its electrical documents such as wiring diagrams, and to raise its design efficiency, Bruker AXS GmbH Karlsruhe implemented Zuken’s E3.series at all stages. The manufacturer of X-ray analysis systems uses E3.series from concept and production to service.
Control Your Product Quality
Control quality through automation and verification
For some it’s about planned mean time between failure; others need robustness under harsh operating conditions. Or perhaps you need to meet planned characteristics at a given price point. Whatever quality means to your company, we have a solution to support your objectives.
Powerful authoring and analysis tools
Database driven authoring tools that are designed to to work with multiple, manufacturing rule stacks make sure that manufacturing outputs are created to be "correct by design". Integrated analysis tools enable the verification of behavioral aspects such as signal integrity, power integrity or electromagnetic emission.
Controlled design reuse
A proven method of ensuring quality is the reuse of existing designs as 'known good modules'. This requires careful management and tracing of designs and their derivates. Our engineering data management solutions enable accurate tracking and revision managment of components and designs, providing a reliable basis for quality in accelerated design cycles.
PDM, PLM and ERP integration
Our solutions are fully equipped to integrate into existing PDM/PLM and ERP environments,Built on industry-standard, object-oriented architecture, providing a true electromechanical data model with full visibility of electrical and electronic designs down to component level.
Our satisfied customers
Stone Aerospace faced the pressure of a tight schedule in designing a one-of-a-kind underwater autonomous vehicle (AUV). The time needed to design the wiring harness for the AUV was reduced by around 12 weeks and $20,000 was saved by using E3.series to automate many aspects of the design process, while integrating the logical and physical design on a single platform.
ATK was tasked by NASA with designing the wiring harnesses for the booster rockets powering the replacement for the Space Shuttle while employing a team that is significantly smaller than that used on the now-cancelled Ares I project. ATK accomplished its mission by using E3.series to substantially increase productivity, while eliminating the need for a physical mock-up and costly test lab.
Mecalac designs and manufactures heavy plant vehicles for use in construction. Their vehicles – backhoe loaders, site dumpers and compaction rollers – are each offered in several variants. They all need to work in harsh environments.
BCA Leisure designs and manufactures mixed power cable harnesses for almost every UK-based OEM of caravans and motorhomes. The company has been using E3.series for a number of years and recently started using E3.cable, part of Zuken’s E3.series suite, which is now heavily relied upon during the development of 100+ different prototype harnesses each year. This is followed by provision of detailed production drawings to the shop floor.
KRONE, a major brand in the agricultural machinery market, implemented an interdisciplinary product development process. Using Zuken’s E3.series, KRONE linked ECAD, MCAD and ERP to develop an integrated digital engineering and sourcing process, achieving sizable benefits for both sourcing and service. With an integral representation of mechanical and electrical product information, KRONE was able to make solid progress in implementing its major business optimization strategies: Industry 4.0 and Farming 4.0.

In this webinar you will see how Design for Test (DfT) using TestWay from Aster Technologies can be integrated into a CR-8000 design flow to allow users to analyze their design at each stage of the design to delivery workflow, avoiding the traditional problems associated with traditional post-layout testing, prior to transfer of the CAD data to production.
