Bridge the gap between mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering

With the growing complexity of modern products and machines, it is imperative that all engineering disciplines communicate and coordinate activities early on in the engineering process. Our end-to-end solutions manage libararies, design data and configurations to bridge the traditional gaps between mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering disciplines.

We can help you with

One-stop library and design data

Direct integration of libary and data management functionality into electrical and fluid authoring tools. Role based access to validated data and configurations.

Library, materials and design data management

Ensure the adoption of current, validated libraries, design data and BOM information in complex electro-mechanical projects.

Electromechanical BOM

Cross-disciplinary engineering process support through object-oriented integration into PLM and ERP systems.

Our satisfied customers

E3.series is much more than a single tool for us. Everything we do relies on us having accurate, live data – and that’s what E3.series feeds into virtually all of our processes

Martin PricePurchasing and IT Director, BCA Leisure

Receiving version-proof data from our electrical design team forms the basis of our optimized manufacturing process. Stadler has therefore decided to use DS-E3 for managing its electrical engineering work-in-progress data.

Christoph LeitererHead of Electrical and Software Engineering Tailormade, Stadler Rail 

As the demand for our highly disruptive eye diagnostic and measurement products accelerate, scalability is a priority. A key driver in selecting Zuken's E3.series was the ability to add integrated electronic design and data management solutions as we grow. We compared other systems in the market and found Zuken gave us the flexibility and scalability we were looking for.

Whenever we start a new documentation project now, we simply load the components into the projects, create the connections and generate the BOM – that’s it!

Today, we are in a position to produce detailed cable harness drawings and bill of materials that the supplier can directly use for harness manufacturing.

Krone

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.
