Packaging specialist Theegarten-Pactec: End-to-end processes with CIM Database PLM
Theegarten-Pactec GmbH & Co. KG is a leading manufacturer of packaging systems in the food and non-food sectors. The company now uses CIM Database PLM from CONTACT Software in the development of new machines and during order processes. The aim is to respond even more flexibly to increasing customer and market requirements in the future, to launch product innovations on the market faster and to ensure company-wide know-how in the long term
The continuous demand for individual packaging solutions, the increasing focus on the topic of sustainability and the growing variety of product variants pose major challenges for manufacturers of packaging systems. In order to react quickly and flexibly to new requirements in the future, Theegarten-Pactec has opted for CONTACT Software
The family-owned company headquartered in Dresden is a leading global manufacturer in the field of packaging technology and an innovative system supplier for upstream and downstream processes. Around 400 employees develop and produce high-quality and intelligent packaging machines for small-sized confectionery, other food and non-food products.
With CIM Database PLM, the company ensures smooth interaction of its systems, processes and employees along the entire value chain from product development to service, maintenance and retrofits of plants in the field. In the future, a valid multi-CAD data management and the integration of existing IT systems and business applications will ensure a consistent view of the data for all stakeholders.
This enables Theegarten-Pactec to implement customer-specific adaptations more quickly and anticipate market requirements. In addition, the company increases the quality of product development, significantly reduces its times and costs, and at the same time shortens the order throughput time.
In the course of a partnership, Theegarten-Pactec and CONTACT are developing a joint solution for documenting all relevant machine-related information that arises during the entire lifetime of a packaging system. With the so-called production file, information on requirements, parts lists, 2D and 3D visualizations, spare parts catalogs, documents and change processes are transparently stored for each packaging system at any time throughout the entire life cycle.
The main focus was on a more efficient management of product-related documentation. The smooth interaction of the individual application modules convinced HBC. With CIM Database, all users now have access to the same valid project planning data, technical changes and quality details. This reduces errors, saves costs and empowers the global service team. At the same time, the integrated project management solution improves cooperation between the individual departments and provides comprehensive support for the company's processes.
"With the Elements platform and CIM Database, CONTACT Software provides us with the methodical and systemic basis for further increasing our competitiveness and profitability in a fast-moving and dynamic competitive market. With its know-how, experience and product portfolio, CONTACT is definitely a long-term partner for us," says Dr. Dirk H. Winter, Project Manager at Theegarten-Pactec.
