Majenta PLM has signed a £1m contract with Lincoln-based Napier Turbochargers for the supply, implementation and ongoing support of a product design and lifecycle management (PLM) solution based on Siemens PLM Software’s NX and Teamcenter software suites.
As a result of the agreement, Napier’s future large axial turbocharger product design and engineering requirements will be undertaken using multiple licenses of NX 3D solid modelling software, including advanced sheet metal design capabilities, while NX advanced finite element modelling (FEM) software will provide pre- and post-processing of 3D CAD models for engineering analysis.
A number of licenses of Siemens PLM Software’s Solid Edge Drafting software will also be provided as a replacement for existing seats of a 2D drafting system.
Data management, including change management and shop floor product data viewing facilities, will be provided through Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter Express software suite while a number of licenses of the Teamcenter visualisation application will provide digital mock-up (DMU) and advanced design visualisation facilities. Teamcenter will also provide Napier with the ability to use legacy design information from other CAD software products.
The first phase of the PLM system implementation schedule was completed at the end of August, with additional user training and ongoing technical support following on from that.
