Weidmüller strengthens long-standing collaboration with Zuken and CADENAS


Shared interface to the two software manufacturers Zuken and CADENAS simplifies the supply of data for the engineering process

Detmold, 21 November 2018. The connection and automation specialist Weidmüller is strengthening its long-standing collaboration with software partners Zuken and CADENAS. The collaboration will focus on the supply of standardised product data. "The collaboration will make it even easier to supply high-quality production information on the basis of the eCl@ss industry standard", explained Gerald Lobermeier who is responsible for Business Development for the “digital product" at Weidmüller. And Joachim Frank, Managing Director of Zuken E3 GmbH stressed that, "We are delighted with Weidmüller's support for the portal. It will enable us to intensify our long-standing collaboration for the benefit of our customers".

Engineering processes today need to be completed with ever-increasing speed, precision and efficiency. This requires the appropriate tools to provide optimum support for the complex planning process. The CADENAS portal is accessed directly from the Zuken CAE Software E3.series. Interested customers can search directly for products of various manufacturers and load the components they need directly into the Zuken CAE tool. "Together with our Weidmüller configurator, this creates enormous advantages, as the connection to the databases and closer collaboration supports the continuous engineering workflow, from planning with E-CAD systems through to documentation", continued Lobermeier.
