MOERS, Germany , October 22, 2013 (press release) – The leading food and pharma packaging systems expert is deploying CAD Schroer’s MPDS4 Factory Layout software and the PDC data management environment to flexibly design diverse customer facilities

“We are very pleased to welcome Mariani as a new customer,” says Marco Destefani of CAD Schroer. The Italian packaging systems specialist chose MPDS4 because of the flexibility offered by the software, and CAD Schroer’s engineering expertise.

2D to 3D packaging line design

Packaging machinery and turnkey systems provider Mariani exports its solutions to 45 countries, building turnkey lines for some of the world’s best known brands. Mariani recently purchased CAD Schroer’s MPDS4 Factory Layout Plus package, including the Mechanical Handling catalog for conveyor design. The deal also includes licenses for the PDC engineering content management environment and the 3D Component Designer tool. Mariana has signed a long-term software support and maintenance contract, which includes all software updates and revisions, online and telephone support, and individual guidance.

Parametric Catalog Components

“Flexibility and customer focus are key to our continued growth,” Marcello Zanella, Layout Manager at Mariani. “We chose MPDS4 for three reasons: Firstly, it was the only package that offered the full variety of tools we needed within a single software suite. This includes integrated 2D/3D layout design and the ability to design our own parametric catalog components. Secondly, it is easy to manage and administrate, running on standard hardware without any special memory requirements. Finally, its supplier values long-term relationships as much as we do: CAD Schroer provides the tools and knowledge that allow us to use the software in a way that best suits each customer, and welcomes input into future developments.”

2D or 3D to Suit

Mariani will import ca. 50,000 existing CAD drawings into MPDS4’s 2D drafting environment through a very accurate DXF/DWG interface. All engineering data will then be managed by CAD Schroer’s data management software. With MPDS4 Factory Layout users can start in 2D with building layouts, then switch to 3D to quickly route conveyors, pipes etc. from the catalogs provided, returning to 2D as required. Individual Mariani 3D machinery models will be incorporated in the layouts via the STEP interface, providing very accurate results.

Marcello Zanella adds, “MPDS4 will allow us to work flexibly in 2D or 3D, based on individual customer requirements and the size of each project.” CAD Schroer’s Marco Destefani concludes, “We thank Mariani for the trust placed in us and look forward to a close technical partnership for years to come.”
