Software Factory News

Dear Sir or Madam,


We have only just finished 2018 and yet we already seem to be well underway with 2019!


What will this year bring? Digitization and Industry 4.0 are the two terms pervading everyday conversations across the world; while the media is reporting lower growth rates compared to previous years. In light of these topics, there has never been a better time to rethink business development and production processes to increase efficiency. We are here to support you with this! Our holistic approaches in systems engineering, our smart extensions for PTC Creo and the successful migration of complex data volumes for Windchill, will all prepare you for more turbulent times.

Better-Faster-Cheaper: Automation and  Optimization of Product development with Creo TOOLKITS


Especially in the time of a skilled worker shortage, fast development cycles and agile product development have to be utilized in order to make the engineering and the development processes smarter. To help this, SF are able to not only automate and optimize your CAD-CAM processes with the Creo Toolkits but we are also able to offer you free tools for Creo.

Navigate on the Shopfloor – Operation without Keyboard or Mouse with the SF ScannerAPP

Our latest extension, SF ScannerAPP for ThingWorx Navigate, replaces your keyboard and mouse on the shop floor with a scanner. By using the scanner, any application can be called up to obtain the desired information about a specific component. The process is significantly faster than its predecessor and is a simple way to use ThingWorx Navigate.

Software Factory at ITQ Makeathon on Gran Canaria

We were there! At the 4th ITQ Makeathon 270 students from 70 universities met in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria two weeks ago. Together with colleagues from the Technikum Wien, a SF team took on a challenge in line with the theme “Smart, green and innovative”. Within 3 days, the young talents developed a robot which collected bottles.

 SF Research Projects


ViWiAC with PTC Creo and Integrity Modeler


The research project ViWiAC, funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), which commenced in 2017 in cooperation with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Institute for Product Development (KIT IPEK), was successfully completed at the end of December last year. As part of the project, a modelling tool was developed that documented the target functions present in the design of the system. For the first time, a directly-linked visualization of the functions and designs on the CAD interface was achieved, considerably simplifying the analysis of the active structures.

Software Factory and Phoenix Integration Seal Partnership

For those who do not know yet: SF and Phoenix Integration are now partners. At the end of last year, we sealed the cooperation with the renowned US company. With the Phoenix Integration Framework Modelcenter, we as a reseller are the perfect complement to the PTC Integrity Modeler. Modelcenter also allows simulations involving external models. Start simulations that are “easy, powerful and flexible”.
