Dear Sir or Madame,

Mobility is one of the most important topics for the future of our society! Argueably, no other megatrend has revealed such exciting changes within and after the actual crisis. E-mobility and sustainability has gained enormous traction. Therefore the Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) is pushing research for long-life battery cells with Li-Ion-Cells. We are pleased that Software Factory is able to support the ZSW in the project "ZellkoBatt" .
Major changes are also evident in terms of everyday life. Mobile working has almost become the standard for us and determines the Software Factory everyday life. We are fascinated by the possibilities that the future now offers and look forward to keep driving change together with you! Learn more about our current topics in this newsletter!

SF Welding Export for PTC Creo

SF WELDING EXPORT for PTC Creo - Robot-based Welding for Small Batch Sizes

Digitization requires new concepts in development, design and production.
SF WELDING EXPORT for PTC Creo creates a virtual, near-real-time model of the product and welding process with end-to-end digitization of the welding process chain - from development to production. The weld assemblies, the relative position of the parts to each other, the welds used, the geometric weld path and more are analyzed and exported in a WISCON format.Watch our product video on our website to see how offline programming of a welding robot can be completed easily and automatically with SF WELDING EXPORT!

SF INSPECT 3D for PTC Creo - Automatic Capture and Stamping of PMIs in the 3D Model

More and more companies capture, stamp and document their Product & Manufacturing Information (PMI) or Geometric Product Specification (GPS) automatically and directly in the 3D model with SF INSPECT 3D. This information can easily and quickly be used throughout the entire process chain. By eliminating manual activities, error costs are reduced and workload is minimized. Learn more about your benefits and the product on our website!

Future is now!

E-mobility and sustainability are currently important topics for the future. We are very pleased to support the Zentrum für Sonnenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW). The ZSW operates a research production line (FPL) at its Ulm site for the near-series production of large-format Li-Ion Cells. These form the elementary building blocks for long-life battery cells, without which e-mobility is inconceivable. Software Factory has now been commissioned to develop and implement a new production control and line system for the ZSW project „ZellkoBatt“, funded by the BMBF.

Our Latest Research Project: ReDiMon!

Transparent. Up-to-date. Digital.

Together with our research partners and the iwb, we have set ourselves the goal of developing methods for the automated update of digital plant models. The project, called "ReDiMon", is funded by the bayerische Verbundforschungsprogramm. The aim of the project is to automate the collection of data, which will be evaluated using artificial intelligence methods to update existing plant models. The condition of the plant is thus modeled correctly during operation. As a result, downtimes and planning efforts can be minimized.
