SANYO MACHINE WORKS Significantly Reduces Validation Time Using DELMIA Solutions



Troy, Michigan (USA), February 27, 2001 – DELMIA Corp., a Dassault Systemes company (NASDAQ: DASTY, Bourse de Paris) announced today that DELMIA/QUEST and DELMIA/UltraSpot were deployed at SANYO MACHINE WORKS, LTD., a leader in design, development and production of automatic assembly and welding line systems. DELMIA/QUEST and DELMIA/UltraSpot have contributed significantly to SANYO MACHINE WORKS’s objective to shorten their design validation time, as well as improving system quality. <br/>



The implementation of DELMIA Solutions provides SANYO MACHINE WORKS the advantage of the best of breed tools to check for the collisions of robots and welding guns, validate tact time, as well as simulate the entire line system before building the actual production line systems ordered by clients. These DELMIA solutions enable SANYO MACHINE WORKS to effectively present attractive system proposals to clients from the very beginning of the concept design stage. Deploying DELMIA solutions at its headquarters in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, and its subsidiaries, SANYO MACHINE AMERICA Corp. and SANYO CANADIAN MACHINE WORKS, Inc. has created a collaborative, advanced engineering environment for worldwide operations.  Sharing of DELMIA’s digital manufacturing data between these three production sites has accelerated the adoption of 3D simulation techniques and engineering collaboration throughout SANYO MACHINE WORKS’s global network. <br/>



SANYO MACHINE WORKS decided to adopt DELMIA solutions to replace their in-house developed 2D and 3D simulation software.  This decision resulted in tremendous efficiencies in terms of manpower, costs and overall productivity. SANYO MACHINE WORKS chose DELMIA solutions due to its user friendliness and easy customization capability using DELMIA’S Graphical Simulation Language (GSL).  The fact that DELMIA is deployed at most of the leading automotive manufacturers worldwide was also a key factor in SANYO MACHINE WORKS’s choice of DELMIA. <br/>



“Our clients include many of the leading automotive manufacturers both in Japan and overseas who continue to demand increased quality, decreased lead time, and reduced costs” explained by Keita Horiba, Director of SANYO MACHINE WORKS.  “Today customers demand that line builders not only deliver production system, but also to submit simulation data and results in virtual environment.  DELMIA Solutions have given SANYO an edge to present our proposals using the latest simulation technology.” <br/>
