Enics Invests in Zuken’s CR-8000 Software to Future-proof EMS


Reading time ( words)

Electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider Enics has invested in CR-8000 Design Force, part of Zuken’s next generation product-centric design platform.

Enics chose CR-8000 as part of an ongoing investment program to ensure they can meet their customers’ future technical requirements and further reduce time-to-market. Enics is one of world’s largest EMS providers, working primarily in the energy, industrial automation, transportation, building automation and instrumentation sectors.

Patrik Modig, site manager for Enics Västerås says, “We aim to be the partner of choice for Industrial focused OEMs when they are looking for professional EMS solutions. With Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force we have state-of-the-art technology to help us respond to the latest trends in the electronics industry. We also expect to see a remarkable boost in productivity due to a more streamlined process and tighter integration with simulation tools.”

Enics had used Zuken’s CR-5000 single-board PCB design software almost 10 years, during which time they have expanded significantly across Europe and Asia. Key factors that prompted their decision to migrate to CR-8000 include:

  • Full 3D virtual prototyping to allow early verification of mechanical constraints and perform DFM reviews; vital to meeting increased miniaturization trends.
  • Ability to import 3D mechanical models into an ECAD environment allowing 3D verification during the design process and collision prevention in manufactured prototypes.
  • Integrated environment for signal integrity, power integrity and electromagnetic interference checking.

Anders Ternström, Senior PCB Design Engineer at Enics, will speak about his experience incorporating CR-8000 Design Force into the Enics design flow at Zuken Innovation World 2015 UK, 30 September 2015, Leicester, UK. For more information and to register, visit: www.zuken.com/ziw-uk

Nine Dot Connects: Good Design Instruction is a True Value-Add

11/09/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 2

11/13/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Pete Starkey continues with his review of the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit held recently in Munich, Germany. The second day commenced with a new product launch. “Working together is hard” it read on the screen. Statistics indicated that 33% of new products were late getting to market, of which 28% were late due to insufficient collaboration, and up to 50% of potential revenue could be lost through being late to market. Then the screen read “NEXUS makes it easy!”

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 1

11/07/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Altium held a very successful AltiumLive PCB Design Summit in San Diego, California at the beginning of October for the benefit of their North American design community, and followed it three weeks later with a counterpart European event in Munich. And what an eye-opener it proved to be—literally hundreds of delegates, a superbly organised and managed programme, billed as a completely immersive two-day interactive design experience on a theme of learning, connecting and getting inspired.
