Scalable CAD/CAM applications for Prima Power

In this on-demand webinar, Siemens and Prima Power present recent advances in scalable CAD/CAM applications including sheet metal design, assembly environments, and simulation. These features - enabled by the Solid Edge CAD/CAM OEM Software Development Toolkit - are leveraged by Prima Power to optimize productivity and efficiency in multi-machine operations.

Discover what's included in the Solid Edge OEM bundle, why Prima Power chose Siemens as a trusted supplier, and why the Parasolid modeling kernel is central to the success of CAD/CAM OEM applications.

Prima Power: a software ecosystem sharing Siemens’ technology and values

Prima Power has a long history of providing their customers with the best software solutions to optimize the operation of their machines. The ever-updated suite of software products from Prima Power provides a complete set of solutions covering all stages of sheet metal processing, from the connection to customer’s ERP systems, to the finished product and through the collection of production data.

This broad software suite was developed with the support of Siemens and integrates multiple features of the Solid Edge OEM software toolkit. Embedded software capabilities, such as Solid Edge Part, Assembly and Draft environments, and the Solid Edge API, allow the control of the entire production flow as well as monitoring each stage of processing. Prima Power software solutions are all based on a common platform, that benefits from the widely adopted Parasolid modeling kernel The Parasolid modeling engine and file format is openly shared by Siemens to promote data interoperability for the benefit of all design, simulation and manufacturing end-users – a value that Prima Power is keen to support.

Please join us to discover:

  • What is the Solid Edge OEM toolkit and which functionalities are included?
  • How are customers like Prima Power benefiting from the collaboration with Siemens and the integration of Siemens technology into their products?
  • Areas where your own work could benefit from this solution

The discussion will be well suited to the Siemens Digital Industries Software end-user community, as well as CxOs and Product Managers who work for independent software vendors.
