High-precision manufacturer pursues digitalization with Siemens software.

By Stephanie Aldrete

Siemens’ customer, Armor Meca, modernizes production processes to maintain competitive advantage with Siemens NX, Teamcenter, and SIMATIC IT.

A flagship of the French aeronautical industry, Armor Meca specializes in high-precision machining and subsystem assembly. Founded in 1965, this family business benefits from superior expertise recognized by France’s leading contractors with which it has established trusted relationships for more than 50 years.

The company’s motto is: “Developing a new human, responsible and effective industrial model to meet the challenges of the 21st century.” In order to fulfill this mission, Armor Meca places innovation at the core of its strategy and has been using Siemens Digital Industries Software solutions since 2008 to do so. Armor Meca uses NX CAM and NX CAD to prepare models for computer-aided manufacturing and co-design. NX CAM offers an integrated postprocessing system that directly generates the machine’s ISO code, with-out having to use a third-party postprocessor.

We work from CAM files provided by our customers. We particularly appreciate the interoperability of NX and its highly visual machining simulation features, which are a great help in our daily work.

Armor Meca recently deployed Teamcenter® Manufacturing software to replace its file management system with a database management system. This resulted in smoother communication between the various departments, easier handling of conflicts between the various data versions, and better traceability of changes.

The company will soon deploy Opcenter™ APS software to optimize production line workflows and the loading of raw materials in the storage workshop. The use of NX Machining Knowledge Editor should also serve to standardize and accelerate programming tasks through increased re-use, and thus reduce programming times.
