Siemens Industry Sector Reports 'Strong Positive Reaction' to Siemens PLM Software NX 5; Announces Major NX Customer Wins Across Key Industries

Success of Launch Enables Siemens PLM Software to Drive Market Share Growth in CAx Segment of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

PLANO, Texas, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of Siemens Industry Sector and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) products and services, today announced that Siemens Industry Sector reported "strong positive reaction" to Siemens PLM Software's new NX(R) software as well as a series of major NX customer implementations across key industries.

In April 2007, Siemens PLM Software introduced NX 5 featuring 400 enhancements. NX 5 software is the next-generation of Siemens PLM Software's NX-brand digital product development software portfolio designed to help companies develop innovative products faster and more cost-efficiently.

"We are very pleased with the strong positive reaction to the breakthroughs in NX's 'Greater Powers' technology," said Tony Affuso, chairman and CEO of Siemens PLM Software. "These enhancements helped us generate strong license revenue growth and gain market share in CAx during 2007 and were key contributors in several of Siemens PLM Software's contract wins since the launch, including those we are announcing today. Our momentum in the CAD/CAM/CAE segment of the PLM industry is now stronger than ever, as evidenced most recently by our announcement that Canon had selected our technology as its universal next-generation product development platform."

"The success of the NX 5 launch, and the subsequent gain in market share, just reinforces Siemens commitment to supporting an expansion of Siemens PLM Software's footprint in the CAx segment of the PLM industry," said Anton Huber CEO, Siemens Division Industry Automation. "The combination of Siemens Industry Sector and Siemens PLM Software will strengthen the requirements placed on our CAx solutions as this technology becomes more broadly integrated into applications that support the greater product lifecycle. As companies evaluate CAx solutions and develop ROI models for such investments, the end benefit is well beyond the traditional modeling features and functions but rather how the CAx portfolio of products can be leveraged across the greater phases of product development."

New and existing customers implement NX

Siemens Industry Sector today announced the following Siemens PLM Software customer wins and implementations for NX 5:

-- Gispen International BV - an office decorator and manufacturer of design furniture that aims for an ideal office environment. "Over the past 10 years, we developed an excellent relationship with Siemens PLM Software," said Marcel van Leusden, project engineer. "During this period, we rolled out several of their solutions, like Teamcenter and NX. We upgraded to NX 5 because of the software's advanced direct modeling and sheet metal features. More than 80 percent of our work is carried out in these areas so in essence, NX 5 is crucial to the success of our business." -- Kennametal - the premier global supplier of tooling solutions, engineered components and advanced materials consumed by customers in industrial markets - has standardized on Siemens PLM Software's NX technology as its global computer-aided design (CAD) platform to increase collaboration and reduce the cost of managing multiple CAD systems. As part of this major licensing agreement, Kennametal will deploy NX to enhance collaboration between global engineering centers and more effectively integrate acquired companies. -- NingBo HeLi Mould Co., Ltd. -- the largest auto engine body cast mold manufacturer in China. "Before choosing our CAD software, we think about three things: functionality, usability and strong CAM integration," said Fan Kaishu, general manager. "NX 5 is strong in each of these areas. No one doubts NX 5's capability in CAD/CAM of course, but we are also impressed with NX 5's usability and flexibility. Our new engineers and our work processes greatly benefit from NX 5." -- CSSC-MES Diesel Co., Ltd. - the largest marine high power diesel engine manufacturer in China. "The new Active Mockup was the key to our selection of NX 5," said Zhang Guanghai, Operation department manager. "We can more easily do our design with NX 5's large scale assembly capabilities. NX 5's strong pre-process CAE functionality is also important to us. As a result, we made NX 5 our design system to do complex ship engine design." -- In-Motion (formerly JiR Engineering) - racing motorcycle manufacturer. "We had already discovered the level of sophistication of Siemens PLM Software's NX 3D CAD system," says Giulio Bernardelle, Engineering technical director. "And now (with NX 5) we have found a software package that we think will be vital to the development of our design activities." -- Kingdream Public Limited Company - the largest manufacturer in Asia for oil well drilling bits and one of the top five worldwide. "The external shapes of our drill bits for drilling are complex," said Tian Hongping, director of Tech-center. "Traditional methods entail extreme difficulties in terms of both structural design and subsequent machining and different software packages are required for different work steps. NX 5 wonderfully meets both requirements by providing CAD/CAM integration that greatly improves the previous means of operation. Thanks to the NX Knowledge Fusion tool, the previous complex external shape design is now significantly simplified. NX 5 excellently meets the process and other engineering requirements while designing the structure." -- Tromosa - a designer and manufacturer of automotive plastic injection molds. "When it comes to design, NX is one of the best products on the market," said Miguel Reboreda Touron R&D Director. "We were looking for integrated CAM functionality as well as the ability to adapt the system to our specific requirements. We consider it paramount to allocate resources to the exploration of the possibilities offered by NX, and to the analysis of the improvements of each new version." Reboreda believes that the reason NX is so well accepted is its user- friendliness and the possibilities it offers. -- Ingenieria de CAD CAM Otazu, S.L - an engineering firm serving the hyrdoelectric and aerospace industries. "We are able to create geometric data easier and faster with the design capabilities in NX 5 design," said Francisco Javier Balsategui, director. "NX 5 CAM has become more aesthetic and well-designed. We have leveraged NX for the past five years. Within this period, we have developed quicker and more reliable processes in higher quality. NX enables us to better meet our customer requirements in many different industries, such as water power, aerospace and producer goods." -- Moldes Barcelona S.A. - manufacturer of plastic injection tools. "Our Technical Department accesses the latest technology from NX to maintain maximum productivity and competitiveness," said Jose Luis Plegezuelos, CAD/CAM manager. "We are satisfied with Siemens PLM Software's inclusion of many of our suggested enhancements in NX 5. The product is faster and more intuitive. Our productivity has progressively increased with each version. NX addresses the unique requirements of the mold market, which is important to us as a tool and die manufacturer. We look forward to each new NX release."

"Siemens PLM Software has reached a major milestone with the release of NX 5," said Ed Miller, president, CIMdata. "With NX 5, Siemens PLM Software has achieved longstanding goals against its previously declared roadmap for NX development and reinforced its commitment to delivering advancements in its core CAD/CAM/CAE technology solutions. The pace of NX sales and adoption by customers appears impressive relative to current market growth rates, and reflects the continuing critical importance of technology advancements in mechanical design automation, particularly in areas such as multi-CAD digital mockup and workflow productivity."

"NX 5 is very impressive," said Jeff Rowe, an independent mechanical design and technical communications consultant. "For a product with this much power, I am impressed with its ease of use. NX 5 has more ability than some of its competitors. I was impressed with how much bang you get for the buck - it is a very affordable product for even small companies. Yet it is comprehensive enough that companies will not outgrow it."
