Zuken Inc, a Japanese firm specialising in software and consulting services for end-to-end electrical and electronic engineering, is organising a series of roadshows, Zuken Innovation World, in India to showcase its flagship electronic design automation platform, CR-8000 series, as well as the E3.series of products, used in cutting-edge wire-harness design (right across the world). The roadshows will be held in three cities of Bangalore (May 22), Hyderabad (May 23) and Pune (May 25).
India’s increasing profile on the world’s technology stage was confirmed late last month by the release of KPMG’s 2018 Global Technology Innovation Report, which placed the country third on the list of the most promising places for technological breakthroughs in the year ahead.
The country beat all of Europe and Japan, coming behind only the US and China. Furthermore, the Indian city of Bengaluru featured in the top 10 technology hub cities (behind hard-hitters such as Singapore, Seoul and Tokyo from the Asian diaspora).
It comes as no surprise, therefore, that many companies are keen to establish themselves in India to capitalize on the obvious thirst for innovation and ability for disruptive thinking that takes place in the country’s diverse and dynamic business environment.
Among these companies is Zuken, whose products give high-tech manufacturers access to a suite of highly advanced electronic and electromechanical design tools, written and engineered to optimize quality, costs and in-time product development at the cutting edge of technology.
Zuken opened its Indian office in 2015, and the Japanese company is bringing its world-leading capabilities to India, especially in aerospace, defense, engineering and automotive verticals. Zuken’s existing client list reads impressively, with its customers happy to wax lyrical about internal improvements in design methods, increased productivity, and more efficient designs creating even better hardware.
In addition to faster design and development cycles, Zuken’s software features improved data consistency and interchange across organisations. While not always ideal, pockets or islands of knowledge often exist within companies, and better outcomes are created by a collaborative design platform.
Highly sophisticated, technologically-driven hardware and machinery, from electronic components and wearable devices, to the state-of-the-art automotive and aerospace, have all benefited from Zuken’s design platforms.
The E3.series of software is a scalable and easy-to-learn system for the design of wiring and control systems, hydraulics, fluid flows and pneumatics. The solution includes schematic (for circuit and fluid diagrams), cable (for electrical and fluid design), panel (for panel layouts), and formboard (wiring harness manufacturing drawings). The E3.series integrates with MCAD, so is, therefore, a complete engineering solution from concept through to prototype realisation and eventual full manufacturing output.
In electronic design, Zuken’s unified 3D development process (the CR-8000 series) brings multi-board, IC packaging and MCAD together into a single platform. For any product to achieve the vision of its creators, manufacturers need a unified product view encompassing many disciplines. The co-design methodology, proven across the world, leverages the latest design methods to give its users a significant edge on the competition.
From its broad European footprint, Zuken hopes to allow India-based enterprises access to its world-leading tools and advanced toolsets. By employing an overarching product life-cycle management platform, industries as disparate as aerospace to plant design manufacturers (via defense and automotive concerns), can realise the benefits of better products, produced more quickly, at a lower cost.
