Software "PackAssistant" helps experts to pack containers quickly and in the best possible way26.09.2007 - (idw) Fraunhofer-Institut für Algorithmen und Wissenschaftliches Rechnen SCAI
The leading packing software for complex parts developed by the renowned Fraunhofer Research Society in Germany enters the Chinese market on the CeBIT Asia 2007 in Shanghai.
Bonn, Germany / Shanghai, China. The German Fraunhofer Society, world-famous for its music compression method MP3, takes its leading packing solution "PackAssistant" (www.packassistant.com) to the Chinese market. The fast and intuitive software makes best use of container space and saves transportation and storage costs. Developed with and used by the German automotive companies AUDI and BMW, the software improves the packing density of containers by up to 20 %.
Experienced packing planners usually spend a lot of time meticulously arranging and packing parts with complex shapes and still, in most cases, they will not achieve the same packing density as with "PackAssistant". The software calculates the optimal packing arrangement of identical parts in standard containers by using 3Ddesigns (CAD). This also works for parts with complex shapes, as the software will identify and take the individual shape of the object into account.
"PackAssistant" supports different types of packaging: with compartments, without compartments and solid layer pads, with flexible intermediate layers and in stacks, parameters for customer-specific packing solutions and the possibility of selecting the space between parts, container top/bottom, container sides and compartments. Furthermore, the software allows the automatic choice of an appropriate container from a list and the adherence to the maximum load of the container.
Well known customers from the German industry (e.g. Audi AG, Behr, BMW Group, Daimler Chrysler, faurecia) appreciate the following "PackAssistant" features
o Optimal container utilization
o No time-consuming packing tests
o Transport, container and storage planning at an early stage
o Support tool for bids
Explore the benefit of PackAssistant for your company and visit the Fraunhofer Institute SCAI at the CeBIT Asia from 10th until 13th October 2007 (Shanghai New International Expo Centre Hall W5, booth 5E50).
