ACATEC Software GmbH

Cutting lead times

The VDMA has established that the lead time for orders in engineering departments has increased by 35% compared to 2007.

With speedmaxx you can accelerate your order-specific engineering for individual product variants by several orders of magnitude. What used to take you a week now requires just one day. CAD automation makes it possible.

Your benefits: Time-wasting activities in engineering are reduced – you are given time for innovative, proactive and above all creative product development. You can also generate customised products in your 3D CAD systems so much faster thanks to the system’s ease of use. Design engineers and production schedulers are relieved of tedious routine tasks. Your product-specific expertise can be made available at the click of a button independent of any individual.


speedmaxx fields of application

  1. Prior to order placement: the rapid and automatic provision of simplified customised CAD data (assemblies and drawings) for sales staff and customers in product marketing.
  2. Following order placement: the rapid and automatic generation of all required product data (CAD data, bills of material, master data etc.) for order fulfilment.


Generated data

Fully automatically generated data include, for example, 3D parts, 3D assemblies, production drawings, quotation drawings, bills of material, order data, simplified customer models, simplified models for FEM networks and calculations, assembly instructions, NC data etc.

SMS Siemag on speedmaxx

SMS Siemag logo"The creation of production documentation for valve stands has been greatly speeded up and the number of new variants reduced through intelligent, dialog-driven queries.

Where we used to need a week, we now require one day at most.

Automatically generated production documents include valid 3D models and also NC programs that can be used without any verification."

Ralf Kiedrowski, Manager CAD, SMS Siemag AG, Hilchenbach


Aufzugswerke M. Schmitt + Sohn

Logo Aufzugswerke M. Schmitt + Sohn“With speedmaxx Enterprise, ACATEC has enabled us to speed up our order-specific engineering process for elevator cabins by a factor of 5.

The entire production scheduling process has been largely automated using the Navision ERP system and the Autodesk Inventor 3D CAD system.

This guarantees consistent quality for the product documents and bills of material generated for each specific order along with the assemblies, parts, drawings and geometries for laser processing.”

Martin Schmitt, Managing Partner, Aufzugswerke M. Schmitt + Sohn, Nuremberg
