Market leader for plant solutions

Primetals Technologies is regarded as the world's leading provider of engineering, plant construction and lifecycle services in the metals industry. The company's service portfolio includes holistic solutions for electronics, automation as well as environmental technology. With pioneering technical achievements and great passion, Primetals Technologies constantly strives for innovation for the metals industry.

Longstanding cooperation

Primetals Technologies has been relying on AXAVIAseries for many years. The modular software is used throughout the entire company. Especially the technological leadership compared to competing products convinces the employees of Primetals Technologies. Of particular interest is AXAVIAedb, which is used for the complete project planning and project handling in the course of plant design. The integrated AutoCAD interface and the stored material master from EPLAN facilitate the generation of electrical consumer lists considerably. Also the recording of service calls in terms of efficient issue management is done with AXAVIAseries.

Unique flexibility for plant engineering

As a market leader in plant engineering, Primetals Technologies sees it as its greatest challenge to be able to react quickly and efficiently to different customer needs. For this reason the employees of Primetals Technologies especially appreciate the high flexibility and the manifold possibilities AXAVIAseries offers its users. Especially for plant builders AXAVIA's flexible software tool is ideal to be able to react quickly to customer requirements.

"AXAVIAseries' technological leadership convinced us."

Central availability of data

As a renowned corporation, centrally available data is of great importance for Primetals Technologies. Instead of a hodgepodge of Excel lists, such as individual valve lists, cylinder lists or signal lists, all necessary information can be managed centrally with AXAVIAseries. This means data can also be collected and processed across departments. Mechanics, mechatronics engineers as well as automation technicians therefore always have up-to-date information at their disposal. This not only leads to enormous time savings, but also to a great minimization of errors, since data does not have to be entered and processed multiple times.

Efficient workflows

Not only the central management of data but also efficiently designed workflows ensure low project lead times. Primetals Technologies therefore uses AXAVIAseries throughout the entire project flow - from the mechanic to the mechatronics engineer to the automation engineer. The captured data can then be easily transferred to purchasing and used for procurement. The numerous interfaces, such as to SAP, EPLAN and AutoCAD, also ensure well thought-out workflows.

AXAVIAseries as the ideal solution for plant construction

Primetals Technologies sees AXAVIAseries as an optimal software solution for plant engineers. Especially the flexibility to respond quickly and efficiently to customer needs and the central management of data are great strengths of AXAVIAseries.
