A $1 million contract has been struck by Majenta PLM to supply Napier Turbochargers Ltd. with product design, simulation and data management software.
As a result, the firm, which manufactures turbochargers for diesel and heavy fuel engines from its base in Lincoln, will be using Siemens PLM software. Solid Edge drafting software and multiple licenses of NX 3D solid modeling software, including advanced sheet metal design and advanced finite element modeling software for 3D CAD model engineering analysis are included in the deal.
In addition, the firm, famous for its series of land, water and air speed world records in its early years, will be using NX computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software for turning and for mill-turn and multi-axis milling will be available for Napier’s future large axial turbocharger product design and engineering projects.
“The PLM solution that Majenta PLM is supplying and is helping us to implement will help to ensure that the right product information is at the right place at the right time,” said Andy Thacker, managing director, Napier Turbochargers Limited. “I am pleased that the business has been acquired by a shareholder that is committed to investing further in R&D to maintain its technology and in the expansion of the business to meet customer demand.”
