As a worldwide partner of all major OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, SumiRiko AVS Germany operates in global networks. The company produces at 12 locations worldwide and maintains 4 regional development departments in Germany, France, Russia and China.

At SumiRiko AVS Germany, the exchange of engineering data with customers, development partners and suppliers is no longer limited to pure CAx data, but also includes a wide range of productdefining information. With complex products and processes and a worldwide organisation, the global player is dependent on a secure and transparent solution for the exchange of engineering (CAD/CAx) and product data. SumiRiko AVS Germany therefore relies on the SEEBURGER EPX service in the cloud. The company uses the service as a flexible solution for connecting an unlimited number of OEM and engineering partners directly or via its own ENGDAT/OFTP system and for the fast and secure exchange of business-critical engineering (CAD/CAx) and product data with partners and customers.

Global engineering (CAD/CAx) & product data exchange at SumiRiko AVS

The solution enables SumiRiko AVS to facilitate project-based cooperation between its own employees and the specialist departments of engineering partners by sharing common directories (Share & Subscribe). The solution is used to control ad-hoc data exchange between users by assigning appropriate upload and download rights, and to send and receive VDA ENGDAT messages via OFTP2 via TCP/IP with the clients or ENGPART messages with the engineering partners. SumiRiko AVS also uses the solution company-wide (internal/ external) for the exchange of product descriptive data. It offers departments transparency in data exchange and supports them in the management of their engineering projects by providing monitoring and administration functions.

The EPX Cloud Service makes our engineering and product data exchange processes more flexible, secure and agile. It improves cooperation with our engineering partners.
