Outsourcing the operations of an industrial company is a skill in its own right. Success requires a lot, not only from the company itself but also from the selected outsourcing partner and the employees transferring to a new employer. When pitfalls are avoided and the process is well-planned and executed in a controlled manner, outsourcing benefits all parties involved.

Danfoss Drives (Vacon)

When a company’s goal is to manufacture the world’s best AC drives, also the guidelines related to the equipment must be implemented in the best possible way. Vacon (now Danfoss Drives) decided to outsource its technical documentation to Etteplan and benefit from the company’s new HyperSTE and HyperDoc tools. The results have also won over Danfoss Drives’ customers. 

Black & Decker Tooling

Black & Decker is a global marketer and manufacturer of quality products used in and around the home and publishes approx. 100 new manuals each year in up to 24 languages.

Etteplan created all Black & Decker manuals applying XML structure to minimize translation cost and time-to-market while optimizing consistency and facilitating version management. As a result, the amount of re-use has been 90% or better, which resulted in cost savings of up to 90% on translations. Furthermore, the time to market was decreased by 80%.

GEA Food Solutions

Operational challenges such as variety and flexibility, cost per kg/pack, food safety and environment, are the basis of GEA Food Solutions to improve the output and reduce the operating cost of food processors.

Etteplan helped GEA Food Solutions by applying structure and language quality (STE) to its documentation, which resulted in:

Finavia

A massive modernization project is underway at Helsinki-Vantaa airport. In large investment projects, it is paramount that the engineers can work with up-to-date baseline data. Finavia chose Etteplan as its partner to make the technical documentation process even more reliable.

Philips – Healthtech & Lighting

Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands is a diversified Health and Well-being company, focused on improving people’s lives through timely innovations. As a world leader in Healthcare, Lifestyle and Lighting, Philips integrates technologies and design into people-centric solutions, based on fundamental customer insights and the brand promise of “innovation and you”.

 

Renovating testing environment with Procket Rapid

Embedded system is a combination of both hardware and software, the testing and development of which calls also for other things than just software and the device itself. It is often necessary to measure the signals of the device, simulate the input signals or otherwise control the device from the outside during its testing. Without an appropriate testing environment, testing a device becomes slow, laborious and unreliable.

Toroidion super car: a challenge for power electronics

Toroidion electric car’s release in Monaco 2015 attracted huge international attention. Its promised power of 1 megawatt, or over 1 300 hp, ferocious acceleration and operational range of 500 km left the experts' jaws open. The father of the car idea, Pasi Pennanen, has made a long career in design tasks with cars like the Formulas, Jaguar, Aston Martin and Honda. Pennanen needed experienced experts for every component to design the technology of the car.

Choose your IoT platform with care

“IoT platform” can mean many different things. It usually refers to an IoT application platform, in other words a software platform that collects data from various sensors and IoT devices. The collected data can then be analyzed and used in various applications. Such platforms are usually in the cloud.

Embedded AC drive

Alternating current (AC) motors have over a century of history. During the last decades, they have dominated the market for motor drives used in industrial and consumer applications. But in the case of variable speed drives, there were some areas where DC motors were the only option for quite long, especially when torque control or a high dynamic control was required. This is now changing as the availability of compact and effective hardware solutions lets vector control expand to cost-sensitive areas like home appliances and consumer electronics.
