B&S Solutions, part of Teagá SA, is a leader in providing end-line automation solutions for various industries. Its diverse portfolio includes case packers, palletizers, flow pack machines, and conveyors, many of which are customized. B&S is five companies under one umbrella—from civil engineering to automation machine manufacturers—that are dedicated to enhancing operational efficiencies through innovative engineering solutions.

One of the biggest challenges B&S has faced is managing complex projects while ensuring every team member can access the latest project information. The need for effective collaboration is vital, as B&S custom-makes 30 to 40% of its equipment to customer specifications, which makes customer approval an integral part of the process.

Using the Right Tools

The company has used SOLIDWORKS® 3D CAD software since 2007 and recently adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. With a geographically dispersed workforce, the platform ensures everybody can access the right information, including the latest design revisions. “3DEXPERIENCE is changing the way we do projects and changing the way we do innovation,” says Business Director Thomas Pinelli.

Adding the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to its SOLIDWORKS implementation has transformed the company’s project management and design processes. The platform facilitates seamless collaboration by allowing easy access to the latest project status. This information integration ensures that all stakeholders can effortlessly interact with B&S development teams, including customers who do not have specialized software such as SOLIDWORKS.
