MTpro 3.2: New Release of Innovative Planning Software for Assembly and Packaging Applications

MTpro 3.2: New Release of Innovative Planning Software for Assembly and Packaging Applications

(Buchanan, MI – www.boschrexroth-us.com ) MTpro software from Bosch Rexroth Corporation simplifies assembly system planning and application by using 3D solid model and electronic catalog technology to put all required product information within easy reach. The new version, MTpro 3.2, saves OEMs, integrators and end users time and money in the planning, layout and procurement of components and complete modules for assembly and packaging applications.

Compatible with Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit versions), XP and Vista, MTpro 3.2 offers Rexroth’s most complete collection of assembly technologies 3D solid model geometries, exportable into most major design software formats. A new feature in version 2.0 is Layout Designer, a powerful layout design tool that allows “snap-together” design of VarioFlow products into more complex system layouts without the need for an external CAD or 3D layout tool. The Layout Designer software is a separate module, but is included for a 60-day free trial on each MTpro CD. While all other functions of MTpro 2.0 are available free of charge, continuation of Layout Designer beyond the trial period requires a nominal activation fee and registration after the trial period expires.

The integrated product configurator supports users during the selection of technical parameters and directly displays the chosen configuration as a 3-D model. Users can transfer 3-D models and 2-D drawings into their own systems via direct interfaces to all common CAD programs. In addition, MTpro also enables retroactive modifications to components and parts list information in selected CAD systems.

With its simple administrative functions, this new software speeds up the entire procurement process. The user transfers the configured components into an order list using a drag and drop function. This list includes all necessary order information from the part number and additional ordering parameters to component weight and packing units. The software’s user interface can be tailored to individual working styles and can be run directly from the DVD without any installation.

In addition to standard functions such as creating the order lists and exporting 3D/2D CAD geometry, the most important enhancements in MTpro 3.2 include the following:

Layout Designer

- MPS workstation TS5 conveyor products have been added to Layout Designer product offering.

User interface

- The user interface and contents are now available in six languages.

- 3-D models are pre-configured with the settings last used.

Customer address management
