"Spanflug for manufacturers" has been designed to enable CNC manufacturing companies to calculate their quotes for turning and milling parts fully automatically based on a CAD model. The idea is to transform the normally very complex, meticulous process of calculating prices for CNC components into a simple series of mouse clicks - without the need for any manual input or technical expertise. The specialist platform operator for CNC manufacturing Spanflug Technologies has chosen EMO Hannover 2019 to unveil its cloud-based solution for calculating quotes.
Deeming the existing calculation tools on the market often too complex to configure - requiring too much manual input and sometimes even a hefty database - the Munich-based team decided there was clearly room for improvement. To demonstrate there are much easier ways to automatically calculate prices, it developed the Spanflug pricing algorithm for its own online shop, optimizing the process by referencing tens of thousands of turning and milling parts. The company proudly proclaims its tool covers the most comprehensive selection of components on the market, at around 90 percent, and can perform automatic price calculations for a very wide range of technical specifications. What's more, the settings for "Spanflug for manufacturers" - which is otherwise ready for immediate use, without any need for configuration or a database - can be customized, if required, to match specific materials, machine tools and finishes, for example.
