Tube cutting with Lantek


September 13, 2013 - Lantek , leader in the development and marketing of CAD/CAM/MES/ERP software solutions for the metal industry, has just become a provider of an affiliate of the Mitsubishi Electric Corporation in Japan. Lantek's distribution agreement with Mitsubishi Electric Mechatronics Software Corporation (MSW) will lead to the development and marketing of advanced tube cutting software. The Basque company opened its office in Japan in 2000 and it currently has a large portfolio of clients, including other “giants” such as Toshiba and Toyota.

“This collaboration reinforces Lantek strategic lines for 2013, since one of our goals for this year is specifically to strengthen our policies in relation to partnerships with other manufacturers for the development and integration of applications. With regard to the Asian market, we want to increase turnover and boost business relating to CAD/CAM/3D solutions. The importance of this agreement also lies in its global reach, thanks to the influence and prestige that our partner has around the world” says Francisco Pérez, Director of OEM Channel at Lantek.  

The interest of the subsidiary of Mitsubishi is focused on the CAD/CAM tube cutting programs that Lantek has developed, specifically the application Lantek Flex3d Tubes, one of the solutions that the Miñano-based company has developed for the design and cutting of steel tubes, with connectivity to all CAD and BIM software on the market. The features of the Lantek Flex3d Tubes program include its multiple tube design options, simulation processes and adaptation to the characteristics of each machine, whether it has three or five axes.

Lantek Flex3d Solutions are at the forefront of technology, since limitations of the machine’s axis rotation are taken into account when machining is carried out.

The agreement has taken its first steps and Mitsubishi’s subsidiary has already validated the first post-processors for the 3-axis tube cutting machines developed by Lantek, taking into consideration the specific technical and business requirements of the Japanese corporation.

Lantek has provided MSW with the program. The Basque multi-national is known for providing global services in 18 languages, support in any time zone, and personal and face-to-face support anywhere in the world where required, another of the competitive advantages that position Lantek as a leader in its field.

Lantek reinforces its presence in Asia  

The agreement with Mitsubishi Electric Mechatronics Software Corporation is a boost for the activity that Lantek has been developing for over a decade in Japan and is part of the growing business of the Basque multi-national in the Asian market. Not surprisingly, Lantek Asia last year accounted for 16% of the company's sales, a percentage expected to increase by 8% this year.

The Asian market also represents 27% of Lantek customers and generates 16% of its overall global sales. By business areas, the CAD/CAM and Solutions division is the area that has generated the largest volume of sales in Asia over the past year. In addition to its office in Japan, Lantek is established in South Korea and China.
