Stay Flexible!


The perfect basis for flexible PLM
that always adapts to new demands and reacts to acute problems


Nowadays two deciding factors for success for CAD-supported designs are “time is money” and “time to market”. keyetch’s productivity tools accelerate the design process by eliminating some of the time-consuming routine tasks for the user. The resources saved are incorporated into the design process and are reflected in the quality of products as well as in accelerated order processing.


Special CAD functionalities play an important role in developing and maintaining products. Our AddOns provide perspective at this point. keytech makes orientation within the software easier for the user with a clear overview. The links between individual components within a product are easy to recognize and can be taken into account during editing, changes and check-in.


With our AddOns we offer a functional solution when generating new part geometries as well as their reuse. Standard parts from the standard libraries such as CADENAS, VARBOX or the SOLIDWORKS Toolbox are recognized and automatically processed. Configurations in CAD and semi-fninished parts used in assemblies are managed ERP-compliant, drawings and BOMs can be output to different languages on demand.
