DTC UK deploys PTC Windchill

PTC, the Product Development Company, announced that Diamond Trading Company (DTC) Research Center, based in the UK, has expanded its use of PTC solutions to include Windchill to better manage all product development data, improve change management processes and expand data accessibility across all departments.

Part of the global De Beers Group, DTC designs and manufactures machines for sorting, weighing, authenticating and hallmarking diamonds.

A long-standing Pro/ENGINEER and Pro/INTRALINK customer, DTC needed to expand the capabilities of its existing implementation to make more use of its product development data by sharing it across the enterprise.

The objective was to gain greater control by implementing a single data platform with an auditable workflow driven change management process.

“Pro/INTRALINK was a great tool but we pushed the limits as we could only manage the data for the benefit of our mechanical engineers, but we were not able to use our powerful Pro/ENGINEER 3D product models outside the department,” said Philip Read, Design Office Manager at the DTC Research Centre.

“We wanted to make our valuable product development data available to the rest of the company so we moved from Pro/INTRALINK to Windchill.

Now, whether someone is in manufacturing assembling a product on the shop floor or in electronic engineering working on a PCB, they all have desktop access to the latest information via PTC ProductView as part of the Windchill suite. We are getting a lot more value from of our work now.”
