Headquartered in Laakirchen, Austria, MIBA develops and manufactures bearings, friction materials, sintered components and other products for the international engine and automotive industry. The products are installed in motor vehicles, trains, ships, aircraft and power plants from leading OEMs worldwide. MIBA will in the future be using the portal www.opendesc.com to exchange the CAD models of its products with customers and suppliers and, if necessary, also convert them.
"The combination of secure data exchange and reliable conversion was one of the main reasons why we decided in favor of PROSTEP following a comparison of a number of different providers," explains Martin Strasser, IT Controller & IT Purchasing Manager at MIBA AG. The company attaches great importance to protecting its intellectual property.
