Spanflug Technologies GmbH operates a manufacturing platform for CNC turning and milling parts. Spanflug offers its customers a fully automated procurement process, including everything from price calculation to an online shop for orders. The CNC parts are manufactured exclusively by qualified suppliers in Germany and Austria. Spanflug also offers its calculation software Spanflug Make to CNC manufacturing companies as a cloud-based software-as-a-service solution. The companies can use this to automate their quoting process. Spanflug’s goal is to make the complex procurement process as fast and simple as possible for customers and suppliers – pushing forward digitalization within the manufacturing industry. The company is a spin-off from the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). It took part in the Xpreneurs incubator program of the “UnternehmerTUM” start-up network. Spanflug is supported by the Initiative for Industrial Innovators. Since 2020 the VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association) is a shareholder of Spanflug. More information under spanflug.de/en.
Simply upload a CAD model and optionally a technical drawing. All features relevant for manufacturing (e.g. tolerances, fittings and threads) are automatically detected and considered in the calculation. You can check the data and adjust it if necessary. In the next step you only need to select the material and the quantity and will receive a calculation proposal with one click. You can find more than 50 pre-defined materials and more than 20 post-treatments in our database.
Within seconds you will receive a calculation proposal with a detailed breakdown of the estimated costs e.g. for material, programming, setup and manufacturing.
You can add the calculated part to a quote and export it as csv for further processing e.g. in your ERP-System.
To adapt the calculation to your machine shop, you can adjust settings such as:
- material prices
- setup time
- programming time
- overhead costs
You can either start immediately with the Spanflug machine tools that are available by default or set up your own machine tools to achieve an optimal result for your operation. You can set up your own turning, milling and grinding machines.
