Mariani chooses MPDS4 for 2D to 3D packaging line design
The leading food and pharma packaging systems expert is deploying CAD Schroer’s MPDS4 Factory Layout software and the PDC data management environment to flexibly design diverse customer facilities
“We are very pleased to welcome Mariani as a new customer,” says Marco Destefani of CAD Schroer. The Italian packaging systems specialist chose MPDS4 because of the flexibility offered by the software, and CAD Schroer’s engineering expertise.
“MPDS4 was the only package that offered the full variety of tools within a single software suite and the ability to design our own parametric catalog components. It is easy to manage and administrate without any special memory requirements. Finally, CAD Schroer values long-term relationships as much as we do.”

Mariani will import ca. 50,000 existing CAD drawings into MPDS4’s 2D drafting environment through a very accurate DXF/DWG interface. All engineering data will then be managed by CAD Schroer’s data management software. With MPDS4 Factory Layout users can start in 2D with building layouts, then switch to 3D to quickly route conveyors, pipes etc. from the catalogs provided, returning to 2D as required. Individual Mariani 3D machinery models will be incorporated in the layouts via the STEP interface, providing very accurate results.
Marcello Zanella adds, “MPDS4 will allow us to work flexibly in 2D or 3D, based on individual customer requirements and the size of each project.” CAD Schroer’s Marco Destefani concludes, “We thank Mariani for the trust placed in us and look forward to a close technical partnership for years to come.”
