In the last two years, there have been many new features and improvements of the different products and components of SEAL Systems. Since the end of May 2021, a new version for conversion has been released – DPF 3.0. Here are the most important innovations and discontinuations.
Authentication is an important component in many EWS applications. Exchange Online supports standard web authentication protocols to ensure the security of communication between your application and the Exchange server. The standard authentication (Basic Auth) provided a basic level of security here, but will soon no longer be supported by Microsoft. The Mail Service of the Digital Process Factory (DPF) from SEAL Systems is affected by this change.
Even today, the price list is still the central element in a company's sales. In this blog post, you will learn how we can support you in the automated creation of price lists and make the price list a universal tool for you and your customers.
As the preferred partner of the international aviation industry, Diehl Aviation stands for highly specialized cabin solutions. The company bundles all aviation activities of the Diehl Group. Among its customers are well-known aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, and Embraer. At Diehl Aviation in Laupheim, customer production documents are stored in the central SAP system and retrieved in the plants using a production information system. This used to be done via a self-programmed SAP interface. After the used production information system had been discontinued at short notice, a new solution had to be found quickly, preferably SAP-integrated. Thanks to SAP Engineering Control Center – SAP ECTR – and a concerted campaign, this was achieved promptly – in less than four months!
Many of our customers are currently thinking about using Google's G Suite - in parallel or as a replacement for MS Office 365. In this context, the conversion of G Suite documents into the neutral format PDF and the archive format PDF/A will also have to be reorganized.
Office documents can be structured in such a way that they do not reveal their entire content immediately. In other words, embedded files can be "hidden" in Office documents. For archiving purposes, embedded files must be backed up to make sure information is not lost - at any time. Unfortunately, archiving Office documents by themselves is not a solution because archiving cannot take place in an application format. The working documents must be converted into a visually identical, standardized, long-term and revision-proof file format. In other words, any information visible in the working document must also be visible in the archived document, including embedded files. PDF/A can meet this requirement.
A Public Insurance company was looking for a new conversion solution with two main requirements: 1. an extension of the existing conversion processes to include other types of digital documents, in particular application formats (about 5,000 files per working day). 2. on-the-fly conversion of TIFF files from the archive to PDF to enable rapid delivery to customers in a customer portal (approximately 1,000 files per business day). With the Digital Process Factory as conversion server, SEAL Systems solved the challenge in no time at all.
3-D content in PDF has been around for many years. In a PDF, the 3-D object standardized file formats are Universal 3-D (U3D) and Product Representation Compact (PRC). Today, Adobe Reader 7.x. PDF can be used to create 3-D PDFs from some CAD systems via export. For other CAD systems, there are third party exports like Tetra4D. With SEAL Systems’ solution, existing interactive exports can be automatically used by our conversion server. Using our solution, 3-D PDFs are generated on the server-side – completely without CAD. SEAL Systems also provides an automatic conversion with our DPF framework with the 3-D PDF generator server from Prostep.
Our Corporate Conversion Server is a powerful conversion engine that automates all file conversion requirements company-wide. Using flexible interfaces, it can be seamlessly integrated into existing IT landscapes. Numerous additional functions round up the scope of services. Conversion servers from SEAL Systems aim at the improvement of optimization potentials in the daily business of medium-sized and large companies. A uniform infrastructure, for example, can create significant cost advantages! In addition, our conversion servers offer new possibilities to easily configure and control processes and structures in order to carry out transactions in this way that were previously not possible in such a process complexity and efficiency.
With the increasing spread of low-cost 3D printers in businesses and in the field of engineering, certain challenges arise in regard to how these devices are managed and operated. Over the past 30 years, these questions were resolved successfully by output-management systems in the 2D sector. So, it is not too far of a stretch to wonder if the same – or at least similar – technology can be used to resolve the challenges to 3D printing as well.
