Software integration

Deceuninck Aluminium is now fully integrated with BM Aluminium’s Logikal database.

Fabricators can now set up on Decalu quickly and easily, including full integration with Logikal’s estimation, quotation, CAD design, CNC and production management systems.

This includes the new Decalu163 Lift-and-Slide and Decalu88 aluminium bifolding door, plus Deceuninck Aluminium’s range of casement and tilt-and-turn aluminium windows.

Nigel Headford, Deceuninck Aluminium’s business development director, said: “As part of the Logikal database everything that they need to start fabrication is at the fingertips of fabricators. It’s an instant win, they can move onto Decalu seamlessly, from pricing to manufacture.

“It’s something we’ve been working on during the last couple of months, and it’s come online at exactly the right time, as the market moves forward from lockdown and as fabricators review their supply chains.

“Pre-inserted gaskets, manufacturing efficiencies, dual colour, new panel door options – Decalu is now a very comprehensive and credible system, and our partnership with Logikal now rapidly accelerates our ability to deliver it.”

Dean Hodges, managing director of BM Aluminium, said: “With so many UK fabricators already using LogiKal for their aluminium processing and pricing, having the dataset available from the outset is obviously an essential part of that.

“We worked with the team at Orgadata in Germany, who are the developers of LogiKal, to make sure everything was ready on time, and we’ve made sure that our installations and support team are ready to support fabricators as they get started.”

Existing LogiKal users can add the Decalu dataset via an update. Fabricators who want to start using the system, but who are not yet LogiKal users, can contact BM Aluminium to receive an installation pack and request a remote training session.
