SOLIDWORKS Solutions for Industrial Equipment Industry


Industrial Equipment Design:
SOLIDWORKS integrated product development solutions cover the full range of modelling, simulation, and communication that machine builders need in order to accelerate time-to-market of new machines while reducing costs and ensuring greater safety and reliability. We cover all aspects of product development, offering tools that help you conceptualize, visualize, test, and document your 3D designs.

Challenges faced by Industrial Equipment Industry:
  • Developing derivative products in a cost effective manner.
  • Too much time spent creating, updating and managing engineering drawings.
  • Accurately machining parts without reworking 3D data
  • Aligning manufacturing and assembly with engineering intent
  • Information such as Bill of Materials and drawings must be synchronized
  • Fluctuations in raw material costs adds increased complexity to the bidding process.
  • BOM is automatically generated from design so purchasing list will be accurate.
  • Visualization and management of large assembly designs.

SOLIDWORKS Solutions Proposed :
  • SOLIDWORKS Design tools help ensure that the most complex of designs can be developed with the least amount of effort.
  • Interference checking reduces assembly problems and the need for prototypes.
  • SolidWorks Simulation tools help engineers to ensure that a device’s behaviour will be within design limits, reliable, and avoid thermal or stress-induced failures.
  • Assembly Modelling enables clients to represent and interact with large scale assemblies in real time.Portable data format which can be used to communicate product drawings, capability and aesthetics for company, customers and partners.
  • Ability to show the customer different configurations that support their assembly processes in real time.
  • BOM is automatically generated from design so purchasing list will be accurate.
  • 3D Content Central and Toolbox help save time by providing easy access to the latest 3D vendor components.


Benefits:
  • Greater ability to deliver quality and productivity to OEMS.
  • Design functional and manufacturing design at the same time.
  • Improved design communication and documentation.
  • Shortened prototyping and analysis time, reduced scrap and rework.
  • Shortened time to make design changes by 90%
  • Analysis conducted parallel with development work.
SOLIDWORKS Customer Testimonial:
“In 2D, we wouldn’t have known what we had until we built it. With SOLIDWORKS, we can show the customer different configurations that support their assembly processes.”
