SOLIDWORKS Solutions for Elevators from Concept Design to Manufacturing

Elevator Design using SOLIDWORKS

  • Design of layouts and manufacture components for the elevators in a short time
  • Evaluation of pre assembly motion mechanisms can be done using a 2D block sketches at design stage 
  • Supporting structural members can be developed based on the layout with the defined Cutlist information
  • Design changes based on the spaces and people accommodation will helps to respond the customer quotation as soon as possible
  • Global standard fasteners can be imported directly from the design library and no scratch design is required
  • BOM reports can be generated instantly for procurement team for outsourcing
  • Kinematics of the lift mechanism can be analysed and reported automatically
  • Virtual testing of the lift will eliminate the expensive prototype methodology
  • Dynamic analysis of sudden impact loads can be performed 
Assembly catalogue
Load test simulation
  • Complete package of predefined electrical manufacturer and schematic symbol library to make an agile design
  • Elevator power systems can be designed in a collaborative environment with E-CAD and M-CAD 
  • Manufacture drawings can be released in a more interactive way of digital approach and paperless for the greener environment
  • Aligning of design datum in a single hub and accessing in a structured manner to use and work with updated design
  • Creation of technical communication deliverables for elevators like Part catalogues, on site installation manuals, maintenance manuals, assembly manuals etc..
  • Delivering aesthetic and stylish looks of elevator interiors for marketing and sales to meet the world class visualisation
