SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Simulation tools enable collaboration, speed design cycle turnaround, and reduce the need for physical prototypes
As technology continues to evolve, industrial equipment buyers are demanding machines that perform more complex functions than ever before. This demand has forced equipment manufacturers to design and test a wide range of machinery while meeting tight delivery schedules at a minimal cost. Fortunately, companies like Resemin and OMAX have found a solution in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Resemin, a mine drilling equipment manufacturer, has been using SOLIDWORKS to develop products for over 10 years. This has enhanced their capabilities in designing machines and marketing them in a more collaborative environment in the company. Thanks to the lightweight visualization and collaboration capabilities on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, engineering managers at Resemin can review the latest CAD and simulation data to guide improvements and approve final revisions. Engineering Manager Fernando Diaz said, "In that time, we've gone from manufacturing three to four machines a year to more than 130."
Another company that has benefited from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is OMAX, a water jet-cutting machine manufacturer. They use the Structural Performance Engineer role in the 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS portfolio of simulation solutions to enable their engineers to focus more on engineering by automating redundant and unproductive tasks. This allows them to seamlessly collaborate within the fully connected 3DEXPERIENCE environment, significantly increasing productivity, and thereby shrinking design cycles. Key stakeholders at OMAX can easily review structural performance data on a web browser, making the entire process even more efficient.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a comprehensive suite of tools for industrial equipment manufacturers to design, simulate, and collaborate on complex machinery. With the platform's lightweight visualization and collaboration capabilities, engineering managers can quickly review the latest CAD and simulation data to guide improvements and approve final revisions. By automating redundant and unproductive tasks, the Structural Performance Engineer role allows engineers to focus on more important aspects of the design process, ultimately leading to more efficient and cost-effective manufacturing.
In conclusion, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has proven to be a valuable asset for industrial equipment manufacturers seeking to design and test more complex machinery. Companies like Resemin and OMAX have seen a significant increase in productivity and a decrease in design cycles thanks to the platform's lightweight visualization and collaboration capabilities and the Structural Performance Engineer role in the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio of simulation solutions.
