Leading electrical measurement equipment company HIOKI E.E. Corporation relies on SolidWorks Premium design and analysis software to support its QCDS program.
Having standardised on SolidWorks software in 1998, the company presently relies on its 32 licenses of SolidWorks Premium design and analysis software to further its QCDS (Quality, Cost, Delivery, and Service) improvement initiative.
HIOKI designers used SolidWorks design and simulation tools to develop the HIOKI Power Analyzer 3390, a world-leading range of power meters.
HIOKI has led the electrical measurement industry for over 75 years, manufacturing a range of automatic test equipment, memory recorders, electrical measurement instruments, and field measurement devices.
Having moved from ME10 2D design tools to Pro/ENGINEER 3D CAD software, the company still needed a 3D design tool that was more affordable and easier to use to achieve its goals, which led them to SolidWorks 3D design software.
Key user benefits of SolidWorks Premium include ease of use and better value with the software providing an integrated set of design visualisation, simulation and communication tools.
The software also offers advantages in collaboration, 2D/3D integration, 2D/3D transition, implementation, data exchange, total cost of ownership, manufacturability, advanced modelling, large assemblies, product-level drawings, automated documentation and design reuse.
Key results for HIOKI from SolidWorks design and simulation software:
- Shortened design cycles by 30%
- Accelerated time-to-market by 30%
- Cut development costs by 30%
- Reduced prototyping cycles by 30%
SolidWorks 3D CAD design software is also available in Australia and New Zealand from Intercad .
