SolidWorks 3D design software was selected by Holmatro, Inc. for the design and development of their hydraulic lifesaving rescue equipment range.
Holmatro is a global leader in the manufacture of high-pressure hydraulic products for the rescue, marine and industrial equipment markets.
After evaluating 3D design solutions such as Autodesk Inventor, Pro/ENGINEER, Solid Edge and SolidWorks, Holmatro chose SolidWorks 3D design software for their development requirements.
Key advantages listed by Holmatro included ease of learning and application, facilitation of design changes and communications as well as 3D design visuals production.
Holmatro decided to adopt 3D design technology to accelerate time-to-market and improve efficiency in their development process.
The company wanted to develop hydraulic systems for rescue, marine and industrial applications more quickly and cost-effectively.
Key benefits from SolidWorks 3D design software:
- Reduced design adaptation time by 66%
- Cut prototype iterations by 33%
- Reduced UL testing time by 25%
- Introduced a breakthrough product innovation
Eric Marquess, Engineering Manager says that SolidWorks 3D design software enables easy adaptation of a single design to work with 30 different products.
SolidWorks 3D CAD software is available from Intercad in Australia and New Zealand. Intercad also offers training and technical support for SolidWorks.
