Task Force Tips Inc. (TFT), a leading manufacturer in the global fire industry has standardised on SolidWorks Professional design software and SolidWorks Premium design and analysis software to extend its product range and increase design innovation.

TFT manufactures a comprehensive range of firefighting products designed for effectiveness and safety. Committed to leveraging design technology and computer automation to increase efficiency and create innovation, the firefighting nozzle manufacturer decided to migrate away from the UNIX-based Pro/ENGINEER software to a Windows-based 3D CAD system to design its products.  

TFT standardised on SolidWorks Professional design software and SolidWorks Premium design and analysis software for reasons including ease of use, robust capabilities as well as the integrated design, simulation and visualisation tools.  

Using SolidWorks Professional design software and SolidWorks Premium design and analysis software, Task Force Tips has efficiently doubled its number of products and reduced its design cycles while continually introducing industry innovations.

Key results:  

  • Reduced design cycles by 30% 
  • Doubled number of products 
  • Cut moulded parts cycle by 50% 
  • Improved quality and increased innovation    
Dave Kolacz, Senior Design Engineer at TFT comments that SolidWorks has supported their product line expansion efficiently, helping them save time, develop innovative products, reduce design errors, and work more efficiently with vendors and manufacturing partners.


TFT gained from advantages such as collaboration, implementation, ease of use, design focus, better product design and innovation.    

SolidWorks 3D CAD design software is also available in Australia and New Zealand from Intercad .
