Solidtec Solutions offers their support and design solutions, with SolidWorks 3D CAD software, for Access Automation Limited – a New Zealand based company manufacturing in cable cars.
Over the past 18 years, Access Automation has been providing cable cars around the steep hills of Wellington and are soon appearing in Australian cities. Darin Phillips-Brown, General Manager of Access Automation, is very enthusiastic about the growth potential in the Australian and Asian markets.
“We have developed some great inclined lift technology over the years , that allows us to virtually eliminate access problems on many steep and difficult sites.This technology combined with the relatively high Australian dollar and property prices makes us believe that there is huge potential in that market. We are currently looking for Australian companies to market our products there,” says Phillips-Brown.
Assess Automation uses SolidWorks 3D CAD software in their design processes, which can range from rail systems to customised lift cabins. Solidtec Solutions provides Assess Automation the design support, solutions and training needed within the cable car company.
“We use Solidtec Solutions for our SolidWorks technical support and ongoing staff training” says Phillips- Brown.
“Solidtec have been very responsive in providing support, training and local networking meetings. This is important to us as 3D CAD makes up such an important part of our business operation.”
Assess Automation’s cable car solutions has been used at prestigious hotels and resorts around Asia including Ritz Carlton, Bulgari and Pansea.
