To design a welding machine that could produce larger welded tubes.
IronCAD the Productivity Solution:
IronCAD's ability during the conceptual design to create visual 3D models of the new machine tube guiding system was found to be far superior over the previous method of basic sketching. The excellent three-dimensional views of the TUBESTAR create by IronCAD enabled the engineers to discuss relevant details with mechanics who were involved in assembling the machines but who were unpracticed in reading 2D constructional sketches. Thus, the know how of these people could also be considered for the design process.
- Complex units can be put together without constraints with the aid of the most intuitive tool called the TriBall.
- With the aid of IronCAD, the productivity was increased. The internal and external communication was clearly improved and the time for manufacturing was reduced enormously.
- Thanks to the visual product representation provided by IronCAD enable discussions on the design and functioning of the machine with our customer, which ensured changes in design to be considered at each stage of development.
"IronCAD's innovative design approach allows me design prototype assemblies in the context of a single file without having to deal with cumbersome single part files which is standard in tradition design systems. This architecture allows me to design in the context of the assembly which allows for less errors and better designed components. IronCAD's freedom and ease-of-us allows me to make changes and build components with unprecedented speeds and flexibility." - Mr. Schappacher
