Producing Sheet Metal Fixtures Twice as Fast


Darko, Inc., which designs and produces custom point of purchase displays and fixtures for retail outlets, needed to increase its productivity by simplifying its design process and improving communication between customers and its production department.


Most retail fixtures are composed entirely of sheet metal, which made the IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite’s sheet metal tools critical to Darko’s success.

IRONCAD’s built-in sheet metal features allowed Darko’s designers to manipulate sheet metal geometry efficiently, expediting design time and helping Darko present designs to customers. “Sheet metal pieces fold and unfold with a single click. And I can suppress or re-order parts at will without worrying that the software won’t let me do what I want,” says Jeff Myler, Design Production Director at Darko.

IronCAD’s diverse import and export features also helped the production department simplify communication with customers and other departments, making Darko’s design process more collaborative and increasing productivity.
