Part Planning & Simulation for Equipment Manufacturers

Part manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to improve profitability while also attracting new projects in an industry focused on innovation and sensitive to pricing. With increasing global competition for projects, manufacturers must wring out every last drop of efficiency and productivity. Often digital technology only automates some steps of the manufacturing process, resulting in disconnected processes and interrupted information workflows. Our manufacturing solutions offer a comprehensive set of fully integrated tools for part manufacturing, from CAD/CAM, robotics, CNC machining and CMM inspection, to the latest 3D printing technologies.

Part Planning & Simulation for Equipment Manufacturers

Part manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to improve profitability and win a greater share of contracts in an industry that is innovating rapidly, while also supporting a capital project market that remains under pressure globally.

Increasing complexity in energy equipment assembly combined with the globalization of the supply chain only increases pressure on manufacturers. While some have taken steps to address these issues, it may not be enough. If current digital enterprise strategies only automate some steps in the manufacturing process using independent applications, the results are disconnected processes and inefficient workflows, forcing companies to do more to stay competitive.

Our fully integrated software capabilities seamlessly unite key processes, from engineering through manufacturing, into a digital twin that can be used to simulate, stress and optimize designs before investing in underlying physical assets.

Our integrated systems enable a model-driven process, running from CAD/CAM, CNC machining, right through quality inspection, to deliver a new level of productivity. This enables companies to explore revolutionary technologies, such as additive manufacturing and robotics, to develop next-gen products and systems.
