Industrial Equipment Solutions

Innovate with design tools and additive manufacturing

SOLIDWORKS Motion Machine

Technology & Process Solutions

SOLIDWORKS product development solutions can help you design complex machinery fast and verify strength, durability, and performance to outpace competitors by creating better products at lower cost.

Our solutions allow Commercial Product designers to:

  • Go from Concept Design to Finshed Product

    Integrated SOLIDWORKS mechanical design, electronic design, electrical schematics, simulation, product data management, Model-Based Design (MBD), inspection, communication, documentation, and visualization output can be used directly for manufacturing.

  • Concurrent Design

    The traditional, step-by-step, non-integrated approach to developing products carries too many limitations that diminish competitiveness. Moving to an iterative approach means you can start manufacturing tasks during the design phase.

     
  • Integrated Development

    With integrated 3D design, you can use data management to update and reuse existing designs, simulation for risk assessment, and costing for estimations that complement quality improvement efforts.

Additive Manufacturing Solutions

3D printing provides manufacturers with prototypingadvanced tooling and production applications. 3D printing solutions are often the difference between turning down potential business and cost-effectively delivering and serving a niche need.

Our additive solutions help Commercial Product designers to:

  • Get to market faster

    Get to market faster than the competition with speedier design cycles. Go from design to prototyping in hours, not days. Blaze through product improvement with rapid prototype revisions

  • Innovate

    Allows commercial product designers to produce any form they can imagine, in real space and time. Then test and revise at will.

  • Simplify Workflow

    Get better results by removing steps and complexity from your workflow. By producing full-scale prototypes straight from CAD design, your design reviews go smoother with hands-on consumer insight that is more informed.

  • 3D Print Jigs and Fixtures

    With 3D printed tooling you can avoid high machining costs for custom tools or parts needed for individual repairs and restorations.

Technology for Industrial Equipment Design

Drive innovation and speed design with SOLIDWORKS software

Today’s challenging commercial product design environment requires manufacturers to automate processes. Upgrading from methods that rely on non-integrated, point solutions in favor of concurrent, fully-integrated 3D design and manufacturing increases quality and adds to your bottom line.

Customer Example

Additive Manufacturing Industrial Equipment Solutions

Advanced materials and techniques for prototyping

Overview

Designers and engineers can skip expensive, time-intensive machining and gain the agility to make changes any time. 3D Printers let you produce concept models, prototypes, tooling and end-use parts directly from CAD data.

Because prototyping needs change as a products design develops from the concept phase to functional testing, many organizations deploy more than one technology by Stratasys. Commercial products manufacturers need the flexibility to make great products in small, medium or large volumes.

 

3D Printing Technologies

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Polyjet are two distinct additive manufacturing methods.

FDM technology is a great solution for low-volume tooling and durable end-use parts. FDM Technology works with production-grade high performance thermoplastics such as Nylon 12, Polycarbonate and Ultem 9085.

PolyJet Technology produces ultra-detailed prototypes, molds and even production parts incorporating smooth rigid, transparent and flexible materials. Multi-material 3D printers produce life like models with a variety of material properties on a single build tray.

Stratasys 3D Printing gets industrial equipment created faster

Create large or small production tools and full-scale prototypes with Stratasys 3D Printers. Industrial equipment designers can maximize productivity and quickly achieve ROI.

With the Objet1000 Plus, designers and engineers can quickly prototype large 3D CAD designs, no matter how complex. There’s no need to scale the model down, prepare and assemble jigsaw-puzzle pieces, or outsource to an assortment of different machines and technologies.

Reduce Costs – Print In-house

Outsourcing your prototypes can take days and cost hundreds of dollars. With a Stratasys 3D Printer you can create the same prototype in just hours – for a fraction of the cost.

Test and Identify Design Problems

In some cases using CAD models alone is not as effective at finding design problems as a 3D printed physical part – you can easily identify a component issue that may have been missed in the initial design stage.

Featured Case Study

Christie Digital mixes 3D printing technologies to optimize products

Because prototyping needs change as a product’s design matures from concept through functional testing, Christie deploys two distinct additive manufacturing methods from Stratasys.

The company serves demanding clients in cinema, large audience environments, 3D and virtual reality, simulation, education, media and government.
