PTC in High Tech: Syncomm Makes Smart TVs Smarter with PTC Creo

It used to be that an “entertainment center” was a heavy oak piece of furniture that took up a wall of the living room. It housed your TV, game consoles, VHS tapes, video player, and maybe the photo albums too. It all seems so primitive in retrospect. Today, a smart TV replaces all of that. […]

Airam and PTC Bring Light Back to a Design Legend

Since 1921, Helsinki’s Airam has been lighting up Finland. The company started out manufacturing bulbs and repairing old broken incandescent lamps (an especially useful service during the resource-scarce war years). Since then, it’s added products to its catalog, including batteries, thermos flasks, and even wire. In the early 1950s, the innovative company wowed the world […]

Deemec Bring Value to Clients with PTC Creo Expertise

While many of the PTC Creo customers we profile in this blog create products for brands, a few make a business out of contracting out engineering services.  These companies are often small, specialized, and more pressured to use whatever design software their clients prefer to work with.

Dyna Empire Masters Titanium with PTC Creo

When a major aerospace company recently designed a new generation of aircraft, engineers looked everywhere for places to save weight, even under the seats. Every little bit matters when you’re trying to build a vehicle that will only “sip” fuel as it carries passengers across the world. The standard braces that support the passenger cabin […]

Profiles in Flexible Modeling: Digi02 Improves Telemedicine & Lives

Often, when people think about telemedicine, they think about conference calls with the doctor. Make an appointment, turn on the computer, and wait for your on-screen chat.

A Blind Rivet for Every Situation with VVG Fasteners and PTC

Alfred Honsel was the kind of a guy who finds a niche and runs with it. During the Great Depression, he launched a business producing pots and pans in Fröndenberg, Germany.  The cookware was probably adequate enough, but that wasn’t what sparked his imagination. Rather, it was the rivets that fixed the handles to the […]

At Home with PTC: From Foam Factory to World-Class Furniture Manufacturer

“These days, Istanbul is no longer just the spot where Europe meets Asia,” writes Conde Nast Traveler. “It is a creative mishmash of civilizations, eras, classes, and ways of life—as if someone had dribbled bits of Berlin and New York and Barcelona onto a seaside Islamic wonderland.” This new era for the ancient city on […]

Breaking Rock, Packing Earth with RamBooms and PTC

At one time, breaking rocks in the hot sun was the stuff of chain gangs. Now, it’s the stuff of hydraulic hammers. From diamond mines to gravel quarries, you’ll find these heavy-duty piston and chisel assemblies working at the end of booms as mine operators make little rocks out of the big rocks. The principle […]

Tooling Tires with PTC Creo: A-Z Formen und Maschinenbau

The engineers who make tires have been improving on the old rubber tube design almost continuously since the late 19th century. They’ve figured out how to make the rubber seal to the rim, so you can still ride on a cushion of air, without bothering with an inner tube. They’ve added layers of nylon and […]

PTC in High Tech: Helping Charm Engineering Fix Big Screens

You’ve probably noticed that flat panel TVs are expanding. Only a few years ago, it seemed like we’d never want for anything more than our 32-inch LCD TVs. Today, they seem a bit puny. Many of us have already put that TV in the guest room, and upscaled to a 50+ incher. And just when […]
