When you’re in the business of creating heavy-duty gearboxes that drive your customers’ operations, you commit to delivering something they can depend on. At least that’s the case with Elecon Engineering, one of the largest gearbox manufacturers in Asia. Elecon supplies mills, naval ships, mines, and power plants. And among its strategies for creating dependable […]
Simulation is one of the great innovations in computer-aided design. Everyone knows that if you can simulate, you can skip prototypes (well, some of them), pass testing faster, and generally create more optimized products. By now simulation is everywhere. Right? We weren’t actually sure about that. We know from previous Aberdeen Research over the years […]
One of the great advantages of PTC Creo Simulate is that it can help you optimize your models as you design in order to achieve a specified goal while respecting specified limits; for example, minimizing the mass of a part without compromising its strength. Traditionally, you would adjust some variables (like a wall thickness), run […]
Kontec GmbH is a design and engineering company located in Saarbrücken, Germany, that has always enjoyed the nimbleness of a close-knit, experienced staff. But sometimes it takes more a talented team to increase productivity and grow a business. That’s why the company recently implemented PTC Creo with PTC Creo simulation technologies. Kontec, which uses the tag line “your engineering partner,” is in the […]

Located in the ancient city of Tarsus, Cumitas strives to blend world-renowned components from global manufacturers with the latest technologies. However, the company’s reliance on AutoCAD, a 2D CAD system, more closely aligned it with the regions reputation for antiquity than the cutting-edge.
No matter your industry, geography, or the size of your team, there are certain design steps that most of us follow—concept design, prototyping, even filing away our data. It only takes a release cycle or two for most of us to realize the value of automating some of these processes. If you’ve ever spent a […]
