Designing Locomotives for Global Markets with PTC Solutions

Last spring South African cargo company Transnet ordered 232 new diesel locomotives for its massive freight-carrying operation from CNR Dalian Locomotive. The new trains would need to be specially designed and equipped with enough muscle to haul freight, but at dimensions suitable for operation alongside South Africa’s existing electronic locomotives. Only a few weeks before, […]

Tooling with PTC Creo: Szimikron Precision Technologies

The ball screw is an old invention that finds new applications with every generation. Engineers specify these deceptively simple mechanical devices anywhere they need efficient linear movement from rotational motion. You’ll find them in CNC machines, anti-lock brake systems, airplanes, and even robots. Compared to other methods for moving loads in a straight line, like […]

Simulation at Work: SmartMetals

Even though our TVs are larger than ever, demand is growing for video walls—those arrays of monitors you see at stadiums, control centers, and airports, looming larger than any human that stands before them. There are a number of advantages to video walls. For example, the monitors can work together to show a large image, […]

Simulation at Work: Benchmade Knife Company

We’ve written about Benchmade Knife Company on this blog in the past. The company uses PTC solutions to design the knives and safety tools that hobbyists, military, and emergency responders rely on in the field. But let’s look a little closer at why a company like Benchmade might use PTC simulation solutions. More Mechanisms From an […]

Simulation at Work: Hensley Industries

Hensley Industries is a perfect candidate for PTC Creo simulation tools. The company specializes in attachments and wear parts for earth-moving equipment, such as that used in mining, construction, trenching, and reclamation. Think about the bucket on an excavator. After scooping up enough rocks, the teeth on the bucket wear down to nubs and have […]

Simulation at Work: GE Healthcare

A little over a week ago, the US Food and Drug Administration gave the green light to GE Healthcare’s new imaging product, the Revolution CT. Like a typical computed tomography scan machine (more commonly called a “CT scan”), the Revolution uses X-rays to capture cross-section images of a body. But now it does it faster, with […]

Jang Lih Speeds Design with PTC Creo to Meet Growing Export Demand

Exports in Taiwan are on the upswing, says last week’s Wall Street Journal. In fact, orders grew nearly 2% compared to March 2013, dramatically exceeding the newspaper’s forecasts of 0.1% for the period. And compared to February of this year, demand for exports grew 30% in March! That’s great news for PTC user Jang Lih. […]

Simulation at Work: American Wave Machines

In some of our recent articles, analysts and industry watchers talk about simulation tools and how they might be used throughout the design process—from concept to validation. While Chad and Monica look at trends and approaches to simulation-driven design, I’d like to tell you a little more about the companies that use PTC simulation tools together […]

Making the Machines That Make the Machines at DMG MORI with PTC Creo

When you talk to Michael Trenkle, mechanical engineer, about his automatic tool changer design, it’s easy to lose yourself in the details.  He’ll tell you about speed and accuracy down to the micron, and about how he ensures his subassembly interfaces with others in this 5000-part 3D model. He’ll describe the challenges of laying out […]

Award-Winning Beer, 200-Year Old Brewery, KHS and PTC Creo

The master brewer at Hirsch Brewery, part of the charming family business in Tuttlingen, Germany, cherishes the old ways–the recipes, the craft, the local spring water, and the carefully selected traditional ingredients. But Thorsten Jauch knows it takes a modern, top-of-the-line packaging system to ensure your Weissbier retains its balanced malty sweetness when you’re ready to […]
