Industrial machinery manufacturers commonly design custom equipment that is configured specifically for individual customers

Many industrial machinery manufacturers increase their value to the customer, and their revenue, through added-value services including installation, servicing, upgrading and supply of consumables

Manufacturers need to adopt efficient product development and order-to-manufacture processes to meet their customers demands for fast delivery of high quality machines

Industry Trends

      • Rising and unstable input costs including raw materials and energy lead to inaccurate cost forecasting and is a threat to contract margin
      • Increased focus on corporate responsibility is leading machinery manufacturers to be more concerned about litigation risk and health and safety
      • Increasing pressure to reduce the operating costs and environmental impact of running their machines
      • Pressure from end users to get higher returns on capital equipment investmentĀ 

Speed up machine design with Solid Edge

The Solid Edge Solution

Rising and input costs including raw materials and energy leads to inaccurate cost forecasting and is a threat to contract margin and business profit

Control rising material costs by optimizing designs using 3D part and assembly modeling for virtual product development, and using integrated analysis tools to save on material costs

Changing attitudes to corporate responsibility is leading machinery manufacturers to be more concerned aboutĀ  litigation risk and health and safety

Ensure compliance with industry regulations by implementing electronic workflows for design changes and release to manufacturing, and by making customer requirements and industry regulations easily accessible to all

Industrial machinery manufacturers are facing increasing pressure to reduce the operating costs and environmental impact of their machines

Reduce running costs of equipment by kinematic analysis of moving parts to improve operation efficiency and enable the correct size motors and actuators to be specified

Pressure from end users to obtain higher returns on capital equipment investment

Manage as-delivered and as-maintained machine configuration to facilitate servicing and upgrading of existing machines
