Find out how SOLIDWORKS has helped our customers design faster, smarter and stay ahead of the competition.

SOLIDWORKS in the Electronics industry.

The challenge:

The increasingly rapid pace of technology development creates many challenges for manufacturers. To succeed in this competitive environment, innovative products must be developed more quickly, more cost-effectively and at higher Levels of quality.

The solution:

Innova Systems work with a large number of successful companies in the electronics industry who benefit every day using a SOLIDWORKS software solution. Together with the extensive support offered as part of the Innova Systems subscription package, SOLIDWORKS increases sales, improves product quality, design as well as lowering manufacturing costs – Whatever the size of your company.

Aldebaran Robotics choose SOLIDWORKS for success

Collaborate

Traditionally, electrical engineers design the printed circuit board away from the design of its housing with little collaboration. SOLIDWORKS enables collaboration and sharing of compatible design data to quickly create higher quality products.

Simulate

Evaluate heat transfer and cooling systems at any point in the design process. Optimise designs to ensure it survives the frequent drops, impacts and movements that occur in everyday life with dynamics analysis in SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

Responsible design

Sustainability is now a major concern in electronic product design. Evaluate your product with SOLIDWORKS Sustainability to assess the environmental impact of your designs throughout their life cycles.

Routing

Routing of wires, cables etc. no longer needs to be an afterthought. With a 3D routing design tool in SOLIDWORKS you can automate the path selection and positioning of wiring.

Data management

With Solidworks PDM you can manage collaboration, control revisions, track validation data, refine workflows, and coordinate engineering change orders.

It's easy!

After a five day training course with our award-winning technical team, you’ll be up and running and ready to start being more productive with SOLIDWORKS.

Customer success story: Xaar

Cambridge in the UK has become a region of considerable expertise in inkjet printing technology. One such success story is Xaar, a leader in the field of printheads for industrial wide format printers. Xaar was spun out of Cambridge Consultants in 1990 and has since gone on to develop and manufacture a broad range of specialist print-head technologies. Xaar is now a PLC with an impressive commercial performance and an equally impressive Cambridge office and a global presence.

To help it’s engineers address the ever changing challenges in the printhead industry, Xaar invested in SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, which enables their engineers to not only visualise the components that they are developing, but also provide a number of other important engineering benefits critical to their commercial success.

Customer success story: Thermoteknix

Cambridge based technology company, Thermoteknix, has much to celebrate in its 25th Anniversary. Fresh from the Cambridge Evening News Business Excellence awards for Innovation, Thermoteknix has now received the highly prestigious Queens award for Enterprise in the Innovation Category. The Award recognises Thermoteknix for developing the MIRICLE range of high performance, ultra miniature thermal imaging cameras .

Utilising complex electronics and packaging, the camera is used in many moving target or camera applications. The range includes hermetically-sealed units for use in space exploration, hand-held imagers, surveillance cameras, cameras for unmanned vehicles and the world’s first shutter less thermal imaging camera.“Since our introduction of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD four years ago, we have seen many benefits,” said Senior Mechanical Designer, Ben Pemberton.

Customer success story: Comus Europe

Comus is a global manufacturer and supplier of switches and sensors used by electronics companies around the world, with facilities in New Jersey, Belgium, India, Holland, and Essex (UK). Their commitment to delivering solutions to customers has positioned themselves as one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of reed switches, inductive sensors, and pressure switches.

Customer success story: DataPaq

Datapaq Ltd designs and manufactures temperature profiling and analysis systems for use in industrial heat-treating processes. Datapaq has established a worldwide reputation for the quality and reliability of its products, providing customers with systems, which are highly accurate and easy to use.

Mechanical design work was previously carried out using an industry standard 2D CAD package until the migration to SOLIDWORKS.  Following a detailed investigation, SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD was chosen over its competitors, not only for it’s technical superiority, but also because of the professionalism and customer orientated ethos of Innova Systems.
