Packaging machinery

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

SOLIDWORKS in the Packaging machinery industry.

The challenge:

In an industry facing time-pressures, packaging and handling machinery producers need to create bespoke machines quickly and easily. Time is money, so you need to make sure your processes are running as efficiently as possible. You need your designs to be right, first time and you need to reduce your time to market and development costs. Then, of course, there are Industry standards and strict regulations to be considered.

The solution:

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

Gerhard Schubert Packaging Solutions choose SOLIDWORKS

Faster, smarter design

Easily produce variations of previous design work from existing 2D drawings and 3D models.

Component library

A large proportion of the content of a typical machine consists of purchased components. The SOLIDWORKS Design Library removes the need to design a wide range of commonly used parts.

Less reworking

SOLIDWORKS validation tools allow you to identify and fix problems before the machine is even built. Save money and time by avoiding costly mistakes.

Get organised

SOLIDWORKS can provide easy links to computer aided manufacture (CAM) and create a bill of materials for assembly and testing. SOLIDWORKS can utilise the 3D assembly model to quickly create project documentation.

Simulate for success

SOLIDWORKS Simulation allows full testing of designs in real world situations to ensure they hold up to the application they are being used for, thereby avoiding field failures.

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
