Process & Plant

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

SOLIDWORKS in the Process & Plant industry.

The challenge:

In a global economy, building plants and processing systems has become more challenging than ever. Competition is fierce and capital is tight, so the need to control costs, ensure quality, and speed delivery is critical to your success.

The solution:

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software can help you develop, coordinate and deliver on-time and within budget. SOLIDWORKS can help you create visuals that make for solid, information rich proposals. Win bids by effectively communicating design intent and responding to opportunities quickly.

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.

Design libraries

Take advantage of design libraries to use the exact parts that you source from third-party manufacturers.

See it to believe it

Visualise an entire system or plant in 3D to gain the confidence that all systems will work together. discover any clearance or interference issues and where piping, cabling and other utilities like conduit can be run.

Right first time

Validation and simulation tools can help you to avoid design errors that result in costly modifications. Avoid surprises by using simulation tools to test structural loads, fluid flows, temperatures and much more.

Faster, smarter design

SOLIDWORKS can eliminate manual approaches to documentation production. Create engineering drawings, manuals, bills of materials and 3D images/animations with ease.

Save money

SOLIDWORKS can help you control costs by optimising material usage, avoiding mistakes, and gauging operational energy costs.

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: Consul UK

Consul UK chooses SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD for the design and development of a large scale mult-million pound recycling plant; meeting demanding deadlines and addressing complex technical issues.

As the dramatic effects of climate change are being realised and organisations around the world look to reduce the impact of their operations on the environment, it is becoming clear that recycling is one of the best and most effective means of reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions. Recycling also preserves scarce natural resources, saves water and reduces pollution and our dependence on landfill. In addition, design and manufacturing companies must be compliant with the UK’s WEE Directive; which aims to both reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage reuse and recycling.

Customer success story: Meltech Ltd

Meltech Ltd based near Cambridge and Wolverhampton has built a successful business around the design and refurbishment of electric induction heating and melting furnaces for the foundry industry, but the introduction of new European regulations regarding Electromagnetic Field Emissions resulted in a shift for the company to start designing new equipment.
