Innovative Packaging Machinery Design
As today’s packaging machines become increasingly complex, designers and engineers face a unique set of mechatronic engineering challenges. Design teams are being asked to streamline communication between mechanical systems and electrical engineering controls like never before.
Learn how SolidWorks® software can help optimize motor and actuator selection for price and energy consumption, while improving reliability so your machines require less maintenance.
|SolidWorks software enables Hartness International to approach the design of its machines - some of which total more than 2,000 parts - through the design of several subassemblies that are brought together as the final machine, according to Dwight Crotty, engineering manager. “We use the collision detection feature in SolidWorks to make sure we don’t have any interference issues. This feature is valuable for us, particularly on the design of some complex mechanisms, because we can simulate how moving parts will fit and interact,” Crotty says. “Using SolidWorks, we have clearly experienced a reduction in design errors, which means fewer modifications need to be made.”|
