For more than 60 years, Anderson Dahlen, Inc., has provided high-quality, specialized metal fabrication services for processing food, beverages, dairy products, and pharmaceuticals. These processing systems must be corrosion-resistant and sanitary, which is why they’re fabricated from stainless steel and specialty alloys.
Anderson Dahlen adopted 3D design in 1999. In 2007, management decided to implement a product data management (PDM) system to achieve productivity gains in manufacturing, choosing the SolidWorks® Enterprise PDM system because of the its robust user interface, utilization of an SQL database, full integration with SolidWorks CAD software, and easy configuration. By implementing SolidWorks Enterprise PDM, Anderson Dahlen shortened design time by 10 to 15 percent, cut rework by 5 to 10 percent, reduced errors by 10 percent, and increased throughput by 10 to 12 percent.
