Brayton Energy Canada
- Shortened design cycles
- Improved handling of large assemblies of up to 50,000 parts
- Developed innovations in gas turbine technology
- Cut documentation development time by 25 to 50 percent
Brayton Energy Canada develops innovative energy applications that combine renewable fuels with a gas turbine – the technology used to power jet aircraft engines. When the company began developing environmentally responsible energy technologies, it needed a design platform that would allow engineers to design, analyze, and show innovative gas turbine applications within compressed development cycles.
The company selected SolidWorks Premium software because it is easy to use; has robust large-assembly design tools; offers automated sheet-metal design capabilities; and includes integrated SolidWorks Simulation analysis, SolidWorks Workgroup PDM (product data management), and SolidWorks Composer product documentation applications. By deploying SolidWorks, Brayton Energy shortened its design cycles, improved its handling of large assemblies of up to 50,000 parts, developed innovations in gas turbine technology, and cut documentation development time by 25 to 50 percent.
