Cryogenic Equipment and Services (CES), Inc.
- Cut development-through-production time by 50 percent
- Improved manufacturing accuracy
- Maximized material usage
- Enhanced sales with photorealistic renderings
Cryogenic Equipment Services (CES), Inc., is a leading manufacturer of industrial freezing and production chilling equipment, which is used for food processing, pharmaceutical, and metal treatment applications. Until 2007, CES used AutoCAD® 2D design tools to develop its equipment. However, as demand for custom-designed systems, shorter lead times, and greater accuracy grew, so did the company’s need for a 3D development platform. The manufacturer needed more effective large-assembly design and production, and sheet-metal design and fabrication solutions.
CES chose SolidWorks® Professional design software because it’s easy to use, has robust sheet-metal design and fabrication capabilities, and includes advanced design visualization tools. By selecting SolidWorks software, CES cut its development-through-production time by 50 percent, improved manufacturing accuracy, maximized material usage, and enhanced sales with photorealistic renderings.
