Equipois Inc. manufactures the zeroG® line of human-assist arms, which help workers maneuver payloads as if they were weightless, reducing manufacturing-related injuries and production delays. The company’s initial challenge was adapting Garrett Brown’s invention for the Steadicam stabilized motion-picture camera to manufacturing applications.
Equipois chose SolidWorks® Professional design and SolidWorks Premium design and analysis software to address this challenge because of the integrated, easy-to-use simulation environment for initial development as well as the robust design tools for refining, configuring and manufacturing products. By implementing SolidWorks software solutions, Equipois cut the number of prototypes required by 66 percent, made new designers CAD-proficient in 70 percent less time, doubled its revenue annually, and improved the occupational health and safety of workers around the world.
