- Cut development cycle from three years to three months
- Saved $100,000 in prototyping costs
- Reduced material costs by 75 percent
- Enhanced visualization of system performance
Gaumer Process is a world leader in the development of electric process heaters, systems, and controls, which are used in the oil, gas, food-processing, wastewater treatment, and petrochemical industries. To respond to market demands to accelerate system delivery, control costs, reduce energy consumption, and optimize material usage, Gaumer Process decided to evaluate simulation technology.
The company chose SolidWorks Simulation Premium and SolidWorks Flow Simulation software because they are integrated directly inside SolidWorks CAD software, are easier to learn and use, include automated report generation tools, and can simulate the multiphysics involved in electric process heater design. By implementing SolidWorks Simulation tools, Gaumer Process cut its development cycle from three years to three months, saved $100,000 in prototyping costs, reduced material costs by 75 percent, and enhanced its ability to visualize system performance.
