A leader in the design and manufacture of machinery for producing molded plastics, Polivinil s.r.l. has helped customers worldwide create molded plastics for more than 30 years. The company specializes in the development of molds, machinery, and production systems for manufacturing everything from household containers to decorative garden fixtures. The company needed to upgrade its design tools in order to respond to rising demand and increasing competition. The strategy called for the engineering group to migrate from 2D drafting tools to a 3D CAD environment.
Before selecting SolidWorks CAD software, Polivinil conducted an extensive evaluation and analysis of available 3D CAD packages based on ease-of-use, service and support, and solid modeling capabilities -- in particular, the ability to model complex 3D shapes. The move from 2D to 3D design tools has made the engineering group more agile, versatile, and efficient, resulting in reduced costs, shortened design cycles, and faster time-to-market. With SolidWorks CAD software, Polivinil expects to maintain its competitive edge and extend its leadership position as a manufacturer of molded plastics.
