JL Marine Systems, Inc.
- Shortened design cycles by 40 to 50 percent
- Cut prototyping costs by 50 to 60 percent
- Reduced design change time from three days to five hours
- Sustained annual, ongoing growth
JL Marine Systems, Inc. manufactures the Power-Pole shallow water anchor, which more than 90 percent of the world’s best tournament anglers use to maneuver their boats into position to make the perfect cast. To sustain growth, the company needed to leverage 3D design, simulation, and visualization technologies.
JL Marine Systems chose SolidWorks Premium software because it is easy to use, includes integrated simulation tools, and provides enhanced visualization capabilities. The company added SolidWorks Enterprise PDM product data management and 3DVIA Composer technical communications solutions in 2010. By selecting SolidWorks solutions, JL Marine Systems has shortened its design cycles by 40 to 50 percent, cut prototyping costs by 50 to 60 percent, reduced design change time from three days to five hours, and sustained its 20 percent annual growth rate.
