Končar-MES Inc. designs and manufactures electric motors, fans, and electrical drives. Based in Croatia and part of the Končar Electrical Industries Group, the company has earned its reputation as a quality supplier of electric motors—including three-phase motors, single-phase motors, brake motors, flameproof motors, and servomotors—over the past 60 years. To support growth, Končar-MES needed to replace its AutoCAD® 2D design tools with a 3D product development system.
Končar-MES evaluated the leading 3D design packages before standardizing on SOLIDWORKS® Professional design software and SOLIDWORKS Simulation analysis software. The company chose SOLIDWORKS solutions because of the intuitiveness of the user interface, complete integration of finite element analysis (FEA) and CAD capabilities within a single modeling environment, and robust design configuration tools. By standardizing on SOLIDWORKS solutions, Končar-MES cut development time by 30 to 40 percent, reduced motor weight by 10 to 20 percent, supported annual business growth of 5 to 15 percent, and launched a new HVAC-focused business.
