SOCAGE s.r.l. is a leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of aerial work platforms. Based in Italy, the company has played a major role in aerial platform development on a global scale for the last 30 years. SOCAGE markets and sells its products all over the world, and specializes in the production of truck-mounted aerial work platforms. To improve its design process in order to efficiently respond to growing market demands for lighter, more compact aerial work platforms, SOCAGE decided to replace the AutoCAD® 2D design tools it had used with a 3D development platform.
SOCAGE evaluated the Pro/ENGINEER® and SOLIDWORKS® 3D design packages before deciding to standardize on SOLIDWORKS software. The work platform manufacturer chose SOLIDWORKS solutions because they are easy to learn and use, support integrated design simulation, and provided better value for the price. Today, SOCAGE relies on SOLIDWORKS Professional design, SOLIDWORKS Premium design and analysis, SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional analysis, SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM product data management, and SOLIDWORKS Composer technical communication software solutions. By implementing SOLIDWORKS solutions, SOCAGE has shortened its development cycles and time-to-market, increased the number of projects completed each year, cut documentation costs in half, and improved product performance and reliability.
