HW Ventilation Speeding up Design Processes with DriveWorks Solo
HW Ventilation’s design process is 10 times faster with DriveWorks Solo
HW Ventilation, based in Rescaldina Italy is a leading company in the ventilation and air movement systems industry. TheyÂ design, produce and sellÂ axial impellers and ventilators for industrial use. This includes engine cooling systems, compressors, industrial plants and HVAC systems.
Before Implementing DriveWorks
HW Ventilationâ€™s lengthy design process required an engineer to draw every new product or variation of an existing product from scratch inside SOLIDWORKS.
For HW Ventilation, it was important to free their engineers from time consuming, repetitive SOLIDWORKS modelling tasks.
Â Now, they spend a lot less time drawing the same but different designs
Automating the design process with DriveWorks Solo
Automating repetitive modelling tasks has enabled HW VentilationÂ toÂ quickly generate 3D modelsÂ of any type of fan, based on a set of standard variables, such as blade and hub types, fan diameter, material and colour rotation.
The DriveWorks Solo project alsoÂ automatically generates brand new SOLIDWORKS files and manufacturing data, such as bills of materials and 2D drawings, based on each individual form input.
They achieved their target of reducing engineering time spent on repetitive and low value-add activities.
”Our design process using DriveWorks Solo isÂ 10 times fasterÂ than our previous manual process. Our engineers also donâ€™t have to waste time making drawings, and instead canÂ focus their timeÂ on more rewarding projects”
Matteo Morlacci, Engineer & Main DriveWorks Administrator – HW Ventilation
Responding to customer demand
Implementing DriveWorks Solo has enabled HW Ventilation to respond to customer demand faster and with more efficiency. Their customers now receive aÂ drawing of the product they requireÂ almost instantly, andÂ personalised quotes are sent out much quicker.
The future of HW Ventilation using DriveWorks
HW Ventilation are making plans for what’s next with DriveWorks. Matteo Morlacchi says that their next step will be to scale upÂ their current DriveWorks Solo projects to DriveWorks Pro andÂ implement an online configuratorÂ that will enable their customers to configure products online.
