Oasis Trailers Use DriveWorksXpress to Save Time & Focus on Important Tasks

Using DriveWorksXpress has enabled Oasis Trailers to work 4 times faster

Oasis Trailer Mfg Ltdhas been manufacturing custom trailers in Rolling Hills, Canada since 2006.

Before Implementing DriveWorks

Oasis Trailers create a specification form for each of their products individually. Before DriveWorksXpress this would be 20 minutes of repetitive work.

Using DriveWorksXpress, they have cut this time down to just 5 minutes at most.

Oasis Trailers builds mostly custom trailersand focus oncustom welding. Draftsman, Jake Loewen has been using DriveWorksXpress for over a year and has implemented the software to create correct manufacturing drawings for the axles. He tells us how they have been using DriveWorksXpress to speed up their design process.

One Simple Form Creates an Automated Design Process

Using DriveWorksXpress, Oasis Trailers have createda simple formwhere they enter three inputs. These inputsautomate the requirementsfor the Hub Face, the Spring Center and the Wheel Options of the axles.

Oasis Trailers have also taken advantage of the different form building options in DriveWorksXpress, using both the drop-down and spin button feature.

Each time a new specification is entered on the form,DriveWorksXpress works in the background to calculate the rules and drive the SOLIDWORKS model.

When setting up the projects, Jake took advantage of the free DriveWorksXpress resources, such as the DriveWorksXpressTraining and Certificationand the DriveWorksXpressGetting Started Webinarto advance his knowledge of the software.


Working Efficiently

One of the ways Oasis Trailers have increased efficiency is by storing all of their rules within DriveWorksXpress, so their engineers don’t need to remember them all.
