Winder Power Reduces Product Lead Time with DriveWorks Pro

Implementing DriveWorks has enabled Winder Power to offer their customers a reduced product lead time, with a more rigid design process.

Winder Powerspecialises in the design, build, deploymentand management of power transformers and distributiontransformers. They serve a wide range of customers in theutilities, renewable energy, and industrial sectors acrossthe UK and internationally.

Before Implementing DriveWorks

Before using DriveWorks, Winder Power designed to order using SOLIDWORKS, design tables and equation-based parts.

Winder Power began with DriveWorks Solo and thenupgraded to DriveWorks Pro. They have found that themove to DriveWorks Pro has allowed them to merge theirexisting DriveWorks Solo projects together, which hasstreamlined the interface for their users.

We have also taken advantage of the additional functionality available within DriveWorks Pro in order to directly extract information from excel spreadsheets that exist elsewhere in our organization.

Using DriveWorks Automation to Optimize Design Processes

Winder Power is using DriveWorks in their engineering department to generate models and drawings for several components within their design process.

These include:
Full transformer assemblies
Transformer active part clamp systems
Oil conservators
Cooler bank A-Frames
Transformer rating plates

These components are all based on standardised designrules and are either generated complete with the drawingsand assemblies, or partially generated. The partiallygenerated projects are then developed to completion bytheir engineers.

Reducing Design Time

DriveWorks Pro has allowed Winder Power to design components in much shorter time frames, with reduced errors due to the more rigid design process. Therefore, they can offer their customers a reduced product lead time.


Benefitting Across Teams

Merging projects further and adding additionalfunctionality is a continuous process for us now, and Iestimate we add additional functionality at least everycouple of months. We are also currently looking intowhat benefits DriveWorks Pro can offer differentdepartments outside of engineering.
