HW Ventilation

HW Ventilation benefits from ten times faster design time by using DriveWorks Solo



HW Ventilation

Challenge

Before implementing DriveWorks, theirlengthy design processrequired an engineer to draw every new product or variation of an existing productfrom scratchinside SOLIDWORKS.

Solution

The DriveWorks Solo project alsoautomatically generates brand new SOLIDWORKS files and manufacturing data, such as bills of materials and 2D drawings, based on each individual form input.

Results

Automating this process now enables them to quickly generate 3D modelsof any type of fan, based on a set of standard variables, such as blade and hub types, fan diameter, material and colour rotation.


Our design process using DriveWorks Solo is10 times fasterthan our previous manual process. Our engineers also dont have to waste time making drawings, and instead canfocus their timeon more rewarding projects

Matteo Morlacchi - Engineer, HW Ventilation

Company Overview

HW Ventilation

HW Ventilation, based in Rescaldina Italy is a leading company in the ventilation and air movement systems industry. Theydesign, produce and sellaxial impellers and ventilators for industrial use. This includes engine cooling systems, compressors, industrial plants and HVAC systems.


Challenge

Free engineers from time consuming, repetitive SOLIDWORKS modelling tasks

HW Ventilations lengthy design process required an engineer to draw every new product or variation of an existing product from scratch inside SOLIDWORKS.


Solution

Automating the design process with DriveWorks Solo

Automating repetitive modelling tasks has enabled HW Ventilationto quickly generate 3D modelsof 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 alsoautomatically generates brand new SOLIDWORKS files and manufacturing data, such as bills of materials and 2D drawings, based on each individual form input.


Results

Responding to customer demand

Implementing DriveWorks Solo has enabled HW Ventilation torespond to customer demand faster and with more efficiency, as they now spend a lot less time drawing thesame but different designs.

Their customers now receive adrawing of the product they requirealmost instantly, andpersonalised quotes are sent out much quicker.


Future

Ready for the future with flexible and scalable software

Having achieved their target ofreducing engineering timespent on repetitive and low value-add activities, HW Ventilation are looking to the future of what they can accomplish with DriveWorks.

Matteo Morlacchi says that their next step will be toscale uptheir current DriveWorks Solo projects to DriveWorks Pro andimplement an online configuratorthat will enable their customers to configure products online.
