GKS Packaging, a European company that builds produce-bagging machines for supermarkets, was recently asked to design equipment to pack live sea worms for bait and scientific research. The bags needed to be filled with ocean water and enough oxygen and nutrients for the worms to survive transit for 10-12 days. Needless to say, their regular lettuce-packing machines weren’t going to do the trick.
Machinery designers are problem solvers and you just never know what challenges your customers will throw at you next.
Whether you’re creating new equipment from scratch, upgrading existing equipment or configuring your machines to fit available factory space, it’s not always prudent to keep doing things the way you did them before.
In this eBook, you’ll be introduced to five machinery companies that recently modernized their entire design and manufacturing process with one key decision.
You’ll read insights from:
- GKS Packaging (Vertical Form, Fill and Seal Machines)
- Universal Logic (Artificial Intelligence/Robotics)
- Voxel Innovations (Pulsed Electrochemical Machining)
- Hirebotics (Robotics)
- Absolute Machinery (Injection Molding)
The game changer for all these successful companies was switching to a modern, cloud-based CAD system, enabling their design teams to cast aside old software headaches and focus on doing their best work.
