Steel and Metal Engineering

How visions become reality

Raiffeisen Lagerhaus Zwettl reg. Gen.m.b.H - With the switch to HiCAD the Raiffeisen Lagerhaus Zwettl reg. Gen.m.b.H. entered the third dimension with its division „locksmithing & portal design”. Since then the company could  not only reduce its design time about 40%, it could also realize projects that would have been hardly possible before.

Metal, Facade and Steel Engineering

Unlimited possibilities in all directions

Fill Metallbau GmbH - For more than one decade Fill Metallbau has been relying on HiCAD which enables the company to realize most complicated designs. One of their multitudinous projects represents the design and the realization of an imposing structure, which was elaborately designed in the shape of a train.

Engineering Services

Cross-sectoral working in custom machine building

PID AG - No matter in what industry you work - the ultimate key to success is an efficient 3-D design engineering process providing a high degree of planning safety while reducing cycle times. Complex projects therefore require a CAD software that allows its users to work across industries and supports the appropriate industry-specific automatisms.

Textile Industry

Engineering in a globalised market

Trützschler GmbH & Co. KG Textilmaschinenfabrik - Complex projects in the field of plant engineering make extremely high demands on the software and hardware used for their realisation. At the textile machinery manufacturer Trützschler, the connection and networking of international locations presents an additional challenge. During these tasks, HiCAD and HELiOS provide the best possible support.

Sheet Metal

High-precision sheet metal processing

Wilvo metaalbewerking bv. - Today sheet metal processing stands for state-of-the-art production technologies and materials. Whereas in former times, housing elements, facade sheets etc. used to be made up of several parts, it is now possible to use complex folded sheets consisting of only one piece. Therefore, 3-D CAD and a consistent process chain have recently become increasingly important.

Sheet Metal

Optimised and consistent process cycles, more time for customers

Suplacon - The Dutch sheet metal processing company Suplacon can handle even the greatest time pressure effortlessly: Thanks to a consistent process chain, many of their production processes could be automated. These time savings do not only enable the company to react to customer wishes immediately and flexibly, but also to use their NC machines to full capacity.

Steel and Metal Engineering

"Under one roof" - Metal and Glass Engineering with HiCAD

Tuchschmidt AG - Modern architecture often uses forms and materials in an experimental, almost playful manner. The combination of elements from various industries poses great challenges to all parties involved, from design to components assembly. The example of a current prestige project realised in Bern, Switzerland, demonstrates how to tackle and master the technical difficulties.

Plant Engineering

Happy customers thanks to 3-D design

Ingenieurbüro Dipl. Ing. Gronow - Especially in the field of plant engineering, complex projects and complicated drawings pose great challenges to the engineers when it comes to clearly outlining the details of project planning to all parties involved. The engineering office Dipl. Ing. Gronow therefore fully relies on the benefits of 3-D design. Experience has shown that 3-D design helps speeding up decisionmaking processes while minimising rework and improving the cooperation with the customer.

Plant Engineering and Conveyor Technique

HELiCON abridges the product development process in conveyor technology

VHV Anlagenbau GmbH - In the field of conveyor technology, a particularly high degree of customisation is required. Plant size, transported materials, spacial limitations - all these are factors that demand a maximum of flexibility to enable a perfect realisation of customerspecific requirements. At the same time, however, many options for component modularisation are available. This difficult balancing act between customisation and standardisation can be easily performed using a so-called "product configurator".

HiCAD and HELiOS in the workplace: Design automation at Kaba Gilgen AG

Kaba Gilgen AG - Even today, many companies still avoid the changeover from 2-D to 3-D design, despite the obvious benefits it offers. The Kaba Gilgen AG in Switzerland, in contrast, has been using 3-D design for almost a decade now and, as a result, managed to increase its productivity considerably. The specialist for innovative drive technologies can look back on a long CAD history. As early as 1992, a 2-D CAD system was implemented which could, however, no longer keep up with the constantly increasing requirements some day. Convinced by the benefits of 3-D design, the KABA Gilgen AG decided to look for a suitable follow-up system.
