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.

Mechanical and Plant Engineering

A successful changeover to 3-D design

Jöst GmbH + Co. KG - Especially in the fields of mechanical engineering and plant engineering with their complex and highly individual products, the efficiency of the CAD software used is a decisive factor of success. Heterogenous 2-D and 3-D CAD environments often make the design process rather difficult. The German company Jöst, however, has mastered these challenges successfully.
