Shrinking Industrial Food Processing Equipment Design Time
Reading Bakery Systems designs and manufactures equipment for high-volume production of pretzels, cookies and crackers.
They have achieved a 63 percent improvement in design productivity using Solid Edge.
- Products require significant customization and thousands of drawings
- Customer deadlines must be met to avoid costly penalty clauses
- Unmanaged, out-of-date designs can’t be trusted, causing costly redesign work
Keys to Success
- Move from old 2D design process to more productive 3D
- Find an easy-to-use 3D design system with powerful assembly modeling sheet metal design capabilities
- Incorporate design management to guarantee design integrity and share product information outside of engineering
- 3 percent design productivity gain
- Detailed drawing production time reduced from 3.2 to 1.2 hours
- Produced almost three times as many drawings in first year
- About half of all RBS employees (manufacturing, purchasing, sales, CNC shop) can now access current design data
Solid Edge and industrial food processing design
In addition to creating assembly models for engineering purposes, Wood Stone uses Solid Edge designs for marketing and after sales support of its stone-hearth ovens
