3D increases design efficiency for water treatment system supplier

ProMinent

ProMinent is a group of companies based in Heidelberg, Germany. For over 55 years, ProMinent has developed and manufactured components and systems for dispensing liquids, as well as solutions for water treatment and water disinfection.

The group’s global success is founded on high-quality products based on decades of engineering expertise, an in-depth understanding of applications and continuous innovation. The group comprises 55 sales, production and service companies, with 12 production sites with 2,400 employees worldwide. ProMinent invests continuously in research and development, and has a high degree of vertical integration at its production sites worldwide.

To transition the company to a systems supplier, ProMinent decided to replace its 2D-based design process to a 3D CAD platform, and standardized on Solid Edge.

Solid Edge helps ProMinent quickly and easily create and manage assemblies, without lags or crashes. The comapny is able to create exact representations of all components—including tubes, pipes, wires, weldments and sheet metal—in a complete digital mockup that allows for more accurate design and analysis. Solid Edge helps them quickly detect and fix clash and interference issues, generate assembly instructions, and conduct customer reviews—reducing the need for costly prototypes.
