Husqvarna Discovers IronCAD
Therefore, they needed an easy-to-use 3D solution to manage their library of components and assemblies. In 2004, after a long evaluation, they decided to deploy IronCAD because they could kick start their design process with catalogs of predefined shapes that can be easily modified to create working geometry.
IronCAD Throughout The Organisation
Because IronCAD’s Unified Design Environment lets users create multiple parts in a single file, the Husqvarna production team completely eliminated their data management issues. Once imported, the files were easily adapted using specialized IronCAD tools such as handles, which can modify geometry in almost every aspect of the design environment. Other tools include the IronCAD TriBall™, which plays an integral role by enabling positioning of any component or assembly within a 3D scene. Furthermore, the imported 3D geometry can be easily modified in IronCAD without the need of traditional CAD history.
Use of IronCAD at Husqvarna has grown over the years. Multiple departments within Husqvarna have adopted the solution, including the QA lab, which now uses IronCAD for quality control. Even the foundry and manufacturing department use IronCAD to solve layout and production issues.
“We have the great benefit of IronCAD in production at Husqvarna and are quite satisfied with the functionality, training, and support,” said Åke Lindholm, IT Coordinator NORDIC, the Husqvarna Group.
