SpaceClaim, the leader in 3D Direct Modeling solutions for rapid concept design and geometry manipulation, today announced that TRUMPF, a $2.1 billion global manufacturer, has chosen SpaceClaim Engineer to provide 3D Direct Modeling solutions for its customers. TRUMPF is one of the world’s largest producers of sheet metal fabricating equipment and a world market leader in lasers used for industrial production technology.
“TRUMPF machine tools can be found powering a wide variety of sheet metal applications in nearly all industries, from appliances to agricultural machinery,” said Burke Doar, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, TRUMPF, Inc. “After a very thorough evaluation, we found SpaceClaim Engineer’s 3D creation and editing capabilities, and especially its sheet metal features, combined with its fast learning curve and ease of use, to be the best solution for helping our customers manipulate geometry for manufacturing and get their products to market faster.”
The TRUMPF Group has 57 subsidiaries in more than 26 countries with almost 8,000 employees. The TRUMPF Group is a world leader in sheet metal fabrication machinery and industrial lasers with a broad line of machine and power tools for applications that leverage the affordability and flexibility of sheet metal.
“We are honored to have been selected by TRUMPF as its next-generation 3D modeling application,” said Chris Randles, SpaceClaim President and CEO. “TRUMPF is a leader in machine tool manufacturing, and globally, the TRUMPF name is associated with fast and flexible sheet-metal processing, high-quality engineering, and outstanding technology. SpaceClaim’s modern design, ease-of use, powerful modeling capabilities and CAD-neutral approach make it ideally suited to helping improve productivity and time-to-market in the manufacturing sector, where the cost and overhead of traditional CAD systems has limited the broad adoption of 3D. Innovations in machine tool design — aimed at increasing flexibility and throughput, control of multiple axes, or optimizing operation — demand innovations in 3D software. SpaceClaim is delighted to be working with TRUMPF to bring accessible, but powerful 3D modeling to its customers.”
SpaceClaim recently announced the sixth release of its software, SpaceClaim 2010. The Company has broadened the use of 3D as a business tool for engineers engaged in new business development and early concept development. Throughout the supply chain, manufacturers are improving how they do business by leveraging SpaceClaim in bid modeling, concept modeling, CAE model preparation and rapid prototyping for manufacturing.
