3D CAD SOLIDWORKS Case Study Thermofisher

Case Study – ThermoFisher Scientific (Barnant)

The Challenge
Barnant is a worldwide paristaltic pump company that designs and manufactures pumps and controllers for many companies in industries ranging from medical products to water filtration systems. The design team had been using Pro/ENGINEER but found it to be an expensive program to keep and difficult to learn.

The Solution
The company evaluated several CAD packages including Solid Edge but chose SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software for its ease of use and short learning curve. With SOLIDWORKS, one package provides all the design tools needed to lay out, design, detail, and animate your design. We also liked the fact that many companies are using SOLIDWORKS software.

SOLIDWORKS is known worldwide as a mechanical software program that enables you to work with multiple suppliers via transferring electronic files, which makes the time to evaluate and market faster on new products.
