Case Study – Holley Performance

Corporate Summary

Holley® has been the undisputed leader in fuel systems for over 100 years. Holley carburetors powered every NASCAR® Sprint® Cup team and nearly every NHRA® Pro–Stock champion for four decades. Now, Holley EFI products power these cars and are dominating the performance world. Holley products for GM’s popular LS engine are dominating the LS scene as well. Holley’s products also include performance fuel pumps, intake manifolds & engine dress–up products for street performance, race and marine applications.

The Challenge

To raise the bar on their competitive advantage they needed a way to minimize time to market for new parts as well as lower costs, and increase overall productivity

The Solution

Holley Performance Products needed to stay ahead of the competition. They found the answer with SOLIDWORKS and the team at 3DVision Technologies. Holley chose SOLIDWORKS Premium, SOLIDWORKS Simulation and SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM to reduce design time without sacrificing quality and accuracy. “The support was great, you guys met with us several times to guide us through the options in SOLIDWORKS and helped throughout the process while we decided what we wanted to do. Sales was very supportive, I’d say 3DVision is above the bar on all aspects with their Technical Support being out the roof,” Coy Hudnall, Design and Development Engineer explains.

Summary and Metrics

  • Reduced scrap by creating a perfect 3D model every time
  • Optimized the desired light weight of new designs
  • Increased ease of communication with manufacturing producing a high level of accuracy
  • SOLIDWORKS conversion and implementation process got systems up and running quickly
