Matritech Inc. has provided world-class custom machine components across Canada for more than three decades. For many sectors – construction, energy, rail transportation, the medical field, the automotive sector – the company offers unmatched skill and service. A key ingredient in Matritech’s success is its mastery of computer-aided design and manufacturing software, or CAD and CAM software. The Matritech team gets significant advantages over its competition by using these tools in its production process.
Adapting to evolving computer technology
Computer technology has evolved substantially since Matritech was founded in 1989. The company has continued to adapt to these changes in its design system and manufacturing practices, in part by adopting computer-aided design and production. With the help of advanced software like Autocad, Master Cam X4, and Solid Edge ST2, Matritech makes its design and engineering work faster and more efficient. This way, the team can deliver its components to all of its customers in a timely manner.
With CAD and CAM software, Matritech can import clients’ CAD files, work with them, and use the information as the source for the CNC programs that control the company’s production equipment, using up little time and effort. This process has been saving ample time for the staff for years.
A benefit of this CAD and CAM software is its synchronous technology. It allows designers to manipulate objects directly, unlike history-based CAD systems. Matritech employees can work with clients’ CAD models without needing to know anything about how they are constructed. In addition, this technology can make software more intuitive, which allows workers to focus on design without wasting a lot of time on learning how to operate the software.
Once it replaced its history-based software with this synchronous technology, Matritech yielded instant, significant improvement in design productivity. The company now takes approximately 40 per cent less time to design its components than it did under the old system. Making changes to existing CAD models takes roughly 30 per cent less time than it did before.
With computer-aided processes, Matritech can complete projects quickly and efficiently every single time.
