National Products Inc./R-A-M Technologies
- Decreased design time from 1 week to 2 days,and from 6 months to 1 month.
- Reduced errors 100%.
- We just got a job from Symbol Technologies today to build a new cradle for the new Palm Pilot for our R-A-M Mounting Systems.
For more than 26 years I wanted hardware and software to catch up with my demands for a way to quickly and easily produce shapes that could be generated with machines. I needed a model that could build variations to the basic length, ball size and wall thickness. I needed to produce complex shapes required for a double socket arm. Our customer, Intel, suggested we use SolidWorks CAD software.
SolidWorks CAD software has allowed us to quickly, easily, at an affordable price and in-house: design, rapid-prototype, CAM the part molds and produce parts in less than 3 weeks. We make parts so fast that within 24 hours we are digitally photographing the end product. We also use SolidWorks CAD software to develop rapid-prototype patterns that we use in our foundry. With this model, we can build variations to the basic length, ball size and wall thickness within 10 minutes. There are now more than 12 sizes of this arm model. Thank you, SolidWorks, for doing a great job of listening and responding to our needs.
