Mechanical and Plant Engineering

Comprehensive solution for comprehensive tasks

ROBERT NYBLAD GmbH - Whether filigree constructions or heavy steel engineering machines – the ROBERT NYBLAD GmbH is equally at home in both domains. Founded in 1878, the tradition-steeped company fabricates both machines for rough industrial environments and detailed, special machines with complex control systems for an international market. Its main fields of activity are the construction of processing plants for pulp production, plants for the paper and board industry, conveyor systems and subcontracted work. For more than 10 years, NYBLAD has been using HiCAD (CAD) and HELiOS (PDM) for its design tasks.

Biogas Plant

PlanET Biogastechnik GmbH standardises software environment with HiCAD and HELiOS

PlanET Biogastechnik GmbH - The PlanET Biogastechnik GmbH, one of the globally leading suppliers of biogas plants, has opted for an extensive and company-wide use of HiCAD and HELiOS, the CAD and PDM systems of the Dortmundbased ISD Group. One decisive selection criterion in favour of ISD’s software solutions was the seamless integration of industry-comprehensive functions for mechanical engineering and plant design, notably the P&ID and 3-D Layout Planning functions.

Facade and Metal Engineering

A challenge as hard as steel

Sioplan AG - The entrance area of a building is the calling card of every company. It is where a customer decides within seconds whether he feels welcome and comfortable or unwanted and out of place. How such a project can be constructively accomplished by use of most modern tools, shows the following article.

Steel and Metal Engineering

How visions become reality

Raiffeisen Lagerhaus Zwettl reg. Gen.m.b.H - With the switch to HiCAD the Raiffeisen Lagerhaus Zwettl reg. Gen.m.b.H. entered the third dimension with its division „locksmithing & portal design”. Since then the company could  not only reduce its design time about 40%, it could also realize projects that would have been hardly possible before.

Steel Engineering and Sheet Metal

Steel Engineering with HiCAD

Garaventa AG - For the design of towers for its ropeways, Garaventa (Gwatt/Thun) relies on the CAD system HiCAD and realizes designs in lofty heights. This also applies for the project “Linthal 2015”where it was necessary to bridge a difference in altitude of 1044 m.

Metal, Facade and Steel Engineering

Unlimited possibilities in all directions

Fill Metallbau GmbH - For more than one decade Fill Metallbau has been relying on HiCAD which enables the company to realize most complicated designs. One of their multitudinous projects represents the design and the realization of an imposing structure, which was elaborately designed in the shape of a train.

Engineering Services

Cross-sectoral working in custom machine building

PID AG - No matter in what industry you work - the ultimate key to success is an efficient 3-D design engineering process providing a high degree of planning safety while reducing cycle times. Complex projects therefore require a CAD software that allows its users to work across industries and supports the appropriate industry-specific automatisms.

Textile Industry

Engineering in a globalised market

Trützschler GmbH & Co. KG Textilmaschinenfabrik - Complex projects in the field of plant engineering make extremely high demands on the software and hardware used for their realisation. At the textile machinery manufacturer Trützschler, the connection and networking of international locations presents an additional challenge. During these tasks, HiCAD and HELiOS provide the best possible support.

Sheet Metal

High-precision sheet metal processing

Wilvo metaalbewerking bv. - Today sheet metal processing stands for state-of-the-art production technologies and materials. Whereas in former times, housing elements, facade sheets etc. used to be made up of several parts, it is now possible to use complex folded sheets consisting of only one piece. Therefore, 3-D CAD and a consistent process chain have recently become increasingly important.

Sheet Metal

Optimised and consistent process cycles, more time for customers

Suplacon - The Dutch sheet metal processing company Suplacon can handle even the greatest time pressure effortlessly: Thanks to a consistent process chain, many of their production processes could be automated. These time savings do not only enable the company to react to customer wishes immediately and flexibly, but also to use their NC machines to full capacity.
