“Hopefully the shorter lead times will mean companies can increase their productivity,” explains Rikard Levenstam, Technical Sales Development Manager at Autodesk.
Inventor HSM, which is an integrated CAD and CAM tool, has been on the market for a couple of years but is only now really starting to seize a share of the Nordic market.
Having an integrated system means that designers and engineers can create products using only a single tool.
“It’s primarily a way of increasing productivity,” says Business Development Manager Daniel Börjesson. “Everything in the program is integrated, so for example you can print out a model using 3D printing and then later make the same model using a milling machine.”
During Elmia Subcontractor Autodesk is displaying the program at its stand, where it also has two 3D printers. On Thursday the company will hold a seminar during Functional Food, when it will present its view on current trends in engineering design and design.
Autodesk has participated in Elmia Subcontractor for more than a decade and meets with both new and existing customers during the fair.
“This is the best fair for us to visit,” Börjesson says. “The target group is perfect and the fair is well located in Sweden. Of course we want to meet new customers and spread our message that we have solutions which can cover some aspects that companies don’t have covered today.”
