Leuridan is a company located in the west of Flanders, specialised in machine constructions for wastewater treatment. They use Solid Edge, a powerful 3D package to draw their constructions in detail. CEO Wim Leuridan is pleased to share his experience with this software package.
As a specialist in water treatment, Leuridan mainly builds machine constructions for municipalities. A small share is in industrial water treatment. Since many years, the constructions are drawn with Solid Edge by 2 in-house designers. The efficient 3D design platform allows them to test their construction in full virtual reality to minimise manufacturing problems and reduce costs.
After detailed research and evaluation of various 3D software on the market, Wim resolutely chose Solid Edge in 2011. The design manager of the powerful package was immediately decisive for him. Wim followed an extensive training course to master the software. "It took a while before I really mastered it because I had no previous knowledge. With our colleagues designers, who already had a lot of experience with NX, the integration went very smoothly," Wim says.
"After 10 years, we couldn't do without Solid Edge. By drawing the construction in detail, we suddenly get a lot of information and can work in a much more detailed way. For example, you know exactly how much the machine will weigh, what material you must order, etc. In addition, ADOPT id PLM helped us with the integration of an add-on into Solid Edge, PSM to draft. The add-on optimises the procedure to create a summary drawing of the unfolding of our sheet metal work. Because of this extension, we are making huge time savings. The add-on optimises the procedure to make an overview drawing of the unfolding of our sheet metal work. Thanks to this add-on, we achieve enormous time savings. This procedure used to take several hours. Now we carry this out in a few minutes."
To conclude, CEO Wim Leuridan underlines the importance of good support when using a software package. "The support of ADOPT id PLM is really crucial for us. Why have a strong software package without the support to get the best out of it? With such a complete 3D package and support we still notice the improvements every day."
