“We used the 3D model to analyze the working table function, ergonomics and safety. For safety reasons, the table structure is designed to be able to withstand high loads. SolidWorks has also made it easy to produce operational and safety instructions and diagrams as well as maintenance and spare parts booklets.”

THE CHALLENGE

Wihuri Oy Technical Trade (WOTT) in the Finnish town of Raahe has solved this problem using SolidWorks to design an ergonomic workbench that makes proper disassembly and assembly of the cylinders a simple and secure task.

THE SOLUTION

“By using a 3D CAD system in the development of the workbench, we succeeded in constructing a prototype of the workbench, which was almost ready for production. However some minor changes to the basic design in regard to operation, ergonomics, safety and accessories were necessary,” explains Esa Savolainen, the development engineer at WOTT using Solidworks Premium.
