DesignTech Systems, a leading CAD/CAM/CAE, PLM and Additive Manufacturing solutions and technologies provider in India, organised a one day technology seminar on October 28, 2015 in Pune, to showcase the latest technologies in product design, development and manufacturing. This full day event saw a congregation of some of the big names in the engineering industry, along with an encouraging participation from the SMEs, which make for the backbone of engineering and manufacturing industry in Pune.
While presenting his welcome note on the occasion, Vikas Khanvelkar, Managing Director, DesignTech Systems, expressed his views stating, “I am extremely overwhelmed to see such a fantastic response to this event. It makes me happy to see the enthusiasm among the engineering industry to learn about, understand the advantages, and consider adopting new and advanced technologies to add more value to their engineering initiatives. Pune has always been at the centre of engineering industry in India. Being an engineering hub, industry here should be among the first to adopt new technologies that will enhance their quality of productivity, augment efficiency of processes and improve the overall performance of product making them more competitive and bringing them at par with the global standards of engineering and manufacturing excellence.”
Underlining the event’s theme ‘Leverage Technology for Product Excellence’, Khanvelkar further emphasises, “Through this seminar, we are showcasing the advanced technologies from the world leaders such as Siemens Industry Software, Altair Engineering, Stratasys & SLM to demonstrate how you can leverage these technologies to attain maximum efficiency, and excellent product quality in minimum time & costs. We attempt to make industry aware of the latest trends and technologies in the product design, development and manufacturing arena. These technologies together can make for a robust R&D set-up and will help companies achieve their desired goals of product quality, time and cost efficiency, optimisation of resources and funds, and of overall productivity of their department.”
Sanjay Daga, President – Operations, DesignTech Systems, exclaimed, ‘‘Besides promoting cutting-edge technologies, we have always been a customer oriented company, determined to provide seamless customer service, training and support, thereby, making every dealing with the customer a delightful experience for them. The customer case studies being presented at this forum are a testimony to our service to them. We are thrilled and extremely grateful to all the customers who very readily and willingly agreed to present their technology usage and DesignTech support experience on this big platform.”
Being strategic business partners with world leaders such as Siemens PLM for their product design and PLM software solutions, Altair Engineering for their CAE suite of solutions, Stratasys for their Additive Manufacturing machines, and SLM for their metal 3D printers, DesignTech showcased technologies at every stage of product lifecycle starting from concept development, 3D modeling and validation, product design analysis and simulation, rapid prototyping, alternative production technologies, through to PLM for managing and optimising the entire product design and development data and processes.
Several presentations were conducted by DesignTech professionals that share insights into Siemens’ NX synchronous technology & Teamcenter PLM, Stratasys’ Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Altair’s Hyperworks CAE suite and metal 3D printing with SLM. Various case studies presented by the customers also added more insight into the use, applications and benefits of these technologies and the value they add to the company’s engineering and product development initiatives. They also illustrated the customer support being extended by DesignTech, which helped them implement and use these technologies to the very best, thus, enabling them to derive highest return on their investments.
Hemant Jere, Head, Design & Development, Supreme Industries, a recognised name in plastic product manufacturing, and a customer of Stratasys 3D printer, shared their experience of how Stratasys 3D printer helped them develop better products.
Prakash Khot, Manager, Product Design and Suraj Kolte, Engineer Product Design, Kalyani Maxion Wheels, a leading player in wheels manufacturing and a supplier for many big OEMs and car companies, presented a case study on Altair CAE suites of solutions and how it enabled them to analyse and evaluate their product designs thus helping them develop more robust products.
Sajith Chenat, Director, Matrix Tools and Solutions, an ardent user of Siemens NX solutions, spoke at length about the benefits of NX as an advanced CAD and 3D modeling software, which helped them develop even the most complex geometries and shapes effectively.
After every presentation, an interactive quiz session was witnessed amongst the crowd, where the winners were rewarded by DesignTech. In addition to this, answers were tweeted with #DTTechDay from Twitter, where the winner who answered the most was awarded at the end of the event. More than 200 guests from the engineering industry being present for the seminar made this event significant and noteworthy of recognition.
