HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mayekawa Manufacturing Company (Mayekawa), one of the most advanced companies in manufacturing industrial refrigeration compressors, has selected Intergraph® CADWorx® Plant Professional for 3D piping design of the refrigeration packages and gas compressor units it manufactures. Mayekawa has expanded the introduction of CADWorx worldwide to ensure consistency of design and better meet the needs of global projects.
Mayekawa's previous 3D engineering design system had severe limitations in operability and processing speed, which was slowing the company's production. To support its growing workload and international business, the manufacturer selected CADWorx as the replacement at its Japanese headquarters because the solution was the perfect fit with Mayekawa's requirements. CADWorx is user-friendly software that is quick and easy to set up, and is compatible with AutoCAD® and Intergraph CAESAR II® data. Another key benefit was the availability of local Japanese language support. Mayekawa has now expanded the use of CADWorx to its overseas locations, including Korea, Europe, Brazil and the United States, with the company's designers using the Intergraph solution for pipe design and equipment drawings.
"CADWorx has delivered a positive impact to our business, enabling us to reduce the time to create and modify 3D models and pipe design drawings for manufacturing," said the chief engineer of Mayekawa's Unit Products division. "The efficiencies that CADWorx has brought to our engineering processes allow us to create engineering deliverables quicker and more accurately."
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "We are pleased that Mayekawa has chosen CADWorx as its global engineering design solution. The bi-directional links between CADWorx and CAESAR II will enable Mayekawa to improve design quality and accuracy of engineering deliverables, while boosting productivity of projects. This is an important and strategic win for Intergraph, and will strengthen the growth of CADWorx in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region."
