Design Automation

What is Design Automation?

Design Automation lets you configure, design, and deliver custom products faster than ever before. Automatically create detailed production and assembly drawings from within your CAD tool.

How can it help my business?

Tacton’s Design Automation radically reduces the time from design to fulfilment, freeing up teams
and helping to drive revenue growth
Streamline through
intelligent design
Automatically produce complete 2D drawing and 3D models of custom products and parts. By automating routine and repetitive CAD tasks, you can design more in less time, freeing up resources for innovation
Integrated CAD
Automation
The intuitive interface is embedded within your
familiar CAD environment, reducing
learning curve. Drawings update dynamically as
you work, while the modeling environment is
equally simple - create and maintain design
rules with no coding knowledge. Dynamically
generate configuration-specific models from
customer criteria
Eliminate costly
design errors
Minimize disruptive change orders and delays. The configurator-powered Tacton Design Automation tool will always propose a solution that’s not just buildable, but optimal

CUSTOMER STORIES

We have gotten to a point where our main constraint is how quickly we can extract the information from the customer specification and put it into the configurator. The modelling end is so fast; it is no longer a factor.

Chris Price

Senior Designer, ClearStream Environmental

In the water treatment industry, lead-time is often more important than price. With the combined SolidWorks and TactonWorks solution, once our proposal is accepted, design goes through engineering in just a few days, then out to fabrication. This type of automation has been a key factor in our business growth.

Brian Bartholomew

Senior Project Engineer, ClearStream Environmental

The drawings for complex shaft arrangements can now be produced in as little as 20 minutes, where this process previously took between 24 and 60 hours.

Pär Hallgren

“In the past, we did everything to the customer’s wishes. Today, the customer still has this perception, but we are in fact supplying a configured product based on carefully identified and standardized building blocks. This makes us faster and helps keep our stock levels down. It also ensures that products are already validated from a design and manufacturing point of view before an order is placed.”

Marcel Walvoort

Manager Product Configurator, Kramp
