The Challenge

Hilge’s products have many variants and every quotation must be precisely specified. Their customers expect drawings and 3D models. To ensure that the engineering knowledge will be kept in the company, Hilge used to use a special 3D model during the sales process, which required one to three days of design work for each quotation. Hilge felt this was too long and needed a way to complete the quotations and get them to the customers quicker.

The Solution

Hilge chose Tacton Design Automation as the system that best met their requirements. Hilge gave real CAD models to Tacton, who prepared them for the configuration pilot project. After a few days of training, Hilge implemented the quotation design for the new generation of rotary lobe pumps in Tacton Design Automation in just a few months. The implementation was so favorable that designers from other product groups daily ask when their products will be converted. Grundfos is also taking a great interest in the new design automation solution their German subsidiary brought about.
