Mold Tool & Dies
Burlington Technologies, Inc. produces high-pressure aluminum die castings, which automotive companies use to produce numerous parts. As a world-class tooling anufacturer, the Burlington Centennial division continually evaluates ways to boost productivity in the development and machining of die-casting tools for the automotive industry.
According to Ivan Zuccolin, manager of corporate tool design at the Centennial division, the company’s move to 3D solid modeling in 2006 created the opportunity to implement a product data management (PDM) system. “We transitioned from a 3D wireframe package to the SolidWorks® 3D CAD system and almost simultaneously evaluated available PDM solutions,” Zuccolin recalls. “We not only needed a revision control application, but also wanted a solution for controlling workfl ow by automatically moving a design document from one stage to the next.”
Burlington consulted with Javelin Technologies, its SolidWorks reseller, on PDM solutions, and implemented SolidWorks Enterprise PDM soft ware at its Centennial and Burlington divisions in concert with SolidWorks 3D CAD software. Burlington chose SolidWorks Enterprise PDM because it is easy to use, provides valuable PDM capabilities for the price, integrates fully with SolidWorks, and is simple to install.
