Elevator Systems Manufacturer Standardizes On SolidWorks

CONCORD, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 19, 2006— SolidWorks Corporation, the leading supplier of 3D CAD technology, today announced that elevator systems leader Wittur Turkey has standardized on SolidWorks(R) software, enabling the company to shorten its design-to-manufacturing process by more than 40 percent. Wittur Turkey identified time and cost savings in several development phases, including planning, design, bills of material management, order confirmation, and production.

Switching to SolidWorks 3D CAD software has given Wittur Turkey the ability to work more intuitively and creatively, resulting in better products moving more quickly to market. The company relies heavily on SolidWorks software's unique ability to automate the 3D design of metal sheets and plates that need to be precisely bent, cut, drilled, lasered, punched, and welded.

Wittur Turkey evaluated all of the major 3D CAD offerings and chose SolidWorks for its ease of use, intuitive interface, and breadth of integrated capabilities. "Our success depends largely on our capacity to quickly and flexibly adapt to the demands of our customers," said Ercument Hizal, general manager of Wittur Turkey. "And while we're focused on 3D, we need full access to our 2D data and the ability to move back and forth between drawing and solid modeling. SolidWorks was superior even to AutoCAD Inventor(R) in this regard and was the optimal answer to our designers' needs."

Wittur Turkey is a member of the Wittur Group, the global leader in elevator components manufacturing. Wittur Turkey produces elevators for passenger, freight, hospital, and panoramic applications as well as shaft systems and a wide range of standard and customized components.

In addition to SolidWorks 3D CAD software, Wittur Turkey has purchased COSMOSWorks(R) analysis software, PDMWorks(R) product data management software, and PhotoWorks(TM) rendering software - tools that help Wittur Turkey further reduce production time and cost. COSMOSWorks software helps Wittur Turkey's design engineers ensure the safety of the elevators, enabling iterative testing directly from the SolidWorks interface. COSMOSWorks also minimizes overdesign, significantly reducing costs throughout all design and production phases. Wittur Turkey is using the eDrawings(R) e-mail-based collaboration tool to shorten approval and confirmation processes with customers.

"Wittur Turkey is a much-admired leader in elevator technology, manufacturing, and customer satisfaction," said Rainer Gawlick, SolidWorks Corporation's vice president of worldwide marketing. "The measures it has taken to improve design processes have had a direct, significant, and quantifiable impact on its business. SolidWorks Corporation will continue to meet the needs of companies like Wittur Turkey, supporting their single-minded endeavor to provide their many important customers with better products."

Wittur Turkey relies on SolidWorks reseller Umtas A.S. for ongoing software training, implementation, and support.
