Wünkhaus Electromecánica is a family business set up in Santiago de Chile in the 1970's. Currently equipped with TopSolid'Design, TopSolid'Mold and TopSolid'Cam the company enjoys full integration from the design of its products to the final production.
The company now employs 50 people and specializes in the design, development and production of electrical components and appliances for mines. Its products are very complex, specific and high-tech and whose main purpose is to permit the distribution of electrical current within mines. Wünkhaus' main customers are mining companies in Chile and South America and is one of Chile's main exporters of copper. As a secondary activity Wünkhaus Electromecánica develops mechanical components for other sectors as well as designing molds and die-stamping tools.
After 1 and a half years of deliberation Wünkhaus Electromecánica choose TopSolid in December 2003. Using a software which could no longer meet the requirements of the company and after analysing 5 other well-known CAD/CAM systems Wünkhaus Electromecánica opted for the fully integrated TopSolid. Integration was a key factor in in the company's choice of a CAD/CAM software. Producing components, appliances and molds Wünkhaus Electromecánica needed a powerful, fast and efficient software which would be able to meet its many needs.
4 Cavity Mold Design at Wünkhaus Electromecánica
TopSolid reseller in Chile, Implementa 3D (formerly known as CAD CAM S.A), equipped the company with 3 TopSolid'Pro, 1 TopSolid'Mold and 1 TopSolid'Cam licences. Within 2 months Wünkhaus Electromecánica received training in basic design, basic mechanics, advanced training in assembly and also in 2D, 3D and HSM (High Speed Machining)
TopSolid'Design has now become an indispensable tool for Wünkhaus Electromecánica. TopSolid's mechanical and cinematic simulation is important as many of the company's products are complex and are made up of over 100 parts. Thanks to TopSolid's cinematic module Wünkhaus Electromecánica can test that everything works properly and can also prevent potential collisions. Using the standard components available in TopSolid'Design has allowed the company to reduce its design time by more than 30% compared to its previous CAD/CAM system.
Speaking about TopSolid, Rene Berrios, Manager of the Engineering Department says: "Thanks to TopSolid'Cam the company's productivity has doubled. Regarding its 2D and 3D mechanical capabilities in addition to its powerful drilling tools, I have never seen such powerful functionalities in a software."
The company's use of TopSolid'Mold has also brought about huge benefits to Wünkhaus Electromecánica. A mold design involving a medium level of complexity which would have taken in average weeks 2 years is now competed in 4 days.
Wünkhaus Electromecánica has benefited from the fully integrated CAD/CAM software allowing complete integration from design right through to manufacturing.
