Manufacturing Community Recognizes Bosch Rexroth Canada's Innovative Engineering Achievements
"We are truly honored to be named the 2006 Inventor of the Year," said Jim Lambert C.E.T., the design engineering manager of the Hydraulic Business Unit of Bosch Rexroth Canada. "It is especially rewarding to be recognized for our achievements by the Autodesk community -- one of the largest online manufacturing engineering communities in the industry."
Bosch Rexroth Canada relied on Autodesk Inventor software while modernizing the canal locks of the busiest waterway in North America, the St. Lawrence Seaway's Welland Canal. By using Inventor software, the company was able to design all-new hydraulic systems for the canal in 3D, resulting in dramatic reductions in design time and drawing errors.
"Adding the power of 3D to its design processes has allowed Bosch Rexroth Canada to successfully tackle even the most challenging and complex projects," said Robert "Buzz" Kross, vice president of Autodesk Manufacturing Solutions. "It is a pleasure to name them as the Inventor of the Year for 2006."
