Maxon Lift Corp. implemented a software design tool, SolidWorks Modeling System, that allows lift systems to be tested via computer imagery.
Using the software, Maxon's engineers can perform strength, strain and interference tests within a computer model before any actual fabrications are manufactured.
The tool enables designers to view three-dimensional, moving models from all angles. Models are then converted to flat print drawings, which eliminates draft errors.
Maxon used SolidWorks in the design of its new BMR.A and MTB liftgates.
