Autodesk Digital Prototyping Solutions Selected Over Rivals
Farnborough, UK. 29 February, 2012 — Manufacturers worldwide have selected Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) solutions for Digital Prototyping over competitor products in recent months, with Autodesk Product Design Suite and Autodesk Factory Design Suite software leading the charge.
Autodesk customers selecting new or upgraded software span a wide variety of industries, ranging from industrial machinery to transportation to food products, from all regions of the world. For example, Czech Republic-based SKODA ELECTRIC, a global leading supplier of traction electric drives, trolleybuses and traction engines, chose Autodesk Inventor software to shorten delivery times in the engine design for its next generation suburban trains.
“In the Autodesk Inventor solution, we appreciate the quality implementation. As compared with our previous system CATIA, we feel we benefit from better functionality, generally lower operating costs and Inventor’s substantial popularity in institutions of higher learning in the Czech Republic,” said Martin Vlček, Head of Technical Department, Division Traction Motors, ŠKODA ELECTRIC a.s.
Other recent Autodesk manufacturing customer wins over competitors include:
U.S.-based microPEP, a unit of PEP specializing in the precision injection molding and insert molding of micro-sized plastic components for medical, energy management and automotive industries, selected Autodesk Product Design Suite over SolidWorks as its sole engineering design software.
