Germany's BESSEY Selects ZW3D
GUANGZHOU, China, Oct 22, 2015 - ZW3D, one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for the manufacturing industry, today announced it has been chosen by BESSEY Tool GmbH & Co. KG (BESSEY), a long-established German manufacturer and provider of bright and stainless steels.

With 125 years of innovation and quality, BESSEY is one of the world's leading manufacturers of professional hand tools in the fields of clamping and cutting technology. It mainly serves the automotive industry, the mechanical engineering sector and the fastening technology industry in over 100 countries, with product range of 1,600 different clamping and cutting tools.

The Need

Even in purely mechanical hand tools without motor and electronics, the use of software in the design is becoming increasingly important. As a company renowned for its impeccable craftsmanship, Bessey keeps investing in maximizing precision and durability. They needed a 3D CAD/CAM platform to achieve innovations in the manufacturing of tooling and metal shears.

The Solution

With thousands of different clamping and cutting tools, Bessey helps craftsmen and industrial companies to cope with diversified tasks. Approximately 12,000 clamps are produced daily at Bessey. With ZW3D, an integrated design & CNC system distributed in Germany by Encee CAD/CAM systems, BESSEY manage to shorten the product design cycle from days to a few hours.

"We prefer an easy-to-learn program because it can help you to work quickly with the old routine," explains Hans Rösch, Head of R&D Department in BESSEY. As an integrated CAD / CAM system with Windows interface, ZW3D offers easy-handling and intelligent commands that facilitate many work processes. “The ZW3D CAD/CAM is very functional with many easy-to-use and powerful features included.” Adds Rösch.

ZW3D is packed with Solid-surface Hybrid Modeling technology to make all features feasible on both solids & surfaces, helping BESSEY to flexibly design from idea to final product. "Everyone has their own style of working," says Product Developer, Uwe Bastian, "and these personal characteristics are well supported by ZW3D."

Moreover, the embedded file translator benefits BESSEY in improving data interoperability with mainstream 2D & 3D platform. "With ZW3D, it is quick and easy," Bastian says. "In the previously used program, there were very complicated transmission & two much calculation time."

BESSEY is an innovative company, not only in terms of software and virtual product development. The switch to ZW3D has proven itself.


Founded in 1889 as a bright steel drawing plant in Stuttgart, the south west of Germany, BESSEY has developed into the leading German manufacturer- and trading-independent provider of high quality bright steel and stainless steels with a presence in over 100 countries. "BESSEY. Simply better."


ZW3D is cost-effective CAD/CAM software for 3D modeling, mold design, and machining, which takes engineers from concept to finished product in one easy-to-use, single collaborative environment. For more information, visit or follow ZWSOFT on Facebook.
