RW Group, founded in 1964, is a listed company based in Taiwan. It specializes in the manufacture and sale of pistons and forging products for automobiles, locomotives, engine equipment and aviation industries. As a 80% export-oriented company, RW Group also engages in the OEM & ODM for automobiles, motorcycles, outboard engines and industrial engines.
Even though RW Group has a strong position in its markets, it constantly refines production technologies and introduces up-to-date computer-based management, in a bid to maintain a high level of quality, improve R&D efficiency and expand product offerings to break into new markets.
After thorough evaluation, RW Group purchased ZW3D CAD/CAM. With diversified product design functionalities, ZW3D assists RW Group to maximize the flexibility in modelling. “ZW3D is a suite of applications you can use to design products the way you want – not the way your CAD tool requires,” said Wang-Chin Lee, Manager of R&D Department of RW Group.
It is applied to design various products, like the automobile connecting rods, the steering linkage products, hubs, front wheels and aluminium components for all kinds of engines. “The solid-surface hybrid modelling capability of ZW3D is needed for the smoothly contoured designs in all the aluminium components of engines,” added Lee. “Its ribbon interface and other features make day-to-day use faster than Autodesk Inventor. Our engineering department is completing 10% faster after adopting ZW3D.”
Packed with a powerful file translator, ZW3D provides the team with the ability to import data from multiple vendors with competitive pricing. “Importing data into ZW3D is 5 minutes faster per project compared to Autodesk Inventor. Besides, with ZW3D, you can create, view, and share designs downstream using 2D CAD, 3D CAD, surface and solid modelling capabilities,” commented Lee.
