Meeting high expectations with precision

Prodomax's clients expect rapid development cycles and increasingly ask for advanced simulations in their project specifications. To stay ahead, Prodomax needed a powerful simulation solution that could integrate and test robotics in a virtual environment before physical installation. The goal was clear: reduce lead times, enhance accuracy, and ensure seamless integration of robotic systems into their manufacturing lines.

Embracing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

To tackle this challenge, Prodomax chose Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform, specifically leveraging the Digital Equipment Continuity industry solution. This comprehensive toolset includes DELMIA for robotic simulation and SOLIDWORKS for tooling design.
