Industrial Machinery and Heavy Equipment

As machines become increasingly complex, designers and engineers face unique mechatronic engineering challenges. Design teams must streamline communication between mechanical systems and electrical engineering controls like never before.

SOLIDWORKS® integrated product development solutions provide a full range of modeling, simulation, and communication tools that help you optimize motor and actuator selection for price and energy consumption, while improving reliability so your machines require less maintenance.
