Sharp Chucks uses computer-aided design (CAD) technology to meet customer demands for innovative new products. Sharp Chucks engineers had been using AutoCAD® software and SolidWorks® software for product design, but the company wanted to speed up product development dramatically, while reducing errors, rework and scrap. Sharp Chucks management ascertained that the organization needed to migrate to a totally 3D environment to be able to meet its targets, especially its goal to respond markedly faster to customer requests.

Sharp Chucks chose Solid Edge® software from Siemens Digital Industries Software to improve its product development operations. It only took a brief demonstration to convince Sharp Chucks management to adopt Solid Edge as its new design software standard. “The fact that learning to use Solid Edge is easy and quite straight forward was a welcome bonus,” says Ravinder Kumar Jhalli, head of operations at Sharp Chucks.
