In our industry update series, we’ll share regular updates regarding the industries we serve. Today, we’re looking at the high tech industry—particularly the rapid growth and changes in these industries, and how manufacturers can keep up.
Solid Edge in the High Tech Industry
When you think of the high tech industry, you should think of the latest and greatest of any technology:
- 4K TVs, or the latest in television
- The latest smart phone iteration
- Nest, or other smart home devices and applications
- The latest advances in automotive technology
Simply put, high tech means cutting edge.
This industry is all about speed, efficiency and reliability—in terms of both creating products, and the product that’s being sold to the consumer. Speed and efficiency are the only way a company can stay in front of trends and the competition. Reliability is the best way to build a consumer base.
But staying in front of trends means you need a smart, powerful design tool that allows designers to juggle multiple tasks with ease. The only tool that can give you that power and simplicity is Solid Edge.
At Solid Edge University 2017 in Cincinnati, a representative from Mitsubishi Electronics Power Products, Inc. spoke on how their designers use Solid Edge to create their Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems. Solid Edge allows them to easily click and push and pull designs (particularly sheet metal designs) into the desired products, thanks to Synchronous Technology.
UPS systems are important to any company who needs a constant stream of uninterrupted power. A company like VISA, for example, could experience a power outage or power sag, leaving customers unable to even use their credit card. With a UPS, power can be maintained until a backup generator has time to kick on.
Now, Mitsubishi can design multiple parts of their UPS in a single file. Design comes down to just a matter of a handful of clicks. That’s the power of Solid Edge with Synchronous Technology.
