SolidWorks Helps to Develop Advanced Packing Technologies

Get automated with the SolidWorks family of products and partner products!

SolidWorks is more than just a mechanical CAD program.  It is a family of software packages that includes data management, simulation, technical documentation, and sustainability.  All of this software works hand-in-hand to help companies maximize time and resources.

Fortune 100 companies rely on OYSTAR North America’s Packaging Technologies Group for the development of rapid filling and packaging machines. While the company’s expertise has made it the world’s largest aerosol equipment manufacturer, OYSTAR also produces a variety of other filling machines that package products as varied as yogurt, applesauce, and coffee.

“…We needed a 3D design system to develop our packaging machines more precisely and realize improved efficiencies, so we could respond to customer demand for faster turnaround. Using 3D, we believed we could leverage automated design, simulation, and configuration tools to meet our goals.” – Nate Smith, MAP Applications manager
