Tewkesbury based operation Smart Stabilizer Systems has seen many changes over the past ten years. But one thing has remained constant; their determination to maximize the benefits of 3D design and its commitment to best practices in this area. Thus from the very early years they have used Autodesk Inventor.
Smart Stabilizer Systems design and manufacture drilling products for the oil and gas industry. They are complex, sensitive pieces of equipment which require precision and absolute accuracy in the design. Using Inventor to create a digital prototype enables them to test and analyse their designs on-screen so that once their products go into manufacture they can be pretty sure they are going to work.
A sister company of theirs in the US uses Inventor and as their tools fit on top of the tools designed by Smart Stabilizer it was only sensible to ensure that they could interchange files easily. They started from scratch using the very latest 3D tools which has held them in good stead and put them ahead of their competitors. Using Inventor and digital prototyping has now become a way of life for them and when a new member of the design team joins the company they go on a training course with Cadspec. Regardless of which solution they have used beore they always find Inventor straightforward to learn and enjoy using it.
"Because we use Inventor to create a digital prototype - enabling us to test and analyse our designs on-screen - once our products go into manufacture we can be pretty sure they are going to work."
