At ERSEM MECHATRONICS, mechanical engineers use proven design methodologies and Dassault’s Solidworks to engineer and design custom mechanical equipment that best fit client needs. By leveraging the strength and flexibility of Solidworks, comprehensive design packages are prepared and ready for construction and incorporation into larger facility designs. Designing mechanical equipment begins by determining the design methodology that best fits the application. The most common methods are conceptual-to-elemental (top-down) and elemental-to-complex (bottom-up). Original machine design often requires a top-down methodology while retrofitting existing equipment may require bottom-up. Solidworks provides the tools required to implement each method and the flexibility to switch between methods if required.
