St. Louis, MO. — Unigraphics Solutions Inc. announces that Sun Yang Tech. Co. – Inchon, Korea-based manufacturer of semiconductor machinery – has selected Solid Edge as its standard mechanical computer-aided design software package, with a purchase of 26 licenses.
Sun Yang Tech evaluated four CAD packages before replacing its former 2-D system with Solid Edge. The company cited several differentiators in the selection of Solid Edge, including its leading ability to manage large mechanical assemblies, its best-in-class drafting and its automated bill-of-materials capabilities.
“It was clear to us that Solid Edge would provide a higher level of productivity and return on investment than the other systems we evaluated,” says J.Y. Yoo, manager of the Automation R&D Department at Sun Yang Tech. “We were also very impressed with Solid Edge’s ease-of-use.”
“Solid Edge has now become the system of choice for semiconductor machinery design in Korea and other major silicon chip producing regions, due to its ease of use and performance in managing large assemblies,” says Bill McClure, director of the Solid Edge line of business at Unigraphics Solutions.
Solid Edge is the proven design engineering solution that will reduce time to market by an achievable 50 percent using STREAM, an exclusive technology that accelerates the engineering process. Solid Edge provides advanced 3-D part modeling, large assembly design and powerful drafting, as well as process-specific features for sheet metal, plastics and tubing design.
Solid Edge is the ideal CAD solution for design engineers moving from 2-D drafting to 3-D solids-based design. With fully integrated 2-D and 3-D design functions, Solid Edge provides a risk-free path to solid modeling design techniques, while getting the most from existing 2-D CAD.
The Solid Edge Voyager Program includes more than 150 downstream engineering software applications in such disciplines as finite element analysis, manufacturing, kinematics and dynamics, electro-mechanical, rapid prototyping, standard parts, product data management, translation, view/redline/animation and hardware solutions.
Solid Edge is written for Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 98 and Windows 2000 operating systems, and is distributed in eight languages to customers around the world, including Boeing, Kaiser Optical, Alcoa, Volvo, L-3 Communications, Ohio State University, Yale University, University of Edinburgh, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, NASA, Royal Air Force, S&C Electric, Lincoln Electric, WMF, Electromagnetic Sciences, Liebert Corp., Kaeser Kompressoren, Prodrive, USSC Group, Seiko, Hyundai, Daikin and NEC.
Located in the Namdong Industrial Estate in Inchon, Korea, Sun Yang Tech Co. Ltd. has been designing and manufacturing semiconductor machinery since 1993. For more information on Sun Yang Tech, see http://www.sunyangtech.co.kr .
