U-SMD Selected ZWCAD+ to Stay Ahead of the Switchboard Competition

GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 5, 2014ZWCAD Design, an innovative supplier of CAD solutions for the MCAD and AEC industries, announced that U-SMD Co., Ltd., a leading manufacturer and distributor of switchboard enclosures in Thailand, has selected ZWCAD+ to improve efficiency of product development. With the ability to handle large files flexibly, as well as powerful file compatibility and utility functions that streamline design workflow, ZWCAD+ helps U-SMD accelerate the project development process and win new business.

Established in 1995, U-SMD is one of the first switchboard enclosure manufacturers with ISO 9002 certification in Thailand. They have now fully applied CAD/CAM software to their product design for fully computerized production. With more than 15 years experience in switchboards design and assembly, their production capacity has reached 3,000 cubic tons/year.

The Needs

U-SMD is among the first to introduce CAD/CAM technology in enclosure production in Thailand. After a period of high growth, they have realized that their existing CAD software is no longer keeping up with their business needs. Their current CAD software is too slow, and will sometimes close suddenly before saving. Furthermore, their current CAD is not compatible with the file formats generated by the higher version, so they have to rely on third-party tools to open and save as a lower version. As a result, U-SMD is constantly looking for new CAD software to support higher design requirements.

The Solutions

Introduced by one of their customers, U-SMD further researched ZWCAD+ and became interested. ZWCAD+’s new memory optimization technology enables faster and smoother large file operations. With its drawing recovery feature, engineers don’t need to worry about data loss when something unexpected happens to the computers. The multiple version and format support eliminates time-consuming data conversion, thereby streamlining project workflows and reducing the risk of data corruption. “We have never thought that we could open and run files over 100MB in such a short time,” said Mr. Tirawat Makead, IT Officer of U-SMD. “The interface is so similar that our engineers finished their switchboard enclosure design one day after receiving ZWCAD+.”

Additionally, the advanced features of ZWCAD+ are particularly beneficial to U-SMD, most notably Smart Series, which helps get the job done with less effort and time. “ SmartVoice brings a whole new level of efficiency to onsite project reviews. Our engineers can go to the plant with only their tablets, and make comments in no time. It’s really a very convenient method of annotation,” Mr. Tirawat Makead added.

The Services

The technical support provided by Xianjin, the authorized distributor of ZWCAD+ in Thailand, is another reason that accelerated U-SMD’s decision to choose ZWCAD+. They provide professional training that helps optimize the quality and productivity of their workflow and make full use of the product.
