ATD's CAD Expertise Produces Big Cost Savings for Automotive Manufacturer

Learn how ATD saved an automotive manufacturer hundreds of thousands of dollars by using CAD software to pinpoint a failure and design a new part.

“We were able to tell them that if they went down the path they’ve used for these other tools they’ve built and are running, this part is going to fail. Right up front, in the very early stages of the laying out of this tool, we were able to get that in front of them — before steel was ordered, before die was set, before a lot of costs were accrued.”
