Japanese manufacturer standardises on CADWorx Plant Professional

Mayekawa Manufacturing Company (Mayekawa) has selected Intergraph’s CADWorx Plant Professional for the 3D piping design of the refrigeration packages and gas compressor units it manufactures. The company’s previous 3D engineering design system had severe limitations in operability and processing speed, which was slowing production. To support its growing workload and international business, the manufacturer selected CADWorx as the replacement at its Japanese headquarters.

CADWorx is user-friendly software that is quick and easy to set up, and is compatible with AutoCAD and Intergraph CAESAR II data. Another key benefit was the availability of local Japanese language support. Mayekawa has now expanded the use of CADWorx to its overseas locations, including Korea, Europe, Brazil and the United States, with the company’s designers using the Intergraph solution for pipe design and equipment drawings.

The CADWorx Plant Design Suite is an integrated, complete AutoCAD-based software series for plant design that provides intelligent drawing and database connectivity, advanced levels of automation and easy-to-use drafting and design tools. The comprehensive suite of design tools includes piping, structural steel, equipment, process and instrument diagrams and design review, plus automatic isometrics and bills of material.
