AIGER ENGINEERING LTD.

“Before we implemented SOLIDWORKS Electrical software, there were two different workflows and two separate bills of materials (BOMs) for electrical and mechanical design. Now, we have a single platform, one workflow, and a unified BOM for everyone, which results in fewer mistakes and misunderstandings and greater attention to the overall branding aspects of how our machines look and operate on the factory floor.”

About AIGER ENGINEERING LTD.

Aiger Engineering Ltd. designs, engineers, manufactures, and installs high-precision production systems. Based in Bulgaria, Aiger Engineering is part of the Aiger Group AG, an international group of engineering companies focused on developing innovative products and technologies that improve production processes. For more than 20 years, the company’s experienced team of electrical, mechanical, and software engineers has delivered numerous new technologies and production processes in the pharmaceutical and tobacco industries. As an integrated solutions provider, Aiger delivers everything from initial product and process development to production and project management to onsite installation and support.

With substantial technical challenges—like installing flavor capsules at a rate of 14,000 per minute—Aiger relies on advanced 3D design and engineering tools to develop new products and innovative approaches. “It’s extremely important for us to operate in a high-technology, professional environment,” explains Executive Manager Dimitar Yanchev. “That’s why we were an early adopter of 3D design technology when we standardized on SOLIDWORKS® mechanical design software.”

Integrating Electrical And Mechanical Design

Upon implementing SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional software, Aiger initiated a pilot project to better understand the efficiency impact of integrating electrical and mechanical design. “Normally, electrical designers don’t like to work in the mechanical world and mechanical designers don’t want to deal with schematics,” Yanchev points out. “As a company, it was important for us to have all of our designers on a single development platform. Once our engineers used the software, they experienced the benefits themselves and realized that integrating electrical and mechanical design is a better, smarter way to work
