Fletcher Burwell-Taylor


Fletcher Burwell-Taylor Ltd is a premium furniture design company.

Amongst traditional and modern design methods of using high quality woods, other materials and finishes, they have combined their art with good mechanical design skills of their partners to achieve some very unique products. One of these products is an automatic radially expanding table. These are some very exclusive designs with intricate mechanisms and small margins for error.

SolidWorks was used as the mechanical design software coupled with RevZone Product Data Management system. This design consists of more than 2,500 components, hundreds of assemblies, in-context designs and heavy use of configurations. Previous design was managed through a 2D system and simple file management. SolidWorks simplified the design drastically whereas RevZone cut down Bill Of Materials creations, searching and document findings, Where Used information, related files management, revision control, batch printing, batch conversions to DWG, eDrawings and PDF formats, and more. This partnership between SolidWorks and RevZone meant that such innovative and exclusive design not only operates as good as it looks but at minimum assembly time and with the amount of re-work reduced to a minimum.

Hi-Press Hydraulics

Hi-Press Hydraulics provide a national and international service for the supply, hire and maintenance of an extensive range of both high and low pressure hydraulic equipment. Hi-Press also offer a design and manufacture facility for bespoke applications. Operating in some very demanding industries presents many opportunities and above all very little margin for error.

High Press Hydraulics (Cumbria) chose SolidWorks for their mechanical designs and RevZone as their Product Data Management solution. RevZone provides easy access to the exact state of previous revisions and easily maintains all part number entries while automatically building all dependencies. RevZone has been exceptionally easy when it comes to quickly finding and launching parts/assemblies or their related drawings. The more and more RevZone is used at High Press Hydraulics the more benefits are apparent in using this Data Management approach.

RevZone has a great ability to import legacy data straight into a project. This can be from existing custom properties in an assembly, or even scanning an entire windows folder and moving/copying parts/assemblies/drawings to their respective project defined locations and applying values automatically. Making designers job easier and maintaining good and easy control over the data is after all what an Engineering Data Management system should be all about.
