SolidBox recently completed a sale to TMCo Inc. of Wewoka, OK. They specialize in the manufacture of orifice fittings for the measurement of natural gas.
Jamie Broyles, Engineering Manager at TMCo, called to tell us how stoked he was about his new setup (a Professional Mobile System – M6500 Covet), and a little bit about how it’s helped make his job easier:
SB – How long have you been using SolidWorks?
JB – About 8 years.
SB – Why did you decide to go with SolidBox?
JB – I had never had a computer system that would truly run Solidworks to its full potential. All the past systems would lockup, shut down, or overheat. So, before I started with TMCo they told me to get what I wanted so I called Jay Clanahan with MLC CAD in Stillwater and he told me about Solidbox.
SB – What’s one of the biggest challenges you face in designing orifice fittings? How has using 3D CAD helped?
JB – One of the biggest challenges is all the configurations that we make and Solidworks makes it easy. We can create a basic model and then generate a design table to help produce the rest. Then we can run it all through the Simulation to prove out the design.
SB – Why did you choose a mobile solution as opposed to a more powerful desktop solution?
JB – I wanted something that I could use at work, home or on the road without having to transfer files from one computer to the other.
SB – How were you able to help your company understand your hardware needs as a 3D CAD user?
JB – TMCo already understood the demands that Solidworks has on a computer; that is why there was no problem when it came to getting the package that I needed.
Jamie also adds,
“I had a great experience with Chris and Joel at Solidbox. They are both very knowledgeable of computers as well as what it takes to work with Solidworks. I will highly recommend to anyone, who uses Solidworks or any other CAD/CAM software to give Chris or Joel a call at Solidbox!”
