Anglo Platinum designs better with Solid Edge

The mining machinery maker moved from 2D to 3D CAD and, with Solid Edge (Siemens PLM Software), reducing mine design time up to 12 months. Drawing/design man hours are saved by using 3D designs and automating the generation of 2D drawings. Anglo Platinum recorded significant savings in engineering, construction and interest costs. "Switching to 3D CAD has helped us reduce the time required to design, fabricate and construct a 200,000-ton-per-month mine complex significantly," said Len Pretorius, general manager for project services at Anglo Platinum.
