Zuken Announces New E³.WireWorks Reseller for Midwest Region
June 15, 2010 – Munich, Germany and Westford, MA, USA – Zuken has announced that FISHER/UNITECH has joined its growing North American network of E³.WireWorks resellers. FISHER/UNITECH, headquartered in Troy, Michigan, is a leading SolidWorks 3D CAD software reseller with 10 branch offices located throughout the Midwest. The company provides design, analysis, data management, manufacturing, and rapid technology solutions to the discrete manufacturing sector.
With Zuken’s electrical/fluid engineering solution for SolidWorks users in its portfolio, FISHER/UNITECH can help its customers integrate their engineering disciplines by offering a bidirectional, associative solution that bridges the gap between disciplines. Zuken’s E³.WireWorks closely integrates with SolidWorks Premium Routing and Enterprise PDM, providing a complete design solution from design concept through physical realization and manufacturing output.
Charles Hess, president of FISHER/UNITECH, commented, "E³.WireWorks addresses an important area of need for our customers that we will now be able to assist them with. Mechatronics offers substantial benefits to product development efficiency and we think E³.WireWorks combined with SolidWorks is the best solution."
Most products and systems today have both mechanical and electrical content. The future of engineering design is moving towards mechatronics; a multidisciplinary engineering approach that avoids splitting engineering into different departments. SolidWorks handles mechanical design efficiently and accurately, but the electrical and fluid content increasingly requires a specialized tool such as E³.WireWorks, especially for mixed electrical and fluid systems such as those found in the automotive and machinery industries. Having the ability to use E³.WireWorks in conjunction with SolidWorks allows mechanical, electrical, and fluid designers to work together for better collaboration with fewer design errors, rework, and warranty issues while enabling companies to speed up the design process.
"We are pleased to have FISHER/UNITECH join our reseller network," said Tony Cadwell, worldwide reseller manager for Zuken EAS. "As one of the premier resellers of SolidWorks in North America, their customer-oriented business approach fits well with Zuken’s customer-focused business philosophy. The addition of E³.WireWorks to their portfolio will provide new opportunities to address their customers’ needs."
