CAD / CAE Engineering Services - Heavy Engineering

Heavy engineering industry poses a completely different CAD / CAE challenge due to the massive scale of operation and the sizes involved. Due to the sheer size and weight constraints, the requirements on operational and construction safety are extremely stringent. Also the nature of usage of the equipment under this category itself means that the every challenge is unique and needs a fresh approach and innovative thinking to design and address the problems. DesignTech has a proven track record in this challenging sector and has been involved in projects of national and global repute. Today we are a vendor of choice for large structural engineering problems for organizations like BARC, ECIL, BHEL, DRDO (India) etc. Following is a brief summary of the services offering to this sector
