We’d like to take a moment and welcome five companies—representing a wide range of industries, —who chose PTC’s CAD software to improve their product design and development processes, as well as position themselves for the requirements of a new generation of products.
From a national leader in industrial transportation to a global rail technology company, they each bring innovation and passion to the products they design and engineer. Here’s a quick round-up of each company and what makes them stand out.
A leading global technology and services innovator that solves challenging problems in commercial, defense and security markets, Cobham designs and engineers products for space stations, aircraft, and cruise ships. From the design of the first breathing regulator for Project Mercury, to a full suite of hardware and cutting-edge pneumatic subsystems for the ISS, they’ve engineered some of the most complex, challenging space components. Stuff space dreams are made of.

CAL International calls itself a “concept to production engineering company” that supports life safety, oil and gas, automotive and commercial vehicle, civil engineering and construction industries. They walk the walk. The company prides itself on delivering high-quality CAD data to clients. “Our processes mean that no CAD data will be released to our clients containing external geometries or missing references,” reads the CAL website. “All our CAD is created from first features and is fully modifiable by our clients.” We love that.

LR Pure Systems GmbH manufactures and installs components, assemblies, and complete systems ranging from semiconductors to pharmaceuticals to optics. Some of the services they perform include bending, turning/milling, sanding, welding, assembling, and installation from developing, designing, manufacturing and managing OEM assemblies and parts.
Menci Groupwas established in 1927 by Geremia Menci, a skilled artisan blacksmith who produced machines and equipment for agriculture, mainly plows. Skip to 2018 and things have, well, changed. They’re now national leaders in industrial transportation that develops both steel and light aluminum alloy for semi-trailers and bulk feed tanks.

Vossloh is a leading global rail technology company that offers integrated solutions from a single source. In other words, they design and engineer products for rail infrastructure, all under one roof (literally), including rail fastening systems, concrete sleepers, switch systems and services related to the value maintenance of the rails.

“No matter their industry, companies who select the Creo suite of CAD software from PTC will be able to create and design more efficient, cost effective, and innovative products more easily,” says Brian Thompson, SVP and general manager, CAD, PTC. “These companies are all uniquely impressive and innovative, and PTC looks forward to seeing them progress following their decision to switch to Creo.”
From initial concept to design and analysis, Creo provides designers with innovative tools to efficiently create better products. Thousands of leading manufacturers worldwide use Creo’s CAD, IoT, and augmented reality capabilities to quickly turn their ideas into reality. We look forward to seeing new ideas, new solutions, and new designs from each of these customers.
John Chilson has been writing about tech since the days when you had to dial up your modem for an internet connection. In other words, a long time. In his previous life, he edited trade publications (covering topics ranging from UNIX to Lotus to e-business to construction). Nowadays, John enjoys learning about new technology and telling customers' stories. He’s fascinated by the engineering of everyday things but is lately engaged in a battle of wits with an unuseful soap dispenser that was designed all wrong.
