Automotive

The automotive industry knows the advantage of using the latest design and manufacturing tools. These tools are used around the world to design individual components and to digitally assemble parts from multiple vendors. Ultimately, they lead to efficiently-built cars, truck, buses, motor homes, fire engines, farm equipment, and more.

For the OEM
Idex Solutions has helped automotive manufacturers design their own components, as well as integrate components from their suppliers. We can work under the direction of project and engineering managers to produce a specific design, or we can work from a set of specifications—with little direction from the customer—to deliver completed designs. We have provided support in many areas including:

  • Chassis components
  • Interior trim parts
  • Body panels
  • Wire harnesses
  • Pneumatic and hydraulic assemblies

For the Supplier
Suppliers today face many challenges getting their parts onto customer’s vehicles. Downstream customers are beginning to put more stringent requirements on suppliers—requirements such as providing complete installation designs, providing data in specific CAD formats, and meeting customer dataset release standards. This means your engineers, designers, and system administrators must be pulled from critical tasks to ensure standards are met. It’s often necessary to purchase specific software and hardware in order to do business with one customer.

Idex Solutions offers a simple solution. We work with many OEMs and can provide the specific types of data they require from their vendors. Our in-house design tools can be tailored to match the design environment, allowing us to deliver data that blends seamlessly with your own. This can be the difference that makes you rise above the competition. We can also bring in CAD data from the OEM to assist in designing your component into their products. Completed designs can be delivered to both you and your customer.

Our experience with automotive design offers a cost-effective way to get your engineering data to your customer.

For our Customers using CATIA
We specialize in providing services using CATIA V4 and V5. If you, your supplier, or your customer require data in a specific version of CATIA we can provide this. We will duplicate the CATIA environment that allows us to deliver data that meets customer requirements. Delivered data will meet corporate drafting standards, CATIA modeling standards, release standards, and more.
