Managing information effectively is vital during demanding design work.
Transtech uses Autodesk Inventor as their design tool and during the spring adopted Sovelia and Autodesk Vault programs for information management. Transtech is a leading European manufacturer of rolling stock with special skills for the production of double deck passenger coaches and low-floor trams.
– Production of the aluminium bodies of the
coaches is one of Transtech’s top areas of
expertise. Welding aluminium is far more
demanding than welding steel since, for
example, both ends of the coaches have to
have impact absorbing zones. The coaches
are simulated for impacts, tested in a wind
tunnel and require official approval

A Fluent implementation project
Mr Hermonen has been responsible for the implementation of the new system on the Transtech side. The implementation within a tight schedule has proved to be fluent compared to many other projects on the same scale, thanks to Symetri’s expertise based on long experience with similar projects.
