Imagine, Create and Innovate with SOLIDWORKS and Matsuura

Over that last several years we have seen manufacturing come to the forefront of a lot of discussions in the world of design. With the addition of tools like SOLIDWORKS CAM and DELMIAWORKS IQMS products, more and more companies are starting to bring manufacturing and prototyping closer to the design and simulation process. But how do these companies and users learn about new technology available today? Technology moves so fast, and it seems that there is a new process developed daily? How can I see processes work together so that I know what I am buying works seamlessly? If you read the brochure, everyone sells a perfect solution, and it is all you will ever need but how do you know for sure?

Those are the million-dollar questions companies go through every day, and it usually involves lots of investigation and communication with multiple salespeople and vendors. With the CNC machine market expected to reach $100.9 billion by 2025, there are more options than ever before to find the right machine and process for your manufacturing needs.

If you had a chance to attend SOLIDWORKS World 2019, you probably stopped by the Shop floor to get a glimpse into how several technologies can be implemented into a seamless design and manufacturing workflow. If you didn’t get  chance to check it out at the show, take a moment and the videos below to see how SOLIDWORKS integrates with the manufacturing process.


As technology evolves, it becomes more important to see how these processes work together to enhance and improve manufacturing workflows. One of our partners from the Shop floor at SOLIDWORKS World 2019 is doing just that. Matsuura USA has an open house at their facility in St. Paul, MN to show companies how this integration works first hand. They will have several machines up and running along with partners showing how to design and manufacturing flow seamlessly together. If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the shop floor, this event would be a great one to stop at and chat with us about design and manufacturing. You may even see some of the components from the shop floor being machined live!

For more information on the event check out the events page at and look for the SOLIDWORKS Booth during the event to stop in and learn more about the design through the manufacturing process. You can also register here
