Can machinery be both custom designed and mass produced?

Energy logistics businesses face an energy-constrained, low-carbon future. They increasingly rely on high-quality innovative heavy equipment technology to operate more efficiently, effectively and sustainably.

PT United Tractors Pandu Engineering (UTPE), a subsidiary of the PT United Tractors TBK Group in Indonesia, is one of the largest suppliers of heavy machinery to energy logistics businesses. The company has built a strong reputation on its ability to combine manufacturing and engineering systems with highly advanced technology. This enables it to create heavy machinery products that are reliable, productive, environmentally friendly, fast and delivered on time. Customers particularly value UTPE’s customization options, manufacturing flexibility and the after-sales service guarantees. Adopting and developing cutting-edge technology is therefore critical to the business’s future.

Committed to speeding up product development and building more custom products, UTPE implemented the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to help simplify its design process and centralize its data. This allows designers and engineers to reuse existing designs, collaborate effectively on changes and have better oversight of the company’s growing components and parts library.

Now, engineers can work together with ease on new custom products and handle design modifications quickly using existing design references. They can also share high-quality 3D images with the marketing department to boost ongoing sales.

The biggest business impact of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is in the engineering division. It helps them keep pace with the company’s marketing approach of selling products that are custom designed, but mass produced.
