HiCut Tools Gains Competitive Advantage by Establishing In-House Product Development Capability Based on NX and Solid Edge
HiCut Tools designs and manufactures custom-made indexable cutting tool holders and inserts for automotive companies, automotive suppliers, oil and gas companies, valve makers and general engineering companies. HiCut Tools had focused on standard offerings, but competition for this market was increasing while the margins associated with delivering these products were steadily being eroded. Faced with these realities, HiCut Tools decided to enter the high-end tool market. To master these challenges HiCut Tools chose Siemens PLM Software. HiCut Tools deployed Solid Edge software and NX software. The company uses NX for CAD and CAM and Solid Edge for making models.
