Matachana On the Rise with 3D Design Tools
As a world-leader in Sterilization Systems to the Healthcare and Life Science industries, Matachana pays attention to the challenges that their customer’s face in integrating new equipment into their workspace. As such, Matachana has invested heavily in their 3D modelling and engineering offering to assist clients in selecting the right equipment and designing workspaces that maximize utility while reducing cost and schedule to completion.
3D models can be used as a tool for collaboration and communication during conceptual phases through detailed engineering. Matachana’s models help to illuminate client ideas, and they help to explain how Matachana’s sterilizers and solutions fit into a given space and what impact (space, floor loading, clash detection, heat-loads,…) the equipment has. In addition, 3D models aid in relaying detailed, technical information to plant operations and maintenance personnel (to address accessibility for example) before any work at the site begins.
“These tools are really paying dividends for our customers and the A&E firms we work with to reduce project complexity and beyond providing a visually appealing sales tool, they really work to a large extent in mitigating risk in the field when the bulk of project rework has typically taken place.” says David Mitchell, Technical Sales Director for STEQ America.
For this reason, Matachana makes all their standard autoclave configurations available in a Revit* model format for download for Engineers and Architects to integrate into their Building Information Management (BIM) models. Furthermore, should a client have an area they wish to envision seeing their autoclave or washer installed, Matachana can take a standard AutoCAD* drawing and create a 3D model of the entire area that will allow the customer to see, in a virtual environment, their proposed solution.
Ultimately, the intelligent programs we at Matachana use are more accurate then 2D drawings and can help our customers avoid costly errors and rework by identifying issues in advance.
