Knust-Godwin Case Study

Knust-Godwin specializes in high-quality, precision components for complex, downhole instrumentation products for the oil and gas industry.  Like many manufacturers, they are under pressure to make their operations more efficient, and manufacture parts quickly and cost effectively.  Knust-Godwin decided to employ Additive Manufacturing as a layer in their current Subtractive Manufacturing processes to improve their ability to deliver precision parts faster and at a reduced cost.  Traditionally, oil and gas products can take up to 24 months to produce.

Knust-Godwin adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform by Dassault Systémes which provided powerful tools for generative design and simulation all in one place, giving their team the flexibility and power to design efficiently.  The results include:

  • Reduced the product development lead time by 67%; down from 24 months to 8 months for conception to commercialization
  • Reduced post-machining processes from 12 steps to 8 steps
  • Improved team collaboration and knowledge sharing across engineering by streamlining workflows and providing a single source of truth for data management
