Acuity’s roots in the CAD/CAM business began in 1984 with the introduction of CADKey, the first true 3D mechanical design software that ran on personal computers. Overnight the cost-of-entry for a mechanical design workstation fell from an average $100,000 to under $20,000. This opened the door for smaller-than fortune 100 companies to benefit from this emerging technology to substantially improve their product design and engineering efforts.
As the range of engineering automation tools has expanded over the years to include simulation, manufacturing, quality control and data management, Acuity’s team has participated, gaining a deep understanding and broad experience on how best to implement and leverage these tools for our customers.
Most recently we have added the exciting new areas of Computer Aided Innovation and IP Management, again bringing advanced technology developed in conjunction with the world’s best product development companies worldwide into a scope that benefits smaller progressive enterprises.
Now, with well over 25 years’ experience aiding companies through substantial process improvements, which include the use of leading-edge computer-based tools, Acuity continues its tradition providing best-in-class services and products to the most innovative and forward-thinking enterprise’s product design and manufacturing organizations.
