"If you Think it, We can Build it!" That's exactly the reputation earned by
Schweiss Doors. However that means tremendous flexibility in the design
and manufacture of both bifold and 1-piece hydraulic doors. Most
manufacturers shy away from responding to the customer's unique demands.
It's easier to set up the "cookie cutter" assembly process.
But not the Schweiss Door Team. Early on they decided to listen to their customers, and potential customers. The Schweiss crew simply decided that the Customer Drives the Deal! And if that means a door design never done before, so be it. They juggled computer driven templates, metal cutting equipment, even welding dynamics as needed to create special doors for special needs. They put Cutting-Edge Technology to Work!
Each door is custom fit to each project, be it a hangar door for Fly-In
Homes, a 135' wide door for Corporate Aviation needs, "window-wall" doors
for equestrian centers, a special function bifold for the Guthrie Theater,
architecturally designed garage doors for private homes, huge bifolds for
huge agricultural shops, and literally hundreds of "different" doors for
thousands of airport hangars across America, and other parts of the world.
Good doors start with good engineering. The CAD 2007, called AutoCad, was pretty much the engineering blueprint for doors originally. But with AutoCad, engineers had to redraw the entire door for each new unit. Cumbersome and time consuming at best.
NOW, Even Better Cutting-Edge Technology. SolidWorks is the newest in
computer programs for drafting and designing Schweiss doors. SolidWorks is
a tremendous time saver for Schweiss engineers. Plus this newer technology
virtually eliminates production errors. This new system keeps delivery
within a much tighter time frame. It designs even more structural strength
into Schweiss doors; important because airplane hangar doors must withstand
winds up to 150 mph in various locations around the world.
Being able to visualize in 2D and 3D, SolidWorks technology bridges the gap between engineers and end-users as to the looks and function of new door systems via a laptop computer. Also SolidWorks automates changes in a special design, again reducing those small errors which could be costly later.
Nothing like the 'real thing' when you're doing presentations at trade shows
throughout the nation. SolidWorks tools lets the Schweiss team generate
real working models of Schweiss bifold and/or hydraulic doors. Customers
can touch it, feel it, kick it, push a button and watch it function.
The bottom line: There's a reason why Schweiss is #1 in the bifold marketing world. SolidWorks gives this team even more flexibility, and even better products. So go right ahead: Think it and Schweiss will Build it. Cutting-Edge Technology drives the Schweiss Team.
