Bladon Micro Turbine’s team of 10 SolidWorks designers was using product data management (PDM) and looking to upgrade. This pioneer in the design, development and manufacture of micro turbines chose Teamcenter to manage SolidWorks data and processes.

“The core reason for Teamcenter was its quick, out-of-the-box solution … and the initial focus was to replace our PDM system with a PLM system that can grow.”
