Leveraging legacy data
Aquasub Engineering uses NX™ software from Siemens PLM Software to ensure that it continues to meets customers’ requirements, in spite of an increasing workload. The company uses NX for both computeraided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM).

One of the reasons NX was chosen was its ability to work with data created in other CAD systems, including the company’s own legacy data. “The NX digital product development solution from Siemens PLM Software gave us the option of transferring all of our history,” says N. Purushottama, general manager of the foundry at Aquasub Engineering. “We are using our legacy 2D drawings with NX for developing pump designs in 3D. The ability to reuse our legacy data saves design time.”
