About A.J. Wells & Sons Ltd - Charnwood
A J Wells & Sons Ltd, was founded in 1972 and is a privately owned, family controlled, British company that specialises in the design and manufacture of high quality stoves; manufactures vitreous enamel products and imports fair trade tiles and pumice chimneys. Run by second and third generations of the family, they are dedicated to providing products of lasting design and of the highest quality.
Having spent several years designing in 2D CAD Charnwood were looking for a 3D CAD package which would help them improve their designs. Specifically they wanted to gain a better understanding of how the finished products would look, whilst speeding up their overall design process.
Charnwood are now able to use SOLIDWORKS in conjunction with their CNC machines enabling them to automate much of their prototyping process. The company also produce instruction manuals and technical drawings for the stoves. They have purchased SOLIDWORKS Composer which will enable them to produce views of their designs from live models.
