About Fuelwood Ltd
Since 1997, U.K. based Fuelwood has developed machinery which converts lumber into firewood and kindling suitable for consumers looking for more affordable and potentially more eco-friendly ways to heat their homes. Its machines can cut logs measuring 20 feet long and 14 inches in diameter into foot-long rounds to be split into eight pieces in a matter of minutes.
To reduce steel costs by minimizing waste from inaccurate designs.
"SOLIDWORKS helped Fuelwood Ltd lower materials and prototyping costs, reduce development time and design better products. The design validation tool plays a crucial role in helping the company ensure its machines withstand rigorous, constant use whilst maintaining high safety standards. SOLIDWORKS Simulation helps engineers analyse stress areas on the frame and identify bending points to ensure structural stability."
