How Cadline helped Husqvarna take control
Husqvarna chose to work with Autodesk Platinum Partner, Cadline, to support it in using the Autodesk software and to provide training on the software. The challenge for Husqvarna was that historically it outsourced much of its tooling work to third parties, but it was running into delays with timelines not being met and the cost of outsourcing electrodes, including associated transport charges. All this meant Husqvarna was incurring significant expenses on an ongoing basis and the approach was also causing issues with project timelines. To address these concerns, it decided to invest in a Hurco VMX Series- 3 Axis Performance CNC Machine and to bring its tooling capabilities in-house.Download the full Customer Success Story
