Mastenbroek Ltd serves the cable and pipe laying industries for utility, offshore and agricultural applications across the world. Besides the range of standard and custom-built trenchers and plows, Mastenbroek supplies cable and pipe laying systems, trench backfill machines, tracked gravel trucks, tractor pulled gravel trailers and a range of custom built special machinery.
Mark Taylor, Design Manager at Mastenbroek for over 30 years, reports, “We are always busy and if we are not working on machines in the workshops, we are working on new designs and on prototypes.
“We really are pushing Autodesk Inventor very hard and have always been up there with our use of large models and complex assemblies.
“With the FirePro V5700, everything is very smooth indeed – rotation, panning, zooming. Regeneration speed is a lot faster and the quality of visualisation is a lot better. Not only does the real-time rendered model look better and more convincing, it is easier to see the extent of any projecting external parts.”
