TADANO FAUN Accelerates Its Design Processes with HyperWorks

Designing mobile cranes, with countless possible configurations, can be a
mind-bending experience for Tadano Faun GmbH engineers. The Japanese-owned
company, headquartered near Nuremberg, Germany, is one of the world’s leading
manufacturers of cranes that lift equipment at construction sites. Ensuring that these
cranes — each with as many as eight axles — have the flexibility that contractors need can
present substantial engineering challenges.
