Metso Enters into Global License Agreement with Autodesk

By DE Editors

Metso, a global technology and services provider, is using software from Autodesk Inc. Metso Paper has entered into a global license agreement with Autodesk, making the software available to Metso users throughout the organization. The agreement incorporates a broad spectrum of Autodesk products, including Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Navisworks, AutoCAD Mechanical and AutoCAD Electrical software.

One benefit of the global license for Metso is reduced cost of ownership, according to the company. Metso sites can now request additional software licenses at peak times, as well as get access to these solutions when they are required. Metso sites only pay for what they use. Metso currently has more than 3,000 Autodesk software users, logging 180,000 usage hours per month. The company has clocked more than 4 million CAD hours using Autodesk software to date.

The Metso Mining and Construction Technology Segment (MCT), also known as Metso Minerals, has also decided to focus on Autodesk Inventor 3D mechanical design and engineering software. Metso Minerals currently uses Inventor software for product development, conceptual design and manufacturing, and anticipates usage will increase for more detailed design work.
