Press Release Summary:

CAE Software integrates fluid engineering, mechanical design.

Jul 16, 2012 - Fostering design standardization, Eplan Fluid lets fluid engineers save and re-use frequently used subsystems as macros. This accelerates engineering while safeguarding quality. Together with electrical engineering, workflow helps reduce errors and lets engineer focus on selection and dimensioning of components, fluid system connections, and correct positioning. Fluid symbols, 3D data, and electrical actuation are directly linked to parts list and technical specifications of equipment.

Eplan Fluid Professional: Integrated Engineering with Mechanical System Design

Press release date: Jul 05, 2012

Standardization simplifies the process

Fluid engineers can standardize their engineering design using Eplan Fluid, and save and re-use frequently used subsystems in the form of macros directly in the designing. Specialist knowledge is therefore retained and can be retrieved at any time. This speeds up engineering and safeguards quality throughout all disciplines. Together with electrical engineering, the workflow also provides an opportunity to avoid costly errors, particularly in view of the increasing complexity of mechatronic components such as valve islands.

The know-how of the fluid engineer is therefore used where it is needed: during the selection and dimensioning of components, the fluid system connections and their correct positioning. Aspects such as hose lengths, heat generation, energy efficiency, mechatronic interaction and reducing installation space can be calculated at an early stage in this multi-disciplinary workflow.

Summary: The benefits for the engineer are obvious: 3D data, fluid symbols and electrical actuation are directly linked to the parts list and the technical specifications of the equipment. The result: engineering and documentation costs are reduced.
