Aveva acquires IDO software from iDesignoffice
Aveva has acquired iDesignoffice, a technology company based in Melbourne, Australia, bringing IDO software to its portfolio.
Instrumentation Design Office (IDO) is a suite of integrated applications for creating and maintaining instrumentation engineering data for process plants.
IDO will be renamed Aveva Instrumentation and will be available as a stand-alone product or as part of an integrated suite with other Aveva products.
Aveva, a provider of engineering design solutions for the plant, power and marine industries, has released the first 64-bit versions of its visualisation and design communication technologies.
Delcam will demonstrate the latest software releases from its development team at a special open house to be held at the DMG-MORI showroom in Coventry on 6–7 May.
Nowadays, it is important to optimise the efficiency of power transformers to make sure minimum losses are generated from the various physical phenomena. Finite element studies allow the transformer designers to accurately analyse the different losses to enhance the performance of their transformers. A few steady-state and transient tests allow the user to determine the electrical and mechanical constraints that the power transformer will have to endure in its life.
Delcam has added a number of new options for reverse engineering to its PowerSHAPE Pro software for the design of products and tooling. The 2015 R2 release of the software also includes improvements to speed up and simplify the editing of product designs to make them more suitable for manufacture.
This case study from IDAC discusses the Optical Science Laboratory’s project to design and build of the High Resolution Optical Spectrograph (HROS).
