Misumi 3D CAD library free to machine designers
Misumi 3D CAD Model library
Misumi has announced that the Misumi 3D CAD Model library in CD-ROM format is available free of charge to machine builders, automation-system designers and product-design engineers.
The compact discs contain native CAD drawings of thousands of mechanical components offered in Misumi's 2009 catalogue.
The two-CD set provides users with a fast and convenient way to download native CAD drawings of Misumi components to their PC and import them into various CAD applications.
Misumi's online 3D CAD Configurator is suitable for design engineers that regularly source Misumi's configurable and custom-designed components for their projects.
With this tool, engineers can configure a part to precise tolerances and specifications - including critical dimensions, material and surface treatments - and download the native CAD file of the component into the assembly model.
Once finalised, they can enter the order using Misumi's Web Ordering system and input a part number, which will then become a purchased item and stored by that part number for future orders.
Aerotech has developed a line of materials, bearings, magnetics, electronics, feedback devices, motion controllers and software to meet the requirements of the nanotechnology industries.
EPLAN Harness proD is a professional 3D tool connecting the data from mechanical and electrical construction systems within a single system to allow the efficient development of a wire harness in 3D.
Bürkert, a manufacturer of control and measuring systems for fluids and gases, uses an international network of Systemhaus facilities to take requests from customers and develop them into finished products locally. According to the company, its development engineers can pool resources and knowledge in order to solve problems at the Systemhaus design and development hubs.
Delcam will demonstrate the latest release of its Powershape Pro software for design, modelling for manufacture and reverse engineering at the Develop3D Live conference and exhibition, to be held at Warwick University on 15 April. The 2014 R2 release includes a range of functionality for the design of products and tooling. In particular, it introduces powerful new tools to make re-engineering complex parts from scanned data faster and easier.
According to EPLAN, productivity is the lifeblood of organisations and often a revolutionary change is needed instead of just small process improvements. To this end, this white paper focuses on how a change in CAE systems — to one that creates a new paradigm for structuring workflows — can bring individual and business-wide productivity to an entirely new level.
