Featuring 3-D computer aided design (CAD) output,
live flow evaluation and integrated flow data, the updated Swagelok develops complete process analyzer
and sample-handling systems. The program provides engineers with an interactive
tool to build and assemble ANSI/ISA 76.00.02-compliant miniature modular designs
prior to the purchase process.
features integrated flow data such as flow coefficient (Cv), volumetric flow rate and volume for a wide variety
of fluids. Then, users can simulate valve actuation to see how the flow reacts.
Flow streams are color-coded for easy evaluation. Component selection features Swagelok MPC components and
the ability to use custom components when creating a system.
From the configurator,
engineers can create several types of reports to support their design. The
software generates 2-D design schematics (P&ID view exportable through
AutoCADÂ® 2010), a 3-D real view (exportable to SolidWorks), and/or a bill of
materials (BOM) for purchasing. A project report feature also provides a BOM
and assembly diagrams package. All outputs can be saved to the user's local
full MPC Configurator is available to customers in two ways: as an executable
program download or as a CD installation (MS-21-38) through an
authorized sales and service center.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
