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.
During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
The Window Watcher stops the burglar before he does damage or enters the house. House alarm service companies set off alarms and call the service only after the burglar has damaged and entered the house.
If you’re designing a handheld device or industrial machine that will employ a user interface, then you’ll want to check out the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center course, "Engineering Principles Behind Advanced User Interface Technologies.”
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.
