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.
The Strati EV car printed at IMTS is made of SABIC's LNP STAT KON AE003. SABIC tells Design News why this carbon fiber-reinforced compound was chosen by Local Motors and Oak Ridge National Laboratories.
The 2014 Ig Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Dr. Kiyoshi Mabuchi and his team members for their work measuring the slipperiness of banana peels. Turns out they're slipperier with the yellow side up.
Many scientists have been working battery-free ways to power wearable electronics that can replace bulky battery packs, particularly through the use of energy-harvesting materials. Now a team of researchers in China have upped the game by developing a lightweight and flexible solar cell that can be woven into two-way energy-harvesting fabric.
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.
