EPLAN is looking to ensure users get the most from their CAE software

EPLAN is looking to ensure customers of its CAE systems are squeezing all the potential from them with its Experience product’s ‘action fields’ and involvement of qualified consultants.

Having carried out a survey that showed many companies aren’t taking full advantage of the capabilities of their CAE systems, EPLAN Experience looks to gives companies a way to utilise more of the available features.

Comprising of eight ‘action fields’ - modules that can be implemented separately or in almost any combination - Experience offers guidance for IT infrastructure, platform setup, codes and standards, product structure, design methods, workflow, process integration and project management.

Head of GF Machining Solutions Pascal Boillat with EOS founder and CEO Dr. Hans J. Langer, seal the deal with a firm handshake

EOS has entered into a strategic cooperation with Swiss-based industrial company Georg Fischer (GF) Machining Solutions to offer customers solutions combining both companies’ technologies.

The move looks to integrate EOS metals 3D printing machines into GF’s production process of injection moulding inserts, including the necessary software and automation link with downstream machine-tools and measuring devices.

The 3D printing technology is expected to offer customers like GF the possibility to generate metal inserts featuring cooling close to the surface, allowing for a shorter mold cooling sequence and therefore a much faster plastic injection cycle.

AMD is upping the ante in GPU compute with its new FirePro S9170 server GPU that features 32GB of on-board GDDR5 memory. This is double that of its predecessor, the FirePro S9150, and 8GB more than Nvidia’s top end GPU compute board the Tesla K80.

According to AMD, 32GB of memory, coupled with 320GB/s memory bandwidth will enable firms to process larger and more computationally complex workflows than before. This has sometimes been a barrier for using GPUs in High Performance Computing (HPC).

CAMWorks 2015 is ready for Solid Edge ST8

Geometric has readied CAMWorks 2015 for the latest Siemens Solid Edge release, ST8, making it the only fully integrated CAM application running inside Solid Edge at present.

Looking to support a wide variety of CNC machining needs within Solid Edge, in addition to 2-1/2 and 3-Axis milling support, 4 and 5 simultaneous milling and multi-axis Mill Turn machining are all now fully supported.

One of the main benefits Geometric are pushing is that by using CAMWorks inside Solid Edge, the design and manufacturing models become one in the same, with the fully associative tool paths updating automatically to design changes.

Version 12 of scSTREAM has new features for pump design

New upgrades and abilities are now offered in two of Software Cradle’s specialised CFD products, SC/Tetra and scSTREAM, for pumps and electrical heat displacement, respectively.

Version 12 of SC/Tetra, an unstructured grid CFD software contains new features, many designed to optimise pump flow design.

Single pitch shape extraction for centrifugal pumps offers to significantly reduces calculation time and cost, while an optional Smart Blades tool parametrically creates, solves, and post-processes axial fan designs.
