Using 3D CAD the engineering teams at Clear Stream Environmental have improved efficiency by 25 per cent - making more water drinkable

Water is important, but we don’t have much of it: With the earth covered by around 71 per cent water, 2.5 per cent is drinkable, with only one per cent easily accessible, the rest frozen in glaciers and ice fields.

Droughts and pollution don’t help this matter, although water treatment technology is constantly developing to meet this essential human need.

Clearstream Environmental has been challenging the usual development approaches as it aims to create future water treatment equipment, using its entire SolidWorks suite on the problem.

Stage Technologies used EPLAN tools to design 80 axes of automation - including Willie Wonka’s glass elevator - for the West End production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

As anyone who has been to a West End production recently will vouch - the set up on stage is pretty impressive in its complexity. The motorised rigging offers fast changeover, not to mention the highest levels of safety.

Stage Technologies is a global engineering company that supplies just such complex stage automation projects to the live entertainment industry.

It makes use of EPLAN’s CAE tools to design control cabinet layouts, which in turn control the electrical equipment that interfaces with the control software. The scale of designs can be huge, requiring numerous control cabinets for one project.
