EPLAN pioneers fluid design with new software solution
30 November 2016
Engineers can improve the efficiency of their hydraulic, pneumatic, lubrication and cooling designs with EPLAN Fluid, a complete engineering automation solution created specifically for fluid power engineering.
Developed by EPLAN, EPLAN Fluid is a timesaving engineering tool for the automated design and documentation of circuits in fluid power installations. It complies fully with key current standards such as ISO1219-2 and comes with intelligent functions and automatic features that allow users to complete projects much faster and produce higher quality documentation than they can by using conventional CAD tools.
EPLAN Fluid represents the latest generation of fluid engineering design software, which can be integrated in the MCAD workflow, and combines tried and tested fluid system planning and new 3D technology. “This means that components that have been placed in the fluid circuit diagram, such as valves or cylinders, can be assembled in 3D and put onto back plates using a simple method that is similar to the building block principle,” explains Ken Christie, EPLAN UK Director.
“Users do not need in-depth 3D knowledge, and the 2D derivations and manufacturing drawings are created automatically as part of the documentation. Valuable manufacturing information such as the amount of installation space required, number of drill holes or hose lengths is therefore available at an early stage.”
Promoting design standardisation, this modern software solution lets fluid engineers save and re-use frequently used subsystems in the form of macros directly in the planning phase. This means that specialist knowledge is retained, and can be retrieved at any time. It also speeds up planning and safeguards quality throughout all disciplines.
