Programming skills open up a world of opportunity. Beside it being the core skill to shape our platform it allows us to automate other tasks as well such making technical drawings, PDF reports and 3D models.
The online tools that are created primarily revolve around technical products. In this context, it is essential that the tools are not only user-friendly, but that the outcomes are also logical, meaningful, and of high quality. The objective is, after all, to develop tools that guide customers towards products that are not only safe and feasible to manufacture but also economically viable to sell.
Each product has its own set of prerequisites that the tool must adhere to. These prerequisites stem from criteria such as strength, stiffness, usability, manufacturability, and sustainability. Overall, it presents a challenging puzzle that we willingly embrace. Many of us have a background in classical engineering and possess experience in addressing this issue through FEM modeling, strength analysis, and various types of computational methods.
Throughout the design process, we meticulously document our steps. Each tool is substantiated with an accompanying document titled 'Structural Principles.' This document encompasses all the principles and technical information for future reference. For instance, this proves advantageous when your company undergoes an external audit.
If there is a lack of product information regarding strength and stiffness, physical testing can provide the solution. We have the capability for in-house testing up to 100 kN (10,000 kg). Tensile, compression, bending, and low-cycle fatigue tests can be conducted.
In addition to collecting test data, we possess the expertise to translate this data into design values that meet Eurocode safety standards. This enables us to continue refining innovative products into dependable online tools.
