Zehn Mythen der numerischen Strmungssimulation

Wir räumen mit zehn gängigen Mythen auf, die häufig als Ausrede dafür dienen, universelle CFD-Software nicht für die Lösung von Navier-Stokes-Gleichungen zu verwenden. Außerdem zeigen wir, wie CFD-Software die Produktentwicklung in den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen verbessert – von Swimmingpools über Druckmaschinen bis hin zu Ölfiltern. Dank jüngster Fortschritte bei Benutzerfreundlichkeit und Technologie ist CFD-Software inzwischen schnell und hochgradig präzise – und lässt sich dabei so leicht bedienen, dass sie sogar Einzug in amerikanische High Schools gehalten hat.

When to 3D Print In-House and When to Outsource

This means the design can be communicated easily to customers and business partners, allowing designers to use feedback to quickly iterate the product. Whereas visual prototypes can be used for marketing and sales purposes, functional prototypes can be user-tested and revised to ensure that it fulfills the design intent. 

Once a business decides to begin using this technology, the firm then needs to decide whether it plans to print their prototypes using an outside 3D printing service bureau, in-house using industrial machines, or in-house using desktop 3D printers. 

This six-page whitepaper will teach you:  The differences between service bureaus, industrial 3D printers and desktop 3D printers The pros and cons of each method What questions to ask to decide which 3D printing method is best for your business

Water seal

Engine cooling water pump is the main part of the cooling system of automobile engine. Its function is to force the cooling fluid in the engine to circulate in the cooling system and reduce the influence of high temperature on the engine during the working process of the engine. Water seal is the core of the work of the pump. The movement of the water seal itself is very simple, just rotates with the shaft. . Water seal, pump body and bearing are super-hard matching mechanical seals. This kind of seals is composed of static rings and dynamic rings, which are perpendicular to the shaft, and the smooth and straight surface of each other, and do relative rotation. Coolant movement in the pump is very complex, different types of water seals, using different types of coolant, if the water package is equipped with problems, the engine coolant will appear seepage, then the pump bearing lubrication will be washed away, the entire pump function will be invalid. There are two main types of water seals: one is separated (rotating ring parts and static ring parts are respectively installed on the pump), the other is integrated (rotating ring parts and static ring parts are first installed together, and then installed on the pump), separated water seals are mainly used in larger pumps, now commonly used is integrated water seals.

Virtualization in Industrial Plants

With the cost savings and efficiency of virtualization comes significant risk. Unfortunately, virtualization makes downtime even more damaging and costly. Before virtualization, when one server hosted one application, only one process stopped if that server went down. But with virtualized servers running multiple applications, a crash can negatively affect multiple processes.

Unplanned downtime of Industrial Control Systems; including SCADA, HMI and MES are the #1 enemy of enhanced productivity and higher efficiencies and a major driver of unplanned costs.

Using SIPOC to Define ITIL Processes

This white paper describes a technique for defining processes called SIPOC (Suppliers, Inputs, Process, Outputs, and Customers). SIPOC provides a structured way to define the key elements of any process. SIPOC can be used as a means of defining any of the service management processes presented in ITIL® best practices. Furthermore, SIPOC can be used as the preliminary input into the more formal documentation of a process in one of many process design tools.

UPS Industrial Buying Dynamics Study: Buyers Raise the Bar for Suppliers

Take a deep dive into the minds of the 1,500 U.S. industrial products buyers we surveyed for the third Industrial Buying Dynamics study. The study examines the major forces shaping industrial distribution today. Rising (and Changing) ThreatsIt’s no secret—people’s buying behaviors and preferences are rapidly changing. In this year’s study, we’ve seen important shifts in the influence of mobile e-commerce and the perception of e-marketplaces. Addressing Buyer Needs by Product TypeThis year’s study includes new questions that detail buyers’ needs and preferences based on the types of products they’re purchasing. Optimizing the Buyer ExperienceBuyers continue to demand a user-friendly customer experience across multiple sales and service channels, but a new generation of buyers are poised to demand new and higher expectations. The Potential of Post-sales Service as a DifferentiatorPost-sales capabilities can provide a crucial point of differentiation for distributors. From solid return solutions to additive manufacturing, explore new ways to stand out.

Unlocking Commercial Knowledge: How System-Level Modeling forms the Basis for High-Performance, Low-Risk Designs

After long iterations and expensive prototypes, it seems you’ve got all the kinks out of your design. Weeks later, your system fails in the field for some unknown reason, despite your existing design tools showing no errors. A costly repair is in order, but the underlying problem hasn’t been addressed. How do you track down exactly what went wrong? Recently, a leading industrial automation company found themselves in this exact situation, searching for a solution that would offer a cost-effective fix and prevent similar issues in the future.

The solution they found helped them see the interactions between every mechanism in their robot, and to accurately predict its behavior in the field. While their previous tools modeled the static loading of the robots, the complex motion of the robot arm was giving rise to brief moments of damaging torque for the motors - something their old tools couldn’t model. What was originally a daunting repair program essentially became a software update to tweak the motion of the robot, eliminating the moments where the motors experienced the highest torque. The solution here was made possible by modern tools and an innovative design approach called system-level modeling.

Turn Disruptive Changes Into High Tech's Next Big Thing

New advancements in battery technology are having a disruptive impact on product design in the dynamic consumer electronics sector. It's a domino effect. When a change to a component occurs there's a rapid engineering effort to incorporate, source and purchase the component. Manufacturing line/tooling, cut-ins, as well as the production floor are impacted and then there's dealing with scrap and rework, marketing and servicing. Companies without the vision and solution to respond to change and adopt new technologies quickly could lose in this competitive fast-paced high tech market. Discover how Arena PLM helps product companies shift product direction quickly to turn today's disruptive changes into tomorrow's "Next Big Thing".
