A new 3D solid model generator, developed by electric actuator manufacturer AUMA, enables customers to generate three dimensional actuator models that replicate their exact, order-specific, configurations. The free service, which allows actuator models to be reviewed from all perspectives before delivery, provides advance verification of actuator requirements during a plant’s design phase.
Complete actuator systems are shown by the 3D models, with all elements detailed including integrated controls, gearbox, and electrical connection. Models can be generated for AUMA SA multi-turn and SQ part-turn actuators with AC and AM integrated controls, plus GS part-turn gearboxes. The service will be extended later in 2014, with the addition of further AUMA components.
The solid models take up minimal file size and can be integrated directly into the customer’s CAD environment. All outer dimensions are automatically included, enabling checks to ensure accurate integration and full compatibility with other plant components.
The easy-to-use app requires just the AUMA order, or quotation number, to generate a
customer-specific actuator model. The models can be generated in the widely adopted CAD file formats SAT, IGES, STEP and PDF.
