Hydraulic Integrated Circuits (HIC) is the technology of choice for designers of compact, efficient and reliable systems. Manifold design software provides unsurpassed advantages, recognized and implemented across the industry. After more than two decades of supplying Automation Studio™ to the industry, Famic Technologies Inc. has developed a software solution that addresses the entire workflow of screw-in cartridge valve block manifolds, reducing time and expenses.
Automation Studio™ Live Manifold is streamlined to quickly and correctly propose and implement systems. From quoting to final design, Automation Studio™ Live Manifold reduces processing times and produces a better final product quality.
The library is organized by component categories. It is displayed in the same format as the manufacturers' catalogues to quickly identify the desired components. A quick search feature facilitates component selection. Nominal values are already listed, reducing editing time. It also provides product configuration tools for all components in order to quickly obtain a price and minimize errors.
Dialog boxes specific to each product and vendor include a set of comprehensive drop-down menus, listing all compatible products for easy selection.Users have instant access to the PDF product specification datasheets, defined schematic information and engraving instructions.Adjustable dialog boxes reduce library search time when reconfiguring a product. Global parameter guidelines are consigned to a project, saving time during product configuration.
Exporting DXF schematics allows users to incorporate circuits into their own projects.Transfer all 3D elements into one folder, facilitating quicker mechanical designs.Send 3D designs to another mechanical software to finalize plans and then re-import them for final project archiving.
Open multiple projects simultaneously and share information to speed up the design process. Track changes and improve communication between all parties involved in the project
The “Print Report” function create a PDF output with all project details: complete bill of materials, 3D data and layout, manifold constraints, revision history, warnings regarding project completeness and components, prices, etc.Each step is validated as users are methodically guided through the development process.
Easily drag and drop components onto a virtual block for immediate validation, to modify options, to set locations and angles, to assign counterbores, etc.Lock components to specific faces or positions to illustrate constraints. Cavity and component collisions are immediately highlighted with placement possibilities.Export 3D blocks to your preferred mechanical design solution via XML (ProE, Solidworks, Inventor, etc.).
Simulate schematics for prototype testing. Component properties allow for functional block testing, saving costly errors at the early stage of block manifold design and prototyping.Use full colour 3D animations for demonstrations, to promote business and to help save money.
