MDESIGN 2018 successfully launched

MDESIGN 2018: Neue Berechnungsmöglichkeiten, verbesserte Benutzeroberfläche und vieles mehr

The latest MDESIGN 2018 version, which is available since March this year, is being received very well - from customers as well as from new users. More than 350 service customers already have download MDESIGN 2018 from the customer forum. Extended application possibilities, an improved usability and accelerated engineering processes - all this is possible thanks to the new calculation methods and the developed, modern user interface of MDESIGN 2018. In particular the innovative 3D assistant, the CAD interface (MDESIGN connect), additional types of bearing and the possibility to calculate ball screws have a strong appeal.

Verification according to FKM Guideline fully integrated

The new library MDESIGN technology not only includes a comprehensive material database but also a powerful tool for the comfortable and efficient performance of static as well as dynamic strength assessments according to the FKM Guideline "Analytical Strength Assessment of Components". Welded and non-welded are taken into consideration.

Reliable assessment of bolts and bolt patterns

The proven library MDESIGN bolt for the calculation of highly stressed bolted joints according to VDI 2230 part 1 has been supplemented by new calculation methods according to Eurocode 3. All the advantages regarding the transparency and the documentation now also apply for these verifications.

Due to the complete revision of the MDESIGN multibolt calculation library, users benefit from significantly expanded application possibilities: Extensive selection options for flanges and attached geometries (e.g. round flange plates, rectangular and triangular plates) are now available. The innovative 3D assistant enables fast and detailed modelling of multi bolted joints. In addition, different bolt patterns are available, which can be individually adapted.

Calculation and design of gears made easy

MDESIGN gear provides users a powerful tool for calculating gears. In addition to the well-known calculations according to DIN and ISO, standard-compliant geometrical and load-capacity tests for plastic spur gears (VDI 2736) as well as strength proofs for bevel and hypoid gears in accordance with ISO, AGMA and DNV can now be performed in a time-saving manner. A further module offers the possibility to calculate the tooth root load-bearing capacity of internal gearings with the influence of gear rims. And finally, the proof of the micro-pitting load bearing capacity for spur gear teeth can be provided professionally within a very short period of time.

All customers with a valid software maintenance agreement can download MDESIGN 2018 free of charge in the customer forum.
