MDESIGN explorer: User interface for engineers

MDESIGN explorer

User interface for engineers

Everyone knows: when you need specific information to solve a design problem, this is generally not directly accessible. The user interface, the MDESIGN explorer, contains a wealth of answers centrally in a single location: calculation libraries, formulae, material properties or manufacturers’ specifications. Here, the modern and intuitive design guarantees that you’ll find what you’re looking for quickly.

MDESIGN mechanical: Time-saving calculation, optimisation and dokumentation of more than 50 machine elements

MDESIGN mechanical

Unique scope of calculation

While conventional design tools often only perform calculations for individual machine elements, MDESIGN offers you a unique set of features. Because with MDESIGN mechanical, you can already design, check, optimise and document more than 50 different machine elements with efficient use of time and in compliance with the standards.

MDESIGN technology: Durability Approval In Accordance With the FKM Directive

MDESIGN technology

Strength assessment according to FKM

The arithmetical proof of strength for machine components according to FKM guideline presents challenges for users owing to the cross-part applicability, for example. Produce proofs of strength in accordance with the directive for welded and non-welded components in a short space of time with MDESIGN technology. You can also access a comprehensive materials database.

MDESIGN bolt: Bolted joints easly and standard-compliantly calculated


Simply standard-compliant bolt calculation

Verification management for bolts in accordance with recognised standards and directives is becoming increasingly important – to both customers and testing organisations.
