Software simplifies preparation of factory layouts

Paul Boughton

CAD Schroer Group (CSG) will be introducing MPDS4 Factory Layout with Mechanical Handling at the PPMA Show, which takes place in Birmingham, UK, from 30 September to 2 October 2008.

 The package was developed specifically to address the needs of turnkey installation providers and those maintaining their own large process plants, by offering easy 2D to 3D sales configuration, all the way through to full project engineering. PPMA visitors can benefit from a special time-limited offer, saving 35 per cent on the license price.

MPDS4 Factory Layout enables users to produce winning proposals or process plant layouts based on existing CAD data, with impressive 3D visualisations and walk-through. Changes can be made in 2D or 3D on the fly, and all data from the pre-sales or inception phase can be reused during the main project phase. The new MPDS4 Mechanical Handling discipline included in the package offers a series of configurable catalogue components, which can be physically interconnected to form part of an industrial process. From conveyor belts to cranes to fork lift trucks, installation designers can now easily select, lay out, configure, visualise and add intelligence to process machinery in their plant. The module also supports the controlled creation of product specials.

Visitors to the PPMA Show can see the software in action and secure their 35 per cent discount by visiting CAD Schroer on stand G14.
