ABB Automation Products business unit in Västerås, Sweden designs and produces large and powerful DC motors for major industrial applications. The output power of such motors actually ranges from 30 KW to 1400 KW!
The Research & Development Department of the DC Motors division is currently developing a new generation of larger DMI motors. They use the CAD software package SolidWorks and its Gold Certified electromagnetic Add-in, EMS, from ElectroMagneticWorks to optimize their design. With the help of these powerful design tools, they aim to develop powerful DC machines. Such machines will achieve output power and torque significantly higher and more compact than any DC motors available on the market today.
Efacec – the largest Portuguese Group in the field of electricity – is present in more than 65 countries, employs around 4500 people and its turnover has already exceeded 1 billion Euros. The portfolio of Efacec's business activities includes: Energy, Transformers, Switchgear, Servicing of Energy, Engineering, Automation, Renewable Energy & Transportation…
“…The EMS software package has been a great asset to Efacec Power Transformers. The user interface is easy to understand allowing for fast setup and processing of thermal models. The accurate results have helped us make better decisions on material use for reducing cost”…
Dunlee is a division of Philips Healthcare. Dunlee is the World Leader in the Design, Manufacture and Distribution of CT and Radiographic X-Ray Products. The company used EMS and SolidWorks in the design of X-Ray sources. We received the following quote from Mark:
“EMWorks electrostatic analysis interfaces well with Solidworks to quickly design and optimize high voltage x-ray sources.”
Since the founding of Japan Lifeline in 1981, we have focused on Japanese cardiac treatment developments and have accumulated extensive know-how in this field.
At the same time we have fostered a strong business as a cardiovascular-system-related medical equipment specialist trading company.
Presently, cases of cardiac disease (heart related illnesses) are on the rise, and this disease is rated among the three major causes of death along with cancer and cerebrovascular disease. On the other hand, advances are being made in treatment technique and early discovery technique. Many cardiac diseases that were once thought of as difficult to treat are now considered to be treatable.
"Using the electromagnetic software package EMS, we developed optimal catheters faster and at a lower cost with a minimum number of physical prototypes. As a result, we brought our products faster to market. We could not have done it without EMS."
For more than 30 years, Pfiffner has been developing rotary transfer systems of the highest precision and flexibility. Thanks to our meticulous spirit of inventiveness, solution-oriented practice and unparalleled knowledge of the market, Pfiffner has today become a world-leading partner of the most innovative industries and has established itself as one of the largest independent machine tool manufacturers in the whole of Switzerland.
For about 2 years we are using EMS, mostly for electrical field calculation in high voltage equipment. Also we are a very young company; we personally have a long time experience using finite element software. To get familiar with EMS, I have had a web seminar. Some hours on some days were enough to start up. The support during the “learning time” by the EMS Team was very good. Now I’m an experienced user, phone calls with the service team become more and more seldom.
What’s the extract?
* EMS is well structured; the use is intuitive and logical.
* It works together with Solid Works without problems.
* The output (reports and pictures) is clear and in very good quality.
* Very good support.
Conclusion: Highly recommended
