COMPUTERIZED GASKET LAYOUT & FABRICATION
WHAT IS GASKCADD ?
GASKCADD is a software program designed specifically for industrial gasket fabricators, to enhance product quality and improve productivity in layout / cutting operations. GASKCADD is Windows PC based and delivered as an add-in to General CADD Pro, a full-featured 2-D drafting package. The software was designed / developed by practicing mechanical engineers that fully understand the intricacies and needs of gasket fabricators.
WHY USE GASKCADD ?
Lower your production / layout time, thus decreasing labor cost, while increasing your profit margin. Provide your customers with precise gaskets with a "high-tech" image. Payback on the system has been reported to be as short as 6-8 months.
FEATURES OF GASKCADD :
GASKCADD runs as an add-in to General CADD Pro, 100% compatible with XP, Vista or Windows 7 operating systems. It is very "user-friendly", not requiring people to be "CADD-literate". It includes a customized user interface, allowing direct access to many features specifically tailored for gasket layout and fabrication. These include:
- "Basic Shapes" Rectangle, Ring, Oval (Ellipse), Obround, Diamond & Pear
- Heat Exchanger Shapes: 21 standard shapes per Lamons nomenclature
- Miscellaneous Shapes: Valve Bonnet & Thermostat
- Special Constructions: Bolt Circle, Rectangular Bolt Pattern, Dovetail, Multi-Dovetail & Holetab connections (for segmented gaskets)
- ASME B16.21 Standard Gaskets: All 400+ of the non-metallic flat gaskets of the ASME standard for ASME B16.5, B16.47A, B16.47B, B16.1, B16.24 & MSS SP-51 flanges
It can be used in conjunction with knife cutting, water jet and other automated cutting equipment via the industry standard ' DXF' file format. Additional utility operations such as cut-length, sheet layout and others make this a complete package to give the user "immediate payback". Another benefit of the software is the capability to make a drawing of the customers gasket and FAX or e-mail them the sketch for verification before an expensive sheet of material is cut.
BENEFITS OF GASKCADD :
The engineers developed the software working closely with gasket fabricators on industry specific problems, making this software very applicable to your day-to-day operations. It will be utilized regularly, thus making the initial payout a minimal expense. A "great bang for the buck"!!
