Infolytica Corporation announces today that MagNet for SolidWorks, an entirely new software package developed by the company, will be officially launched in 2014. SolidWorks® users who need to design and analyze electromagnetic or electromechanical devices can use this new tool directly in their preferred CAD environment.

MagNet for SolidWorks is an entirely new product from Infolytica Corporation which embeds an electromagnetic field simulator as an add-in to Solidworks 2013 or later. It uses the same 3D EM finite element technology that is in the company's MagNet 2D/3D simulation software.

The advantage is a device can be simulated and analyzed with Infolytica's electromagnetic solver technology directly in Solidworks' native solid modeling system without any geometric translation or model import. Using just one environment for modeling and design is both convenient and more efficient for the user.

More details about the first version of MagNet for SolidWorks will be available in the first quarter of 2014. Until then, a web page with some images and other highlights of this new product has been posted on the company's website at http://www.infolytica.com/mfs/.

Pricing and Availability

MagNet for SolidWorks will be released in 2014 and will support SolidWorks 2013 or later. Full pricing and an official release date will be announced in spring 2014. For questions or additional information, please contact an Infolytica Corporation representative nearest you.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
