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.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
