PIPEFAB ME manages the administration, isometric creation and calculation of entire pipe strings. In addition to detachable connections, welded connections, fittings, neckouts and breakouts can also be represented in the drawings and taken into account in the subsequent calculations. A standard catalog with weld fittings and bolting components is included in the scope of delivery. Further component catalogs can be created and entered on a customer-specific basis.
PIPEFAB Master Edition also supports multi-site manufacturing, as different manufacturing sites can be managed, each with their own machinery.
The isometric data as a basis for manufacturing can be generated by input in the ISOINPUT software module or by transferring CAD data or measurement data from various pipe measuring systems. PIPEFAB ME now takes over the entire calculation of the pipe geometry and supplies all the data required for pipe manufacturing in the form of lists or files.
In its entirety, PIPEFAB ME accompanies and manages the entire piping life cycle, from engineering and design to procurement, production, and assembly, to operation, maintenance, and repair of the pipes. In this way, all areas of the “digital chain” are systematically integrated. However, since not every company needs the full scope of services of such an industry solution, the PIPEFAB software has a modular structure and is able to specifically meet the individual requirements for each company.
In interaction with CAD, ERP/MRP, PDM, QA or standard accounting systems, all data and isometrics required for project handling and control are generated, work packages are formed, production times and costs are determined, allowances are calculated and routings are created.
All modules and components of the PIPEFAB product family with their different key requirements are compatible with each other and thus form the basis for the integrated overall solution. The flexible use of the easy-to-operate, practice-oriented application solutions results in a significant reduction of work and time in pipe production, which leads to not inconsiderable cost savings.
