      This year ac&e will be demonstrating our StruCIM® welding and cutting software at the annual NASCC Steel Conference in Toronto, which takes place over three days from the 26th to 28th of March.

      We’ll be demonstrating how using our StruCIM® cutting software will save you time and money, explaining how its integrated software system drives robotically controlled plasma cutting systems and automates beam and plate cutting for structural steel application.

      You’ll also get the chance to see how the StruCIM® software is highly automated, user friendly and easy to integrate, giving you dramatic throughput improvements.

      Join us at NASCC and see why one of Canada’s top developers of automation for the structural steel industry (CFR of Québec) is now providing robotic cutting solutions powered by our StruCIM® software.

      ac&e directors Yash Khandhia and Anthony Mosquera are to present a paper on Collaborative Engineering Design at the NAFEMS World Congress, Salzburg, Austria,  9th June 2013.

      ac&e’s base on the Sci-Tech Daresbury Campus in Cheshire, places it in the heart of one of the UK’s foremost innovation hubs.  This provides ready access to a pool of world-leading high performance computing resources and technical and commercial expertise.

      In partnership with Campus partners STFC (Science & Technology Facilities Council), one of the UK government’s seven research councils, ac&e are developing a collaborative model for concurrent engineering using the Campus’ powerful infrastructure and access to global science and innovation communities.

      The paper, to be presented at NAFEMS will set out how cloud infrastructure will enable ‘Expert Collaboration as a Service’, bringing together, in one cloud-enabled hub, the resources to deliver game changing solutions to critical design and manufacturing problems.

      ac&e’s ModelCenter® software would sit at the centre of such an initiative, providing a collaborative platform for integrating design applications and codes from multiple partners for multidisciplinary design and analysis.

      The paper will be available after the presentation on 9th June.  To order your FREE copy, please email info@acel.co.uk or telephone +44  0) 1925 606400.

    IT Solutions/Facilities Management

      ac&e are working with Anglian Water to provide local offices with access to waste water modelling capabilities. Previously only possible for HQ modellers, it is hoped the system will enable rapid response at a local level.

      ac&e have set up a dedicated private network that enables engineers in remote offices, to tap into the powerful modelling and visualisation capabilities of the head office computers, using their own internet connected device.

      ac&e have been working with Anglian Water’s Modelling Team to build and maintain a dedicated IT infrastructure for modelling and simulation. The team uses a tailored IT hardware solution for its range of modelling applications, including analysis of 3D flow, biological process, odour dispersion and urban drainage.

      Boyd Miller, Asset Serviceability Modelling Manager at Anglian Water said; “By establishing a dedicated IT infrastructure, ac&e have enabled us to take control of our service, saving time and money running complex models.  The aim of providing remote offices with access to the same system is a logical extension.”

      The project will enable remote offices to run models and access archives of videos visualising the condition of our wastewater systems.

      Following the launch of our partnership with CIARA technologies, ac&e are now offering super-efficient load sharing and fastest ever processing through unique HPC Linux/Windows clusters, servers and workstation solutions. 

      Load Sharing: Now you can cluster your workstations with ac&e’s dedicated software solution which enables you to:

      • Detect and utilise the availability of your workstations’/servers’ resources.

      • Make two or more workstations into a cluster for greater use of resources.

      Speed: The world’s fastest servers & workstations enable you to:

      • Halve your processing time with the best ever performance optimised solutions.

      • Benefit from the power of Intel®’s Turbo Boost Technology, with its 5.0 GHz, liquid cooling system to enable the fastest ever reliable processing.

      These systems are all configured on site by ac&e engineers, with success stories including AMEC, BAE, Anglian Water and EADS.

      To explore the benefits and compare your existing processing capabilities with our high performance solutions, or to arrange a discussion/benchmark with one of our technical experts, please contact alison.wilkinson@acel.co.uk or 01925 606400.
