    How TriMech Improves Project Communication with 3DEXPERIENCE

    November 17, 2021

    The engineering work we do for our clients is challenging, exciting and fulfilling. The projects we tackle come from a variety of industries, and even though the team is highly experienced in our focused areas – mechanical design, scanning, simulation, etc., we often find ourselves facing specific applications that are highly specialized and often new. It’s never “Groundhog Day”, and that’s both exciting and cautioning. With engineering projects so unique, we need some serious tools to help communicate with, and understand, our clients needs.

    SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation - Should I Buy, Outsource or Both?

    August 18, 2021

    SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is an extremely powerful tool. It puts the power of Computations Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the hands of the designers and engineers who are responsible for developing products and components, allowing them to test their product’s fluid flow and thermal performance early in the design phase. Changes made here are far less costly than changes made after the prototype or final product is produced.

    If you are reading this, then it is likely that you are considering adding Flow Simulation to your design tools. It is not an insignificant investment, so you want to make sure it’s the right fit for you and your organization. I want to provide some guidance to help you make that decision.

    It's Too Hot! How to Manage the Heat in Your Designs

    August 10, 2021

    Designing your product to operate at the right temperature can be crucial to its success. Whether you’re creating goods for the consumer market, military applications, industrial machinery, transportation, medical – you name it – the ability of your product to maintain desired temperatures can make or break a product…and your reputation.

    How do you make sure your product can meet its temperature expectations? How do you manage excessive heat in lighting and electronics? How do you design vehicle HVAC systems to keep their occupants comfortable? How do you make sure that your equipment won’t overheat and fail on the plant floor or in the field?

    Understanding Ventilation Strategies for a Safer Manufacturing Floor

    September 14, 2020

    Providing a safe and healthy manufacturing environment is crucial to the well-being of the employees operating the manufacturing floor. Proper ventilation is one of the ways in which you can contribute to their safety. Most of the time, the machinery used in manufacturing floors produces heat, fumes or haze that can have an effect in the productivity of the workers. So, how can you improve the ventilation conditions in your manufacturing floor?

    How to Supplement Your Engineering Team

    April 24, 2020

    Lee Iacocca’s words are truer now than ever before. As designers and engineers our options are to “…lead, follow, or get out of the way.” Across different industries, engineering teams find the resources to innovate at high speed and high quality. So, what do you do when the project at hand exceeds your team’s capacity or expertise or when a new project comes in that takes priority? Company projects can change quickly and sometimes engineers and designers are at full capacity and struggle to manage different projects at the same time. We have a solution for you during times like these. Whether you need to re-engineer a complicated legacy part that never had a CAD model or make sure your components are meeting industry safety standards, TriMech has come up with a specialized solution to help.
