ICAD Assembler from Minitec allows machine builders to plan and cost their machine designs using Minitec’s Profile System and Linear System machine framing and automation component tools.

Users can choose the standalone program mode, requiring no CAD platform or specialist CAD knowledge, or work in combination with their preferred CAD software system.

The free-of-charge software allows straightforward menu selection with drag-and-drop manipulation of individual profiles, connectors and ancillary components with the ability to fully assemble these elements on screen to realise designs for machine frames and complex automated assemblies.

With intelligent selection of suitable connector elements, ICAD Assembler generates rotatable views for each component along with detailed dimensioning and technical specifications including weights.

The software generates parts lists and bills of materials for pricing and provides the designer with more than 50 data output format options in 2D and 3D, which includes AutoCAD, Solidworks, Proengineer, as well as Iges, Step4 and others.

Minitec’s Profile System is a comprehensive machine building system that includes modular aluminium and stainless steel profiles that are assembled using the Powerlock fastening system – a frame connector that requires no special tools or machining other than cutting profiles to the required length and fixing them in place with an Allen key.

A full range of ancillary components available include wheels, door components, conveyor parts, panelling, sensors, motors, controls and more.

Linear System includes ball-bushings, slide units and torque bearings plus precision ground shafts and shaft supports that can be specified for machine automation.

Together these ranges provide the cost-effective building blocks for production and test machines, materials handling systems, work stations, machinery guards and automated manufacturing systems.

The ICAD Assembler software includes a demonstration mode and is available from Minitec UK, supplied on a disk or downloadable from the Minitec website.
