Automatic Drawing Creation

Written by Adrian Dunevein

Continued from page 1

While these benefits are important it should be notedrepparttar every detail inrepparttar 138985 product design process has to uncovered for this drawing automation to work. What designers now do routinely must be written down and built into formulas and design tables. This is not as easy as it sounds. Designers do a lot of things unconsciously that must be recorded.

The process of automating a design can be approached on an assembly by assembly basis, making sure at each step, thatrepparttar 138986 process is working. A small part ofrepparttar 138987 machine is automated, for example, machine guards. From that point onrepparttar 138988 computer designsrepparttar 138989 guards from specifications andrepparttar 138990 engineers make sure thatrepparttar 138991 system is working properly before proceeding to automate more critical areas ofrepparttar 138992 machine.

Ifrepparttar 138993 process is done carefully, great benefits can be realized in savings of cost and time. Ifrepparttar 138994 engineer’s look atrepparttar 138995 work they do throughoutrepparttar 138996 year, even in custom fabrication, there are things that must done repetitively. It might be flange sizing, machine frames, shafts or any number of things.

It’s worth it for an engineering manager to take a long hard look atrepparttar 138997 the kinds of work that is being done day in and day out, to see if drawing automation can save time and money.

What is EEPROM ?

What arerepparttar symptoms ifrepparttar 138984 MONITOR or TV’s EEPROM data is corrupted or damaged?

• No high voltage (no display). • Horizontal or vertical frequencies run. • Cannot save (store) current setting. • Certain control functions like sound, brightness and contrast control does not functioning. • On Screen Display (OSD) does not function orrepparttar 138985 OSD have a corrupted display. • High voltage shut down (EEPROM setrepparttar 138986 horizontal frequency way too low or twicerepparttar 138987 line frequency perhaps leading to failure ofrepparttar 138988 horizontal output transistor (HOT)).

What is an EEPROM programmer or copier?

EEPROM seldom fail, they just lose or have their memory (data) corrupted may be due to high voltage and static discharge from a monitor. Once reprogrammed they are as good as new. As mentioned earlier, new EEPROMs are blank and need information or data to be loaded in order for it to functions. The job of copyingrepparttar 138989 data into an EEPROM is done by a programmer or a copier. Programmers comes in all shapes and sizes. You can copy these devices for repair replacement only. You cannot copy them for resale without a letter of approved fromrepparttar 138990 vendor who produced them. There is quite a number of companies selling EEPROM programmer: - Typical EEPROM part no: - 24C02, 24C04, 24C08 etc 24C325, 24C645AT17C65, AT17C128 etc 93C06, 93C46, 93C56, 93C66 etc 25010, 25020, 25040 etc
