Technology Services

PCC extensively utilizes its CAD and finite element analysis (FEA) capabilities in the design of tooling, fixtures and related structures.  These tools assure the efficient development of designs to fully meet the user's needs.

The design would be developed utilizing best-in-class design tools such as Siemens NX (formerly Unigraphics) CAD system.  PCC has the ability to share a wide variety of platform specific and generic CAD file formats. During the design process, PCC could digitally simulate the design as necessary to determine its structural integrity.

PCC has developed expertise in designing tooling and fixturing to support all aspects of fabrication including lifting fixtures, leak test systems, hydrostatic test equipment, remote viewing/inspection equipment manipulators.

Much of this design experience was developed to address specialized needs and requirements that could not be resolved utilizing traditional fixturing. This creativity and expertise can be applied to efficiently meet your special operational needs.
