KETIV’s Vault Automation Solution Ensures Accuracy for Bauer’s Sheet Metal Parts
KETIV created automation that works with Vault Professional using coolOrange’s Powerjobs Extension, this automation passes files of specific sheet metal parts to a location specified by Bauer. The file is then picked up by their external nesting software to be used during the cutting process for the part. This functionality is triggered on specific lifecycle transitions in Vault, which guarantees that the correct version of these parts are being manufactured.

Innovation in Action: Superior Tank’s Tank Inlet and Overflow Generator
Superior Tank chose KETIV for a follow-on project to add a tank inlet and overflow generator for tank-piping assemblies using Autodesk Inventor UI. The team can now easily find and select common tank accessories and elements from simple dropdowns to inject into the builder. This allows more diversity in their workflows as they are no longer dependent on doing this only on initial builds in the tank automation tool.

Automation Excellence: How KETIV’s Add-In Transforms Tank Design
To speed up the process of building a net-new tank, KETIV’s Automation Practice developed a custom configurator Add-In for Superior Tank that makes full use of the designer-driven power of Autodesk Inventor. The solution offers considerable technical benefits: – The tank-builder automation allows the team to speed up the process of tank design and build their kits and related components with greater efficiency. – The team has the power to create their own components, allowing them to dynamically expand their own library of “smart parts.” – The builder outputs DXF files that provide accurate flat developments and files for accessory openings – Designers get more re-use of their rafter designs, rafters, and staves that can be quickly assembled.

Fluid Insights: Ansys Fluent’s Role in Optimizing Potato Processing
As part of their Better Together approach of using simulation to validate their Autodesk designs, they employed Ansys Fluent. This powerful fluid simulation software provides Idaho Steel with insight into how the flow of different fluids through their equipment impacts heat distribution of cooking, blanching, or cooling potatoes. It solves a diverse set of problems like optimizing the pneumatic transport of potato flakes, down to ensuring that the pipe fittings throughout their plant are secure, alleviating safety and stability concerns.

From Hours to Minutes: Idaho Steel’s Error Resolution Transformation
These digital prototypes undergo rigorous testing in simulated environments using Ansys software, which enables early detection and resolution of design flaws. As a result, Idaho Steel has saved invaluable time and resources while elevating product quality. The project enabled Idaho Steel to resolve errors that, instead of spending multiple hours checking their work, would be resolved in less than an hour—these errors are brought to their attention automatically.

Innovating for Impact: Medtronic’s In Silico Journey
By applying in Silico methods to address key questions in the clinical trial design of their micro leadless pacemaker, Medtronic reduced the trial size by 256 patients. This reduction saved an estimated $10 million in costs and shortened the time to enroll critical patients by two years. The accelerated timeline allowed Medtronic to introduce their innovative therapy to the market two years earlier, benefiting 10,000 high-risk patients who would have been ineligible for traditional treatment.
