The tool allows users to filter by application, certificate and sealing requirements by entering cable schedule, sealing requirements and installation preferences. The tool generates manufacturer-approved outputs (dxf, step, excel) for exact specifications, ordering and installation details.
In addition, you an easily share your work securely with project teams anywhere in the world.
This quick tool saved Odense Maritime Technology A/S (OMT) in Denmark up to 80% in time, said Chief Process Officer Niels Ammundsen at OMT. The web-based tool was used in the company’s navy ship design projects. In a recent project, the tool helped them track and follow the filling rate of each cable penetration.
“We had 1,000 penetrations and strict margins. The customer required 20% capacity for future installations and detailed control of the spare margin along the project,” Ammundsen said. “We used Roxtec Transit Designer to make sure we had enough space.”
The OMT team was able to monitor the development and provide real time updates on a day-to-day basis regarding the cable transit filling rate. This reassured the customer who wanted to avoid the risk of having to cut new or modify openings.
They estimate their time-savings to 80% when compared to sizing and keeping track of the transits manually. The tool has other benefits, too, Ammundsen said. “We also reduce risk, as we identify issues before they become reality in the yard.”
Key to the success of this project is the user-friendly interface, the integration with other design programs and the visuals on how to pack the sealing modules as well as the ability to share work with project members at other locations.
The OMT team uses the tool to make sure they select a sealing solution that complies with all requirements, and to be able to size the transits correctly. “We know from previous projects that Roxtec products will do the job and that they have all the certificates needed regarding fire protection and gas-tightness,” Ammundsen said.
