“QuickDesigner” Guarding Design Program Reduces Engineering Time -- Offers Flexible Fabrication Options


mk North America Inc., has introduced mk “QuickDesigner”, a proprietary stand alone software program that allows users, engineers and distributors, to quickly design and layout an mk Guarding system to meet their specific guarding requirements. With the new “QuickDesigner” program, engineering time can be reduced by over 80%, order processing and lead times significantly reduced as well, resulting in dramatic cost savings before assembly and installation.
User-friendly and freestanding, the new mk “QuickDesigner” software does not require use with licensed design programs, yet it is compatible with popular CAD systems, allowing users to create STEP, IGES and JPEG files as needed. “QuickDesigner” is available free upon request to mk North America, Inc. 

“QuickDesigner” offers unique design flexibility: users can choose to design and build one panel at a time, clicking on each panel for modifications or to attach additional panels to complete the guarding system; a second option allows users to create the footprint of the guarding area, and populate the footprint with the guarding required; with the third option, users import the equipment drawing to be guarded, specify the offsets between the guarding and the machine, and  the program populates the area with the requisite guarding configuration.
The mk Guarding System is then shown in 2D and 3D models for added efficiency and visualization. In addition, the program generates a complete bill
of materials, including cut lists for extrusions and panels, parts lists, machining services required, and all the necessary information for fabrication and assembly.  Customers can select purchasing the mk Guarding System as bulk materials for self-fabrication and assembly in their plant, in kit form, ready for assembly or pre-assembled by mk North America and furnished to the customer location for final installation.

“Using ‘QuickDesigner’ allows a customer to do his own design assisted by our pre-engineered modules. He can quickly and efficiently achieve design verification and implement modifications on the fly. Customers will now have the ability to compress design cycles and attain cost reductions through the range of design and fabrication options offered in the software package,” comments Mike Higgins, Sales & Business Development Manager, mk North America, Inc.

“QuickDesigner” is ideal for use by design and engineering personnel among OEM machine builders, robot integrators, system builders and other manufacturing users, including distributor personnel serving these markets.
