Hilti North America, a global provider of tools, technology, software and services to the commercial construction industry, has streamlined the base plate design workflow for PROFIS Engineering Suite users by integrating the cloud-based software with Bentley’s RAM Structural System. The agreement with Bentley Systems, the infrastructure engineering software company, gives structural engineers and designers the ability to transfer designs quicker and more accurately between the two programs.
PROFIS Engineering Suite, a user-friendly, cloud-based application helps handle the calculations and analysis of the different elements of a steel-to-concrete connection, including base plate and anchors, with easier iteration and thorough documentation. Now, RAM Structural System and PROFIS Engineering work together to streamline the workflow and help simplify the base plate anchor design process.
Users can leverage the integration of RAM Structural System with the design power of PROFIS Engineering to easily import, design and export anchor and base plate designs. PROFIS Engineering can receive all the information needed to the baseplate and connection design in a few clicks, helping reduce the need for manual data transfer. This method will save up to one hour per design by optimizing your workflow.
“Our customers have requested integrations between their structural analysis software and PROFIS Engineering to increase user productivity while ensuring accuracy of their design,” says David Crawford, director of technical marketing and application solutions at Hilti North America. “We are eager to align with an organization like Bentley that shares our values in providing solutions that move the industry forward. Integrated with RAM Structural System to deliver a seamless experience further enables our customers to simplify the entire anchor design process from start to finish, while delivering considerable time savings for each design.”
“At Bentley, we are always looking for ways to increase our users’ engineering productivity and accuracy,” says Josh Taylor, senior director of structural product management at Bentley Systems.
Hilti is a provider of specialized tools, fastening systems and software-based solutions for the professional user. With more than 3,800 highly trained Hilti account managers, engineers and Hilti employees throughout North America, Hilti’s expertise covers the areas of powder actuated fastening, drilling and demolition, diamond coring and cutting, measuring, firestopping, screw fastening, adhesive and mechanical anchoring, strut and hanger systems, solutions for tool crib productivity as well as worker health and safety.
