Tekla Scrutures 3D BIM Software
Tekla and Maruhide Koki provide an application called PIPELABO to create a direct link between Tekla Structures 3D BIM software and Maruhide Koki's Pipe Coaster HID Series machinery.
With an application called PIPELABO, the 3D building information modeling (BIM) data of round and square steel pipes designed in Tekla Structures software can be automatically transformed into pipe cutting data for Maruhide's Pipe Coaster machines. This enables labor and cost savings and prevents incorrect data at data entry. The solution will be available as of July 1, 2011.
Japanese steel pipe cutting machine supplier Maruhide Koki Co. Ltd signed a cooperation agreement with Tekla in June 2010, and since then the companies have worked together on software application development using the Tekla Open API™ programming interface.
