Aeronaut News Mid-2012

Specialised Textiles 2012.

Atkins Fabrication, Scottsdale

The Specialised Textiles Association (the one formerly known as ACASPA) is having its annual bash down in Melbourne this year and of course, Aeronaut will be there on stands 11 and 12.

There will be the usual range of attractions on offer at the expo, both inside and outside the trade show including a visit to the MCG to watch the footy. Locals will attempt to explain their idiosyncratic version of the oval ball game over a few pies and beer, while presumably Collingwood wins again. (Go the Rabbitos!)

We'd love to see you at the Aeronaut stand at the Expo. An Elektron Quattro 4 tool cutter will be on display. You can see the latest and greatest versions of Aeronaut software including Tangent 6, ParaSol and our range of CAD plug-ins for rapid pattern development and of course we'll be happy to discuss implementing automated cutting in your business. Just don't ask us about the footy. Read More »

ParaSol: Made for Shade.

Inline Image

Aeronaut's new ParaSol software was a big hit a R+T 2012. Two applications from the suite were rolled out: ParaSol R&R for rollers and romans and ParaSol Awnings for outdoor products.

Initially, this software is being introduced on new cutters and as legacy designs are added and debugged, ParaSol will be avaiable as an upgrade for users of Aeroblinds.

Development work has started on the next modules in the ParaSol suite, for the design of umbrellas and 3D awnings which will be followed by marquees, shade sails and café curtains.

ParaSol's improved user interface is of little interest to some customers and that's the way it has been designed to be. Customers who use Aeronaut's Automatic Date Entry (ADE) drive ParaSol directly from their order entry software, so the program sits in the background and its beauty goes unnoticed.

Tension Structures

Atkins Fabrication, Scottsdale

There are a couple of workshops coming up at the Specialised Textiles Expo on designing tension membrane structures and shade sails.

Alan Stewart from Structureflex is giving a talk and demonstrating MPanel and in the next session, Trevor Scott from Light Weight Structures is giving a talk on Formfinder. These promise to be popular and well attended talks.

Since 1995, Aeronaut has been manufacturing cutters over 6.5 metres wide (21.3') and are used extensively in the fabrication of tension membrane and shade structures. A great many SPA award-winners have been cut on an Aeronaut machine.

Both the low-cost Elektron Mono WS and highly versatile Elektron Quattro are used extensively in tension membrane and shade sail work where their wide-spans, stiffness and cutting power makes these cutters the perfect tool. Read More »
