Documentation is a part of the product required by the law and the directives. Country-specific and regional regulations define its obligatory parts, even up to the structure.
Suddenly the central heating is switched off and a Finnish block of flats starts getting colder. A random service denial attack from China brought the central computer of the building automation to its knees.
The block of flats made a lucky escape. But what if the target was a hospital, an industrial site or a central part of the infrastructure? Or a smart building, or a branch of an enterprise?
Valmet’s and Etteplan’s cooperation in mechanical engineering and documentation dates back more than 30 years. The strategic partnership is based on openness.
Wi-Fi, also known as wireless local area network, is as obvious for us as electricity network and lighting. The tablet, mobile phone and laptop are supposed to provide you with a high-quality web connection when at home, at the office, at industrial sites, at the airport and at a sports stadium of 50 000 spectators. Designing a network functioning flawlessly under all circumstances is a challenge for even the most advanced professionals.
Simulation speeds up design and helps improve the end product quality. EMC, or Electromagnetic Compatibility, is wise to be taken into account in design from the very beginning.
Wireless devices are becoming more common due to industrial internet. This means an increasing number of devices with an antenna. The antennas are usually covered and hidden inside the devices. Industrial internet devices are also heading for a direction where they become smaller, cheaper and less power consuming all the time. Often they are also battery-operated. All this causes headache for a person responsible for wireless (radio) link performance and operation.

Any flaws in technical documentation would be costly and harm our customers. We understand the need to develop our documentation tools and processes on a constant basis.
The development of an IVD (in vitro diagnostic) device provides many challenges. An IVD device does not only have to comply with regulatory requirements and pass all certifications but also often contains complicated measurement technology and precision mechanics.
When the company set out to find a product development partner, its objective was clear: it wanted to improve the usability of a tonometer (internal eye pressure measurement device) which was on the market. It was also important to ensure the accuracy of the results of measurement made at home.
It all began with a problem – and a brilliant idea. Professor Hans Wiksell, founder of the medical technology company NeoDynamics, recognized that breast cancer biopsies involve certain problems and risks. He discovered a method that provides better, safer and less invasive sampling.
