Production settings

In Standard Admin there is a production setting that will be used when the command check produciability is used.

Figure 1: Check produciability FormSlab

If changes are made to the Reinforcement the Producability check will be used to check limitations. All not producible bars will be shown in red.

Figure 2: Bar Dimensions in Production settings

The setting Bar Dimension will reduce which possible bar diameters that are available and all other bar diameters will be red if the elment is checked.

Figure 3: Directions and  definitions

Longitudinal bars always lie parallel to the lattice girders in the tensioning direction.

Figure 4: Production settings intersection points

If the setting only orthogonal bars are set to yes only right angled bars are allowed.

The setting Welded mesh controls wether the bars should be specified as Rodstock (checked) or Steelmat (unchecked) in the Unitechnik export.

Minimum intersection points means that the bar needs to be crossed by another bar that many times.

Figure 5: Grid longitudinal

The Grid longitudinal value is the interval of longitudinal bars. The bar is shifted to the nearest grid position. If the grid position is already occupied, the bars are fused together.

Its also possible to add longitudinal bars at mesh ends and mesh cut outs - The bars will be inserted according to the Grid longitudinal value and end overshoot value for the mesh.

Figure 6: Spacing longitudinal

These values if the settings are activated (not in this example) are telling the max and min values for the placement of the longitudinal bars.

Figure 7: Grid transverse

The same setting as the Grid longitudinal value but in the transverse direction.

Figure 8: Spacing transverse

The same setting as the Spacing longitudinal but in the transverse direction.

Figure 9: Setting to move bars automatic

Move from small holes and cims is a function that test if it possible to move the reinforcement a certain distance without needing to cut them (se picture above). If it's not possible to move the reinforcement with the grid and the within the certain distance the bar will keep its distance and it will be cut instead.

Figure 10: Description of move from small holes and cim

The function will only be in play if we the hole or cast in material has a setting to cut the bar. IMPACT will move the bar to the right if possible - If that isn't possible then will IMPACT move it to the left.

Figure 12: Setting to cut bar/mesh for cast in materials

These modifiers can modify the bars to meet minimum production requirements after they have been cut.

Figure 13: Production modifiers

A: This is for the transverse direction means that the bar is allowed to extend longer than it’s allowed because of a CIM or a hole to meet the criteria needed to produce the mesh in the machine.

Figure 14: Transverse direction at a CIM

This will later on be cut manually in production. This means bars that is longer than “Remove bars shorter than” and Min transversal bar.

Figure 15: Remove and min transverse settings

B: the distance
C: The same as A above but in the longitudinal direction
D: The same as B above but in the longitudinal direction
E: If two bars are overlapping each other in the transversal direction they will be combined to one bar
F: Same as E above but for longitudinal bars

Figure 16: Mesh length

Mesh length sets the minimum and maximum length for each mesh. If the mesh in the element exceed the max length will there be inserted a second mesh with a gab to the first mesh.

Override rules when exceeding max length changes the minimum and maximum length values if the max length is exceeded.

1556093559631-290.png

Figure 17: Mesh width

Mesh width sets the minimum and maximum width for each mesh. If the mesh in the element exceed the max width will there be inserted a second mesh with a gab to the first mesh.

Swap rules for length/width when exceeding max width does that the minimum and maximum width takes a reference in the minimum and maximum length and vise versa.

Figure 18: Mesh mass

Sets the max mass for each mesh.
