Offset Round to Rectangle Development Program

FastSHAPES® is the generic name for a suite of Plate & Sheet development software programs specifically designed for heavy fabrication where the main jointing technology is welding.

The RORT software module is for the development of anywhere a Rectangular to Off-set Round transformers (Common Sq to Round) Parallel inlet and outlet. Multi-Strake, multi-seam and bend and welding allowance is needed, especially with thick plate.

downarrowTYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Anywhere a Rectangle - Offset Round Transformer is needed, especially with thick plate.
Ducts, flues, shrouds etc..


downarrowTECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
Uses triangulation development method
Finite thickness of plate is provided for -
uses a radiused corner in the rectangle.
Up to 8 longitudinal seams permitted.
Parallel inlet and outlet planes
Axial offsets permitted
