CARF Equipment Layout

Many trades – one tool: CARF Equipment Layout

Using CARF Equipment Layout you can – with just a few clicks – plan a complete factory including the outdoor facilities, office and staff room areas, logistics, assembly, body shop, plant structure planning, and paint shop.

Did you not receive building files from the architects for your project? Then you can create the building yourself, including windows and doors, quickly and easily in 3D using the building functionality. You can equip the rooms with furniture, parametrically in 3D. You can plan even details, e.g. the design of the handles and the interior of the cabinets.

For logistics planners parametric cells for racks, trailers and containers are available. You can use a wide range of predefined cells or simply compose the objects yourself.

In addition to planning for the logistics area, you can also use the CARF Equipment Layout to equip the assembly areas and place work platforms and moving walkways.

With the Crane Systems functions you can quickly and easily define individual floor, wall and ceiling cranes. These can be placed in your layout with all the required attributes such as cantilever, maximum load, working space and interference volume. You can even plan the gantry cranes in detail. With the possibility of adding footbridges and power supply, you can also place related components to take into account their space requirements.

The planning of crane rails incl. trolleys, manipulators and handling equipment is a popular feature in the assembly planning. The planning of crane rails in CARF Crane Systems is complemented by the additional placement of brackets or suspensions, working space and interference volume.

With the function Machine Design, the Unit Design can perform the planning of the machines individually, easily and quickly, incl. the interlinking between the units. Plan your barrier systems such as fences and partition wall systems, but also crash barriers and bollards. Even robots in all different designs can be placed quickly.
Planners in the automotive sector may use the CarConfigurator which offers a selection of all vehicle types of all common manufacturers.

Also pay attention to the outdoor area when planning. With the outdoor area functions such as parking spaces, parking areas, sidewalks, traffic signs, road courses and track systems incl. train control symbols, this area is also extensively covered.
