Tokamak Energy Case Study

Tokamak Energy Case Study

World-leading innovative company uses Siemens Digital Industries Software technology in quest to create fusion power

Tokamak Energy chooses Siemens Digital Industries Software solutions for tackling one of mankind’s biggest engineering challenges

The ST40 weighs 50 tons. It is made of easy-to-machine special steel and copper alloys that are corrosion- and heat-resistant and provide low magnetic permeability, high conductivity and structural stability. The device is designed using Solid Edge software, which Tokamak Energy implemented in 2014 with the assistance of Siemens Digital Industries Software solution partner OnePLM. Tokamak Energy is also implementing Teamcenter® software to manage and control the product development process.

“We knew that we had a series of design challenges to tackle so we were looking for an industry-standard tool with excellent parametric ability,” says Bill Huang, senior tokamak engineer. “Solid Edge fulfilled both requirements.”
