  • Catia

Petersen Inc. extensive 3-D modeling capabilities can create tailored solutions to your design dilemmas.  Complex assemblies are easily developed using these 3-D tools to verify compliance with customer requirements, verify operating clearances, and confirm that no interference conditions exist.  These same parametric 3D models can be very quickly converted to fabrication drawings prior to releasing them to the shop for manufacture.

Using 3D modeling software, the Petersen Inc. staff provides design engineering, stress analysis, mechanical event simulation, value engineering, project management and construction services to customers in a wide variety of industries.

Specialized engineering functions include ASME Section VIII Division 1 and 2 for vessels and piping, NQA-1 certified design-build for nuclear applications, and mechanical event simulation for container drop test certification using digital methods.  Traditional finite element analysis is also accomplished to display stress levels and optimize structural configurations of your products.

Electrical, controls, and instrumentation integration are also accomplished within this staff organization.  These capabilities range from simple power-on testing of completed assemblies, to complete electrical engineering efforts to develop control systems, component selection, PLC programming, wire harness build, UL certified panels and performance testing.
