The Structural Steel industry is changing rapidly. Traditionally, fabrication shops relied on detailers to make shop drawings that were used to perform manual operations of cutting, drilling and bending steel. Shops used manual labor using tape measures and soap stone to layout and fabricate steel. While some shops employ these methods, the majority today rely on CNC (Computer-Numerically-Controlled) machines to make components and the data that Tensor provides to precisely program them.
Our reputation and input helps our industry initiatives push software development through 3-D modeling and BIM (Building Information Modeling). The Federal government advocates the modernization of the bridge industry through FHWA grants and pilot projects to define and develop BrIM (Bridge Information Modeling) for construction and for life-cycle management of bridges. Tensor has been involved in the national committees working on software definitions. The 3D modeling software allows for secondary technologies like Virtual Reality and robotic welders.
