LICAD® Software

LICAD® is the worldwide leading software for support design. LISEGA’s unique modular system was the prerequisite for the creation of a highly sophisticated software application. The solutions we offer open up new opportunities for increased efficiency in design, optimized quality and significant savings in project man-hours. LICAD® has set new standards in this field. It makes it possible to create support drawings and lists of materials in minutes instead of hours.

With LICAD® the user can generate support drawings, bill of materials, and 3D models in different CAD programs. Experience has shown that with LICAD® up to 50% of the support design costs can be saved and the time between design and delivery is also greatly reduced.

The relevant data for designing supports is entered using a standard form and only 6 parameters are needed to find the optimum support design solution:

• Pipe diameter
• Temperature of medium
• Operating load
• Displacement
• Installation height
• Support configuration

Optimum spring and constant hangers are selected automatically, whereby the specific customer requirements such as travel and load reserves according to ASME B 31.1, VGB-R 510 L, DIN EN 13480 or other parameters are taken into account.

The support chains created are saved as complete assemblies and can be printed out as drawings or modified at any time. They are true to scale and contain all the relevant details, including parts lists with weights and materials and optionally with location plan or other freely editable information.
