We live in a time when the combination of engineering and technology advancements are unsurpassed. Yet, engineering reports take weeks to prepare. VMC Group had a vision for generating engineering reports within minutes as opposed to weeks. With a team of 20 programmers working full time for the last 18 months, our vision has become reality! The E-Generator™ is our automated engineering calculator that provides detailed reports on demand, and almost immediately.
E-Generator™ is a cloud-based tool that allows users to enter basic project information. Once entered, the E-Generator™ makes vibration isolation selections, and calculates seismic, wind, and anchorage selections in accordance with IBC®, ASCE7, AISC and ACI® calculations. A PDF report containing order and installation information is then created with a complete engineering calculation package – including a PE stamp if necessary.
E-Generator™ includes a one-click request option for PE-stamping by state and sends you an email when the report has been approved or rejected within 24 hours. Once you have been sent the selections and stamp, you can then order VMC Group products that are recommended within the report.
Our experience, precision, and passion made the creation of E-Generator™ possible! Our position at the top of our Industry demands harnessing our imagination as to where we are going next, and this is what is NEXT.
We are in this with you: The Power of Together™ — Introducing E-Generator™, our automated engineering calculator!
“In 2008, I proclaimed we would have a tool that performed engineering calculations in 24 hours. This has always been my dream for VMC Group. Through the trials and tribulations of the last decade, we have never lost sight of my promise to our customers. Combining engineering and technology at its best, the E-Generator™ is our automated engineering calculator, providing detailed engineering reports in just minutes. I believe that this multimillion-dollar investment will change the Vibration Isolation and Seismic/Wind landscape for decades to come.”John Wilson Chairman & CEO
IBC®, ASCE7, AISC and
E-Generator™ produces IBC®, ASCE7, AISC, ACI® code-compliant calculations (required by law per state) for the attachments above and below the isolator.
The requiredcalculations and checks by codes and standards, require several simple physics simulations that necessitate minimum information from users, but offers maximum accuracy in results.
end isolator selection is based on minimizing total cost (material and labor) for each project. That means if fifteen different isolators could work on an installation, E-Generator™ will pick the least expensive parts for your project.
