Mechanical Drawing Symbols
Working as a mechanic being responsible for making the appropriate drawings, including technical ones, working with ventilating, heating or air conditioning, you may find it exhausting creating all of schemes by hand using the ruler, for example. In this case we can recommend to download ConceptDraw DIAGRAM which is professional software that can make your life simpler and help you to achieve your goals at work in your business.
Mechanical systems drawing is a type of technical drawing that shows information about heating, ventilating, and air conditioning. It is a powerful tool that helps analyze complex systems. These drawings are often a set of detailed drawings used for construction projects; it is a requirement for all HVAC work. They are based on the floor and reflected ceiling plans of the architect. After the mechanical drawings are complete, they become part of the construction drawings, which is then used to apply for a building permit. They are also used to determine the price of the project.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Mechanical Engineering solution from the Engineering area of ConceptDraw Solution Park provides a set of drawing tools and predesigned mechanical drawing symbols for fast and easy design various mechanical engineering diagrams, drawings and schematics.

- Hydraulic Pumps and Motors
The vector stencils library "Hydraulic Pumps and Motors" contains 74 symbols of hydraulic pump vector stencils, hydraulic motor symbols for engineering drawings of fluid power and hydraulic control systems.
- Pneumatic Pumps and Motors
The vector stencils library "Pneumatic Pumps and Motors" contains 39 symbols of pneumatic pumps, motors and pump-motors for designing the engineering drawings of pneumatic circuits.
- Valve Assembly
The vector stencils library "Valve Assembly" contains 141 symbols of pressure and flow regulators, flow direction indicators, controls, and symbols to design flow paths of control valves. Use these valve assembly shapes to design the engineering drawings of hydraulic and pneumatic valve assemblies in fluid power systems.
The vector stencils library "Welding" contains 38 welding joint symbols to identify fillets, contours, resistance seams, grooves, surfacing, and backing. Use it to indicate welding operations on working drawings.
All these predesigned objects are vector, so you can resize them without loss of quality, change their color to make your mechanical drawing more interesting, bright and attractive.
Example 2. Mechanical Drawing Symbols — Pneumatic Pumps and Motors Library
To design your own Mechanical Drawing in minutes, follow the next steps:
- create new ConceptDraw document,
- drag the required objects from the libraries,
- arrange and connect these objects,
- type the text and apply colors, if needed.
Example 3. Mechanical Engineering Diagram — Hydraulic Circuits
This mechanical engineering diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software using the mechanical drawing symbols from the libraries of Mechanical Engineering Solution and shows the schemes of hydraulic circuits. An experienced user spent 25 minutes creating this sample.
Use the Mechanical Engineering Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software to create your own mechanical engineering diagrams quick, easy and effective.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Mechanical Engineering Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM or later users.

Process mapping helps with sharing business results and reorganizing workflow. In almost every case, after creating a sales process flowchart the steps that are redundant become obvious for a manager. It's easy to find a flowchart examples that will help in developing one for your business.
This sales process flowchart consists of a sequence of steps that represent a simple sale process. Each step is shown graphically by a rectangle representing processing steps or an activity, or a diamond representing a decision. These rectangles are linked by arrows, that indicate the direction of the sales workflow. ConceptDraw Sales Flowcharts solution delivers a the full set of classical flowchart notation symbols, along with sales-related icons and pictograms.

As restaurant industry is growing rapidly nowadays, researches show that almost half of the adults have worked in a restaurant or a cafe. Moreover, many of them dream to start their own someday. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of time to write a business plan and to find a great location, although some know how to create a restaurant floor plan in minutes or how to plan budget effortlessly. Hiring employees can also cause a lot of headache, but this is crucial for further success, because every guest comes to restaurant for a good service and delicious food. It is also worth noting that restaurant concept is also important, because it defines target audience and influences the menu.
This diagram represents the floor plan of an ongoing sports-theme establishment - restaurant, cafe, or other food service. A number of widescreen monitors installed along the perimeter provide visitors the opportunity to follow the course of a match from anywhere in the dining room of restaurant or cafe. The most of sports fans believe that food and alcohol is a big part of any sports show. That is why the dining room takes the most space - almost 60% of the total establishment space. Nearly all sports fans consume beverages while watching sports - beer, soda or water at least. Thus, the restaurant floor plan designers added a large lavatory there. Moreover, project developers considered unnecessary the gender division of such delicate place - perhaps they guess that only men are watching football, or believe that alcohol will eliminate the most of gender differences.

Total quality management is the one known to be consisting of some organization-wide efforts put in order to install and to make some climate in which this organization can continuously improve its ability to deliver the high-quality products and services to its customers permanently.

A flowchart is a powerful tool for examining processes. It helps improving processes a lot, as it becomes much easier to communicate between involved people, to identify potential problems and to optimize workflow. There are flowcharts of different shapes, sizes and types of flowchart vary from quite basic process flowcharts to complex program flowcharts. Nevertheless, all these diagrams use the same set of special symbols like arrows to connect blocks, parallelogram to show data receiving or rectangles for showing process steps.
Basic flowcharts are used to represent a simple process algorithm. A basic flowchart notation consists of rectangles (business processes), arrows (the flow of information, documents, etc.). The same notation is used in items such as the "decision", which allow you to do the branching. To indicate the start of the entire business process and its termination can be used the "Terminator" element. The advantages of Basic Flowchart are simplicity and clarity. With it you can quickly describe the business process steps. Creating of Basic Flowchart does not require any special knowledge, as easily understand by employees with different levels of education and IQ.

Ultra high frequency (UHF) is the ITU designation for radio frequencies in the range between 300 MHz and 3 GHz, also known as the decimetre band as the wavelengths range from one meter to one decimetre. Radio waves with frequencies above the UHF band fall into the SHF (super-high frequency) or microwave frequency range. Lower frequency signals fall into the VHF (very high frequency) or lower bands. UHF radio waves propagate mainly by line of sight; they are blocked by hills and large buildings although the transmission through building walls is strong enough for indoor reception. They are used for television broadcasting, cell phones, satellite communication including GPS, personal radio services including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, walkie-talkies, cordless phones, and numerous other applications.
