Planning and consulting
We provide services to operators and manufacturers of machinery and systems. We support our customers in all phases: procurement, realization or operation of equipment. Our know-how is the result of longstanding experience, especially the complex knowledge of design and function of a wide variety of machinery components and the knowledge derived therefrom about their work in the system network.
Our services include:
- Feasibility studies and economic considerations
- Analysis and retrofit concepts
- Planning (preliminary, draft, approval and implementation planning)
- Supporting the whole tender process
- Consulting and expert activity
Project planning and design
We carry out project planning, calculations and design works - from the first draft up to the complete workshop documentation. We offer a consistent and comprehensive engineering from a single source.
The focus of our engineering activities is on innovative developments, in which the professional potential of our employees is fully utilized. Due to our flexible staffing concept and a high degree of specialized knowledge, even large and complex tasks with high requirements can be handled in a short time.
Typical tasks are new developments and constructions as well as reconstructions, modernizations and expansions of existing constructions.
Calculation and simulation
The basis for the development, design and construction of machines, systems and steel structures is their verifiable design and dimensioning for the operational loads and other external influences to be considered. Static and mechanical calculations are one of our core competences. Among them we carry out the calculations on the basis of our inhouse-developed powerful software solutions.
Our services are:
- Rod statics
- FEM calculations
- Dynamic analyzes
- Analyzes and verification of the remaining service life
Experimental measuring technology
Longstanding experience in the use of strain gauges to determine deformation and stress states traditionally form the basis of experimental measurement technology as well as for the development and production of the corresponding task-specific measuring and evaluation equipment.
In addition, all other conventional or innovative measurement methods are used in line with the analyzes to be performed. Depending on the problem, we design and manufacture the task-specific sensors for measuring the physical quantities themselves.
Together with our customers, we coordinate the measuring procedures and install the complete measuring chain from data collection to evaluation.
Typical services are:
- Onsite testing performed directly at the customer site
- Verification of damages
- Geometric measurements
To carry out component tests, we have three test laboratories, which are equipped with different testing machines and systems for realizing different scenarios. These test laboratories are the prerequisite for the performance of strength tests, especially the determination of fatigue strength.
For the realization of customized and highly specialized test tasks, our test facilities will be individually built by in-house development. Thus, we are able to carry out a wide variety of test scenarios in our test laboratories. The tests are mainly realized by means of servo technology and pulsation technology.
In addition to permanently installed test facilities, we also have portable test facilities, so that parts of the test tasks (mainly static tests) can be carried out directly at our customers' premises.
Our services are:
- Static tests
- Endurance tests
- Suitability and approval tests
- Tests related to special functions
Our services as certified experts
Our accreditation and services as certified experts reflect the experience gained in the development, operation and approval of machines and systems.
We have experienced experts in our main working areas. Depending on the legal regulations, the experts are examined, approved and recognized by the relevant authorities or are also appointed by the courts.
Our experienced experts prepare expert reports and carry out examinations in the following areas:
- Mining equipment
Software to calculate machines and systems
On the basis of our comprehensive product and problem knowledge as well as our varied experience in the calculation and dimensioning of machines, we have developed software solutions that are tailored to the special needs of the specialist field of handling technology.
- Dimensioning and static calculation of cranes
- Dimensioning of belt conveyors
- Dimensioning and calculation of drive components
