Design and manufacture of lifting equipment

Our experienced technical engineers are experts in calculations and they will bring solutions to your most challenging projects. We perform structural analysis (analytical and numerical FEM) and rigging calculations and we are experienced in developing complex mechanical systems and steel structures. Using Solid Works, we are able to generate 3D models, which we use to produce 2D drawings for manufacturing. As crucial part of designing equipment or machines we always do risk assessments and instruction manuals according to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EF. Furthermore we only work with welding subcontractors certified according to ISO 3834-2
(quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials - comprehensive quality requirements).
