What if you want to have containers filled automatically up to a certain weight?

For one of our customers in the petrochemical industry in the Port of Antwerp, we therefore developed the vulhopper installation. This tower serves as a funnel to fill containers (bins) with used, contaminated catalyst from a reactor.

Developing a tool to place a gearbox of more than 400 kg on a milling machine and to turn it 90° with 1 finger? That was the challenging assignment that 3D Cadworks accepted with great enthusiasm for our customer in the agricultural sector.

For a customer that operates in the nuclear sector, we designed a vacuum nozzle for underwater use. The vacuum cleaner is used to absorb stainless steel chips, which are created during the processing under water. In this way the chips do not end up at the bottom of the water bath. 

We started off with developing a model. Then we performed several flow simulations on the design. To eventually finalize the design for prototyping by means of 3D printing.

Hoisting // Transport // Storage Tool Reactor Dumpnozzle-caps

New reactors at ExxonMobil can count on Innovative Hoisting Tool from 3D Cadworks.

Innovative lifting tool, developed and produced by 3D Cadworks for our customer HCI, for the (de)assembly of dumpnozzle caps of Gofiner reactors. This special hoisting tool consists of a dumpnozzle-cap gripper, which is controlled via the VHT-tool (forklift truck).

In addition, 2 storage racks were supplied with a corresponding lifting beam. Via the lifting beam, the dumpnozzle-caps, which have been removed from the reactor, are moved to the storage rack.

3D Cadworks took care of the complete development and delivery of this special lifting tool for the (dis)assembly of dumpnozzle caps with additional transport and storage tools.

The hoisting tool was delivered with accompanying user manual and certification.

At the request of our customer, we have designed and installed a safety hatch. The safety hatch is used to be able to descend safely via the existing ladder to the lower floor. The safety hatch also serves to safely screen off the opening in the floor, both when open and closed. In addition, we have provided a manual and instruction sticker for use on the safety hatch.

The safety hatch consists of a frame, which is placed in the opening of a floor. Four panels are stored in the frame. By opening the upper panel, one can unlock the side hatches and then pull the lower panel upwards and lock it. In this way, the opening in the floor is completely safely enclosed. One can descend the stairs via the access hatch using the safety handrail. After using the safety hatch, the whole can be folded back completely and the opening is safely closed.

This safety hatch is universal and can also be purchased for implementation in your company.

Feel free to contact us for more information about the 3D Hatch.

Project // Grating Gripper

Grating Gripper

The grating gripper is designed by 3D Cadworks (patent pending) and can be purchased to be implemented in your company.

The grating gripper is designed to lift in a set of 4 grippers, with 2 persons, a plastic / metal grating with meshes of 30 mm or 40 mm.

For more information about the operation and technical data of the grating gripper, you can download the technical sheet below.

If you are interested in the grating gripper, please contact us for more information.

Telluria - Elleganto lounge

Telluria is a Belgian company with a new and safe concept for summerhouses, garages and facade cladding. They use only steel, which guarantees a quick build-up. In order to assist their customers with the construction, Telluria asked 3D Cadworks for help, namely to compose a manual. 3D Cadworks also provided a film that goes through all the steps of the building process.
