Bolt Rack - Force Mechanics

Dienst:

Engineering and Reverse engineering

Force Mechanics is a company specialized in mechanical maintenance services for complex industrial installations in Western Europe and internationally. In doing so, they are continuously working on optimizing their working methods.

3D Cadworks designed and constructed a series of specific bolt racks. These are intended to store specific bolt sizes of a larger caliber in a clean and safe way. The bolt racks are designed for lifting and can be stored in standard containers.

Vacuum Nozzle


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.

3D Hatch


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.
