ENGINEERING: Keys To Success
Recent Western Cape Business News
INNOVATIVE engineering and design combined with a true understanding and experience of the transport industry ensures that a GRW Engineering product is miles ahead of its rivals in terms of payload, structural integrity and safety standards, the company claims.
The design process is realised through CAD methods and inputted data is verified by correlating actual prototype dynamic data with theoretical data. Finite element analysis techniques then ensure a sound optimised design solution.
All new models are designed strictly in accordance with the latest national and international regulatory standards as expected by its clients.
Staying the leading manufacturer requires extensive knowledge of product service conditions and applying new technology to optimise all products. To maintain and expand its technological competence, GRW invests a considerable amount on research and development it says.
New products undergo extensive prototype testing using in-house facilities as well as other accredited test centres which include facilities of the University of Stellensbosch, SABS Commercial Mechanical Testing Laboratory and Spoornet’s Railway Technology Development Centre.
Another example of GRW’s research projects are a combination of long term (longer than three months) and short term measurements (one day) of the dynamic load conditions to which various tanker models are subjected to during normal operational conditions. These measurements are analysed and used to optimise the design criteria for maximum and fatigue load conditions of the tanker models.
