Transport and support frames can make moving and maintaining equipment much easier. We make use of the applicable Australian Standards as well as the National Transport Commission’s load restraint guide when designing a transport frame. In summary the design has to be sufficient to withstand imposed longitudinal and lateral loads associated with transport applications. In some cases the frames are only used to transport the equipment around on site. In these cases we also perform forklift stability calculations in addition to the structural design. We also adhere to the Australian Standard’s requirements in terms of nameplate requirements.
Transport frame: stress analysis
This container frame is used to suspend chemical containers like cyanide. It comes equipped with ISO container mounts and is of a very heavy construction.
