Safety Related Equipment Design

At Dynamic Engineering Consultants we can design, certify and supply specialised safety equipment that is tailored to the client’s specific requirements. This will ensure that no compromises would have to be made in the implementation of safety related/critical processes and procedures. Below are some examples of recent safety equipment design that we did: a drill cradle, scissor lift, tyre cage and cement kibble.

A drill cradle is used to hold the drill head in place (avoid damage and injuries associated with drill head coming loose).

This scissor lift was designed to improve access to dump truck rim parts.

A tyre cage was modelled and analysed with non-linear Finite Element Analysis to see if it would be able to withstand a tyre burst event.

A cement kibble was modelled and analysed to see if it would safely lift 1T. In addition the kibble also comes equipped with forklift guides.

During up-hole drilling, a centraliser, using hydraulic force, holds the rod while the next drill rod is being inserted. It is very important that the rod doesn’t slip as it can cause serious damage to the drilling equipment or injury to the operator. To protect the equipment and operator, a sliding plate drill rod fall protection system could be installed as a fail-safe. The sliding plate assembly has to withstand the weight of the rod string including a safety factor. One such sliding plate was designed by Dynamic Engineering in conjunction with the client. The analysis was done to check that it complies with the Australian standard and is strong enough for the weight of the rod string.
