Container Monorail

When a shipping container is used to transport heavy items, it might be advantageous to install a monorail which can extend outside the container to lift and move items from inside of the container. Dynamic Engineering was asked to design such a retractable container monorail according to the relevant Australian Standards (AS1418). In addition, the support beams, which connected to the container needed to be strong enough and were included in the design. DEC took the client’s initial concept and turned it into a working model with fabrication drawings. The following picture show the final design.
