Drill Mast Stand

Many of our clients are happy to fabricate their own equipment, but need help converting their concept ideas into a design that complies with the Australian Standards. Dynamic Engineering works with the client, fine tuning the design until complies, and can then assist with generating accurate fabrication drawings.

In one such an example, our client wanted to analyse a drill mast stand with a WLL = 25T. Below is the concept along with the final design.

The concept had to undergo several modifications to comply with the stress, deflection, stability, buckling requirements. In addition the pins were checked to see if they were strong enough and finally the stand was checked while being lifted with the forklift.
