A series of service cabinets and other equipment were targeted for review when hoisted overhead. The various units were measured in the field and modeled in PTC’s Wildfire 5.0. Lifting and loading conditions were simulated using PTC’s Mechanica FEA software.
Reports were prepared for each unit identifying acceptable performance, failing performance and possible solutions for increasing performance to meet requirements. Failing units were reviewed for potential design solutions for improving each to meet safety requirements.
