Background: The purpose of this system is to test and verify the functionality of various hoist models built at a manufacturing/repair facility. Product Hoist Testing System. The system is capable of operating hydraulic powered hoists, DC powered hoists and 400Hz AC powered hoists.ScopeEnser designed, built, assembled, tested and installed a hoist testing system. The system has the capability of operating hydraulic powered hoists, DC powered hoists and 400Hz AC powered hoists. When a unit is connected to the system, it is automatically detected and the system will load the unit’sSEE DETAILS
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.
Background:Customer had limited production circuit boards which were being assembled and soldered free hand or with crude clamping and holding mock ups. Results were poor quality and low production output.ProductFlip Jigs and Holding Fixtures to be used for Circuit Board Solder & AssemblyScopeEnser was tasked with developing tooling and fixtures that required multiple wires and solder connections be made on a single board without interfering with each other during the process. Fixture had to limit the number of tooling moves per process to reduce operator fatigue. Operation might be performedSEE DETAILS
Background:Enser was tasked with design and build a fixture to lift and turn down a fully assembled stator housing.Product250 TON Turn Down FixtureScopeThis fixture was designed to lift and turn down a fully assembled stator housing. The total weight of the fixture and stator was 250 metric tons. The fixture was designed using lightweight high strength material in some areas to cut weight as the crane capacity in the area was at its limit. The fixture would be assembled piece by piece onto the stator. The stator would be lifted and thenSEE DETAILS
Background:Design and Build of a table top Nitrogen bottle purging and capping system.ProductNitrogen Purging and Capping SystemScopeEnser worked with the company to design and build this custom transportable bottle machine. The system contains a linear slide for bottle transport from station to station and a linear cylinder to engage N2 and/or capper. Controls with a touch screen for adjustments and system monitoring.ResultCycle time improved by 35%.Non conformance reduced 50%.Labor reduced 23%.
Background:Enser was tasked with the engineering, design and build including FE Analysis reports validating performance for safe functional operation, overhead lifting, and transportation.Product:35 Ton Rotor Transport SkidScope:This transport skid was designed and then validated for performance of safe functional operation, overhead lifting, and transportation. Lifting performance included lifting an entire transport skid and rotor system. Lift testing of the unit was completed in its operating conditions at 125% capacity.Validation Criteria for Acceptable Overhead Lifting Performance while loaded: Compliance to ASME BTH-1, 2008 Validation Criteria for Acceptable Transportation Performance: Compliance to conditions defined by Federal Motor CarrierSEE DETAILS
Background:Enser was tasked with development of dynamic systems and controls for an advanced energy system that was incorporated into a non-invasive therapy for chronic psychiatric and neurological disorders.ProductNeurostar TMS Therapy System for non-invasive therapeutic treatment of depression. ScopeThe technology used in the concept was converted to a detailed engineering design package; a working model was built for testing and design verification. The design consisted of a proprietary system to generate high intensity magnetic pulses capable of focused brain stimulation, and a head frame necessary to administer the therapy. The working modelSEE DETAILS
The beam complies with the ANSI-B 30-20 standard for Below-The-Hook lifting devices and was designed with one center lifting lug for use with 100 ton cranes. The beam length was 360 inches with 13 lifting holes on each side with a total maximum lifting weight of 100 tons.
Background:Tom Scannell, an 18-year ironworker member of Local 401 (Philadelphia) and local inventor, had an idea to design a product that could prevent the removal of cable clamps on safety cables. He knew the importance of maintaining the integrity of the perimeter cables on a job site, and the responsibility, man-hours and liability involved with maintaining the perimeter and interior safety cables.ProductCable VaultScopeEnser worked with Tom to re-design the concept and build the prototypes. He realized there was a great potential for the product to prevent incidents involving the alteration of safety cables. The cableSEE DETAILS
Background:This unit was developed to automate a part loading and punching process currently performed manually.ProductAutomated Hole Punch MachineScopeEnser worked with the company to design, build and install this automated hole punch machine. The system punched 3 holes at once and had a 30 second cycle time which was a 75% time savings. The parts could be easily stacked on a lead in conveyor and where automatically guided into the system where the sensors identified the size of the part and then located it properly for punching. The installation of thisSEE DETAILS
Background: DuPont’s mission was to design and build a new “FLEXO” film machine that does not use the conventional chemical solvent or aqueous washout for removing the relief layer. Enser was assigned the tasks of engineering, designing and detailing under the direction of DuPont’s lead mechanical designer. Enser formed an internal team that included six machine designers, an industrial designer and two detailers. Product “FLEXO” Film Machine Scope Design decisions were made based on common engineering and design experiences; only key elements were analyzed using FEA (in Pro/MECHANICA). However, aSEE DETAILS
