SAFETY & DESIGN
Design and engineering have laid the foundation
… to our business successes. We always use 3D CAD systems in our design work. Not only to make it easy for us, but also to be able to show our customers design drawings and data-animated images of what the result will be like in advance.
Whenever possible, we also do simulations, which saves the time and cost of developing a prototype, and means that we can offer shorter lead times at a better price.
Production takes place on site in our own factory in Henån on Orust so that we can get an overview of the entire process. In this way, we can offer efficient service and avoid mistakes and delays.
Design and engineering are fundamental to our business success. Naturally we use a 3D CAD system in our design work – not
just for our own ease, but so that we can share accurately drawn scale plans and clear computer-generated images with our clients during the offer process, and they can see exactly what they will be getting. Wherever possible we also run simulations,for load testing for example, which saves the time and expense of making prototypes and means we can offer shorter lead times at a
better price. Manufacturing happens on site at our own
factory in Sweden, so we have control of the whole process. That way we can offer an efficient service, avoiding mistakes and delays.
Safety is no accident
We take safety seriously at every stage of the process. We don’t want people to get hurt, and we also know that unsafe practices and equipment cost money in terms of time lost, sickness pay and reduced efficiency, as well as regulatory fines.
Even at the design stage we are thinking safety. Units are designed so they are solid and
stable. Many of our products can be equipped with safety locks to ensure that only one unit at a time can be pulled out, thus avoiding the risk of tipping or overload.
High quality steel and consistent welding
Using high quality steel with known and consistent properties also contributes to safety. There are no unexpected weak spots where the metal is liable to fatigue, and we can predict accurately the overall loadings our products can handle. High quality and consistent welding also maintains reliability. Our specified load ratings allow a wide safety margin, so you can be sure that the loads we specify are real world figures, valid for repeated daily use, not just for a one-off test. However, we also carry out overload tests using up to twice the specified load. Even when our units are so overloaded that they get damaged (mistakes can happen, after all), we make sure that they remain safe. Beware of cheap imitations!
Extensive use of pull-out shelves with quality ball bearings reduce the likelyhood of injuries and accidents.
