Lifting Trolley RPEQ Certification

Client: JPC Engineering

Project: Design Verification of Mine Ring Lifting Trolley

Date: 20/11/2015                                                    Time to Completion: 1 week

Deliverables: Design calculations with supporting FEA models demonstrating compliance with relevant Australian Standards, including AS4991, AS1418 and AS4100. Findings presented in report format.

Description: Ferrier Engineering supported JPC Engineering with the RPEQ design certification of a trolley / crane fitted with a winch, used to lift 60 kg ‘mine rings’. The trolley greatly reduces the safety risk involved with removing the rings, which involved manual handling. The design was subject to a number of iterations before arriving at a solution that was compliant with Australian Standards and user-friendly.
