Our highly technical Mechanical Engineering team are proficient in the use of cutting-edge drawing software. In recent years, Kinder Australia has made investments in Conveyor Engineering/Design Software such as Helix, Solidworks and AutoCAD.
Utilising AutoCAD in the production of 2-dimensional layout drawings or Solidworks in the creation of 3-dimensional modelling, mean our customer base can be confident Kinder Australia’s team of Mechanical Engineering specialists will provide comprehensive recommendations on correct installation of conveyor components and bulk materials handling accessories and lining materials.
Productivity and safety go hand in hand, with this in mind Simulation Finite Element Analysis, an upgrade to Solidworks basic license provides our Engineering Team with the tools to more accurately predict and design innovative products/solutions simulating real world scenarios. From there, the team can analyse results and optimise designs for future productivity improvements and gain.
With the Helix expertise and proficiency our Engineers are firmly equipped to provide comprehensive mechanical conveyor advice on:
- Equipment selection for idlers, pulleys and shafts
- Calculating conveyor pulley and idler shaft dimensions
- Idler bearing life and shaft deflection calculations
- Size requirements pulleys and drives to minimise capital and spares holding cost
Overall conveyor design and componentry can be checked utilising the Helix conveyor design program, ensuring Kinder Australia’s customers have the correct product application and design duty.
