Do you need drawings and/or DXFs?

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Laser cutters know this story well… “Can you do this job for me? I don’t have drawings or DXFs though…” If you don’t have a drafting team in house, you might either take on the task of producing the DXF yourself or turning the customer away. Both of these options will limit the margins on your profits, and you might only be left with a handful of customers who have DXFs ready…

We are the home of a team of expert drafters and engineers who can quickly interpret your customer’s design, produce a drawing and DXF, and send it back your way – ready to be cut.

Our team of engineers and draftsmen know the limits of your machinery, and are ever-mindful of constraints that some clients may not realise.  Send your clients our way, and we will take their sketches and ideas, turn them into something YOU can use. Then we will send them back to you.

Do you need drawings for machined parts?

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Our team of experienced draftsmen know what is required on drawings to make your life easier. Our head draftsman has ten years experience as a tool maker and machinist, so he knows what machinists want.

All of our drawings conform to AS1100, so you can be assured that our drawings are easily interpreted and consistent.

Flange Device Drawing Sample

Above are examples of machined parts that customer’s needed drawings  for. Syngineering modelled, rendered and provided drawings for this device, making sure to keep tolerances in mind when drawing this part. Our draftsmen know that tolerances = $$$, so we always take care in specifying tolerances for you.

We can RPEQ certify all designs that we submit, and provide all documentation to ensure that your design and parts are safe.

We can provide you with drawings of your existing products…

At Syngineering, part of what we do is ensuring that companies have drawings on hand for their products. Should the day come where you need to supply drawings for a tender or design concept, you’ll need to have them on hand. Syngineering can provide you with everything you need to make your products or catalogue look even more professional.

Our team of draftsmen and engineers can provide you with the drawings you need to really show off your products.

Syngineering Model Presentation - Gal Grate

The Galvanised Grate above is an example of where a client came to us needing a model and drawing of their existing product.  Syngineering swiftly produced the model and provided them with the detailed drawing, As an added bonus, we can render our model for you, to give your drawing the ‘wow’ factor it needs to impress your customer.

Call or email Syngineering today if you need your products drawn, modeled or rendered.

Syngineering Solves Fatigue Cracking In Trommel Wheel

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

Syngineering were asked to investigate why the trommel wheels were cracking.  The team of experienced engineers at Syngineering used Finite Element Analysis to develop a model that accurately modeled where the fatigue cracks were occurring.

Using this model, the engineers could then optimise the design changing the design of the trommel wheel spokes.

The design improvements were then checked using the original FEA model.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

Syngineering makes extensive use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to solve many complex engineering problems.Pipe Vacuum Lifter FEA

Many problems can be solved by our experienced engineers, however, there are times when the most talented engineers need to use FEA to help solve some of the more complex engineering problems.

The team of experienced engineers have used FEA to identify fatigue stress raisers, optimise designs and verify designs.  Some of the applications include lifting beams, vacuum lifters, transport skids, trommel wheels, lifting dogs, storage racks, pressure vessels, press dies, and many more …..

Syngineering develops fertiliser crusher

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Syngineering have worked closely with a local Queensland manufacturer to design and develop a crusher capable of breaking and then crushing a 5 tonne block of fertiliser into dust ready for use.

The team of experienced engineers, draftsman and tradesman worked closely with the customer and their tradesman to develop the a cost effective and robust design.

The Syngineering team not only developed manufacturing  drawings but 3D models, rendered models, exploded views and RPEQ certification for the project.

Oxygen Lance Reverse Engineering

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Syngineering have recently been working on a project for a major Queensland power station.  Furnace lance

The original request was to reverse engineer a set of components and produce manufacturing drawings for the oxygen lance.

Sounds simple, except for the fact that many of the components had been burnt away in the furnace.

The team of experienced engineers, draftsman and tradesman at Syngineering worked closely to produce not only manufacturing drawings but exploded views for manuals, sectional views and rendered models to help.
