Syngineering helps design and draw a Separator & Skid

Monday, November 18th, 2013

Syngineering worked with a major client to design and update a separator design, so that it could be easily transported to sites around Australia. The piping, instrumentation and layout of the device was reviewed and updated by Syngineering’s team.

This Separator design gave Syngineering the chance to prove our design capabilities and flexibility when working with a major client. If you think your designs need to be reviewed to make sure it is as optimal as possible, give Syngineering a call, and we can work with you to give you a product that is perfect for the application

Case Study: Syngineering uses FEA to achieve cost savings for Metalmark

Friday, September 20th, 2013


Mark Davies from of Metalmark thanks Syngineering 

Mark Davies, Director at Metalmark, recently approached the team at Syngineering for verification and optimisation of one of his designs. He wanted them to help him achieve a high performance lifting hook with significant cost savings, and Syngineering utilised FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to achieve the best result.

As Mark explains, “We developed the design to a pretty high standard, so it was quite well-advanced. We then approached Syngineering who suggested some options.”

Stronger and lighter

“Syngineering improved the design by using FEA to identify a stress concentration. They then came back to us with a number of options, including one that was far better than our original design.

Case Study: Syngineering helps APT Fabrication grow their profits

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

APT FabricationsWhen it comes to having engineering drawings done for complex 4×4 parts and accessories, the team at APT Fabrication in Brisbane trust Syngineering to do the job to an extremely high standard.

“Working with Syngineering enables us to outsource certain manufacturing tasks – which decreases overall production costs and helps to grow our profits,” explains Ben Woodgate, Director.

Stronger and lighter

“We sell a range of Land Rover 4×4 accessories and parts in our online store.I’ll build a product prototype, such as underbody protection, steering and suspension, or front and rear protection, and then I’ll take it to the guys at Syngineering.

They use their engineering expertise to provide me with highly accurate, professional engineering drawings, which I then pass on to the companies that we outsource to do the cutting, section curving or ring-rolling.

This makes the manufacturing process much more affordable – and allows us to pass those savings on to our valued customers.”

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 …..

Steel Storage Racking – AS4084 Certification

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

We all have storage racks but when was the last time you had them checked?

We see racks of all shapes and sizes, we see the brand new racks complete with a certification tag.  These are not the ones that keep us awake at night.  The ones that really worry the team at Syngineering are the ones that were thrown together in the workshop as a temporary and then temporary becomes permanent and still no one has thought to get these certified.

The team of engineers, draftsman and tradesman at Syngineering want to help and can check the certification of your storage racking and make sure they comply to AS4084.  Syngineering will then supply full detail drawings for each storage rack along with a certification tag and RPEQ .


Syngineering Designs Vacuum Pipe Lifter – 40tonne WLL

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Syngineering has worked with a Queensland manufacturer to develop a vacuum pipe lifter used to lift 10tonne pipes from the hull of a ship and move the pipes to a waiting truck.  The pipes range in diameter up to 450mm and up to 14m in length.

The team of engineers, draftsman and tradesman at Syngineering were heavily involved throughout the project from not initial concept stages through manufacturing and ultimately, preparing as built drawings to record the changes made during the final manufacturing of the vacuum lifters.

The Syngineering engineers made extensive use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) throughout the design.  This allowed the engineers to optimise the weight of the vacuum lifter.



Syngineering have designed the vacuum lifter to be entirely self contained with on board vacuum tanks and control systems.  The lifters also included fork tine slots to allow the lifter to be safely moved around the dock yard using a 16tonne forklift.

The Syngineering team also included certified lifting lugs to allow the vacuum lifter to moved around the dock yard.

Syngineering not only provided manufacturing drawings but 3D models, DXF files for laser cutting of components but also rendered images for marketing brochures and RPEQ certification for the project.
