Practical Engineering were engaged by Fantech Pty. Ltd. to design a 6m articulating steel extension arm that would support Ø500 ducting to extract diesel fumes from V/Line trains while they are idling in a train depot.
Fantech contacted Practical Engineering to develop this design as the extension arm that Fantech typically imports from overseas had a maximum extension of 4.5m. The design developed and certified by Practical Engineering has an extension length of 6m, as required by the application.
With Fantech now owning a complete design, they can cost effectively develop alternate designs to achieve different extension lengths, actuation profiles and load capacities to suit future projects.
Practical Engineering is proud to work with Fantech in developing and implementing new and innovative products for Australian industry.
