BA Crest Gold Award & Exscitec Platinum Award
To design a machine validation rig for use with our self propelled products. It was designed to further enhance our current Pre-Delivery Inspection process whilst reducing the man hours involved and the environmental impact of this testing.
The rig was designed to simulate the operational conditions that our self propelled machines are exposed to during use to ensure no issues are present in the machines' hydraulic and transmission system.
The team achieved this by incorporating both a rolling road and vibration pads into their rig.
The rig was designed to accommodate all self-propelled wheel bases from HR12 to HR21.
