We provide an advisory service and
are capable of managing any technical project or
Together with our partners,
we can also design and manufacture devices
for your business and deliver them turn key.
We design, calculate and dimension all kinds of structure,
including for example bespoke cranes, cross beams, roofs, bridges
or whatever is required.
We calculate dimensions with respect to fatigue resistance,
rigidity and strength at normal, high or low temperatures.
Forces may act selectively or continuously.
With extensive experience in continuum analysis,
we are able to compute the global strength and rigidity
of your constructions using the finite elemt analysis (FEA)
and to issue evidences of stability for discrete critical members
(e.g. calculation of bolted joints applying VDI 2230).
Generally, we are using ANSYS for this aims,
but we are willing to aquire other licenses
in context of major assignments.
We are executing proofs of strength, fatigue and stability.
Beside the development of devices for in-situ operation
we work on solutions for the generation and investigation
of artificial benthic environments
inside a laboratory
e.g. small sized electrical drives (rated for 6000 m depth)
and under water TV cameras
The development, design and manufacturing
of pressure vessels up to 630 bar (9100 psi),
dealing with the marine environment
is one of our specialities.
We have some knowledge
in the construction of pressure laboratories
and deep sea aquaria,
which generate an artificial deep-sea environment
inside a pressure vessel
and enable monitoring, operation and control by interfaces.
A description in detail
can be seen here.
We manage any project in the arena of technical engineering.
We also create solutions using modern methods of computer admitted engineering
(Pro Engineer Wildfire and AutoCAD,
the employment of other solutions is possible in context of major assignments),
and generate technical drawing, acquire partners for manufacturing, supply, etc.
We draw IMO Fire Control and Safety Plans
regarding all relevant regulations (and your wishes)
using the symbols prescribed in IMO A.760(18)
and IMO A.654(16) or rather A.952(23).
You send us your documentation as hardcopy or computer file,
we will make a preliminary draft and settle the necessary
changes with you. For this aim,
we are also disposed to audition you in person.
Finally you get the plans ready for usage
in wished count.
We create reference manuals, user guides, data sheets, operating instructions,
technical brochures, risk assessments, declarations of conformity, etc. for
We are also digitising your archives (hard-copy, microfilm, *,tif,...) using
ProEngineer (3D) and AutoCAD (2D).
We prepare and compile the essential documents for the certification of your
device (German Lloyd, TÜV) and unburden you of the formalities.
We determine geometry and other conditions of your ship or barge
and transfer them to CAD, if necessary from paper drawings or using
tape and inch rule.
Afterwards we design the deck layout, execute all necessary calculations
(sea-fastening, center of gravity, etc..), design all necessary appliances
and illustrate all substeps in 3D (or as wished 2D). You get the complete certified
documentation as *.pdf or *.dwg.
We would be glad to advise you in your aero- or hydrodynamic challenge.
This may be a large advertising boarding on your vessel,
the wind load on a roof, or what ever you need.
We also have some knowledge and experience in this domain.
