Re-inventing the wheel

Re-designing the wheel

The client engaged SGW Designworks with a bold vision for improved drive systems in a specific industrial application. Low production cost and light weight were critical to the commercial success of the concept, as was the ability to support massive loads. This drive assembly was analyzed and re-engineered by SGW Designworks to be manufactured entirely from injection molded glass-filled nylon. DuPont joined the project team to help with the specific custom formulation.

 

R&D Pushing the limits

The loads that the drive system must support push the entire drive assembly to the limit. Advanced finite element analysis, simulation, and geometry iteration were required to defined designs that will provide reliable service in a critical application.

By engaging SGW Designworks, the client (an emerging business) was able to develop and launch a cutting-edge new product without the overhead of a full internal Research & Development department.
