Design transport system

Development of a transport system for shot peening machines with additional FEM calculation job

Freymatic AG is a manufacturer of shot peening systems for the aerospace industry, which are developed and produced under the Roxor product brand.

The tight schedule for this demanding project could not be met with their own resources. Therefore, experienced design engineers were requested from GRITEC at short notice.

Within 10 days, the project kick-off could take place with two design engineers from GRITEC. GRITEC employees are used to integrating themselves into the systems and working methods of the customer teams in the shortest possible time. This reduces the initial effort to a minimum.

In a short time, the GRITEC design engineers modeled several detailed solutions, developed a transport system with drive design and created the production drawings.

Most of this was done remotely by GRITEC employees. If necessary, design meetings were held directly on site at Freymatic in Domat/Ems.

In the course of the project, the calculation task of a safety-critical component for suspended loads arose. GRITEC was able to call in the calculation specialists immediately. This eliminated further external coordination efforts for Freymatic AG.

Martin Hunziker, CEO Freymatic AG:
"I am very satisfied with GRITEC's performance. Thanks to the efficient working methods of the GRITEC design engineers, we were able to keep to the sporty schedule and deliver the finished plant to our end customer on time".
