If you are active in mechanical engineering or heavy industry, you know that a construction has to meet many requirements. At Vicoma we always go for the optimum solution in performance, reliability, lifespan, maintenance and safety. The specialists in our Mechanical & Structural Steel department have years of extensive knowledge of mechanics, strengths and drive technology. They look beyond the scope – for new possibilities and ideas – and are happy to share them with you, the client.
From life cycle calculations to complex mechanical constructions
Whatever your challenge is, the specialists in our Mechanical & Structural Steel department take an innovative and incisive approach. They carry out life cycle calculations, inspections of existing structures and renovations of heavy machinery and installations. Examples include upgrading a crane so it can lift heavier loads, or creating a new chimney that produces fewer emissions. Vicoma has built up considerable expertise in designing often complex mechanical constructions and parts that are subject to heavy loads in terms of forces, moments and fatigue.
The phases of a Mechanical & Structural Steel project
At Vicoma we like to relieve our customers of as much of their worries as possible, both when designing new installations and when improving existing constructions to meet current requirements. Thanks to Vicoma’s flat business structure our specialists are close to you as a customer. Roughly speaking we go through the following phases:
- We discuss your wishes and expectations as a customer
- We draw up a basis or a proposal
- After we have discussed our proposal, we work it out in more detail
- We think outside the box and use our advanced analysis tools and simulation models to arrive at an optimum design
- If we can improve existing structures for you, we provide a customised solution
