Life-Cycle and Reliability Analysis and Enhancement
Reinforcement, Modification, Repair, and Optimization
Automation and Controls
Our core competency is the Design, Build and Analysis of Dynamically Loaded Equipment and Structures. These capabilities have been developed through 30+ years of evaluating fatigue failures of various equipment and structures found in OEM Plants that see the highest cyclical loading profiles.
Each of our designs are custom tailored to the specific vehicle(s), part, conveyance, and process. We have extensive experience with the Toyota Production System and other lean assembly processes. We have a proven track record for reliable timing, engineering excellence, and quality assured fabrication.
We have in house structural, mechanical, civil, controls, and welding experts
Toyota – TMMC, TMMK, TMMI, TMMTX, TMMBC, TMMGT, TMMF

Process Design, Mechanical, Structural, Controls, Welding, Civil, and Virtual Simulation We have in-house engineers and trusted partners for projects
Our Engineering Horsepower is used to perform analysis, design, and build of our supplied equipment and structures. We also perform life-cycle analysis, and certification on existing equipment or equipment coming overseas.
Core competency that allows us to understand, predict, and optimize systems in order to develop solutions that are right the first time.
Analysis of Dynamically Loaded and High-Cycled Systems to ensure the strength and reliability is not compromised.
Strain Gauge Testing
Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Dynamic and Static Analysis
Life Cycle/ Fatigue Life
Accelerometer Analysis and Assessment
Non Linear & Linear Analysis
Proven ability to simulate processes and loads in a virtual environment in order to get predictable results. Includes Motion Studies, CFD Analysis, Dynamic Loading Simulations, etc.
Ability to keep large systems lightweight while maintaining strength and reliability. We also use metallurgy processes such as Ultrasonic Impact Treatment
We have systems and software set up to quickly turn our accepted designs into fabrication drawings in order to keep project efficiencies and steel moving from our fabrication shops to site
Division 1 shop, in house welding procedure engineers, welding retainers for over 150 fabrication shops in south-western Ontario, Ultrasonic Impact Treatment to improve the strength and fatigue life of weldments on new or existing systems
Ability to keep to timelines, manage and coordinate our responsibilities with other stakeholders in the project. Coordination with Site and Fabrication to provide JIT delivery of assemblies with highest install priority.
Different tools to manage site conditions, interferences, and installation tolerances. Includes 3D Scanners, Laser Installation Trackers, BIM Management, Photogrammetry, Commercial Drone Pilots, etc.
