Pow Technologies has developed their knowledge in the design, analysis, simulation, and testing of mechanically driven structures/equipment that experience high-cycled and dynamic loads. This experience has been developed by analyzing and testing structural/mechanical failures in a system to develop reliable and safe designs with predictable outcomes. This is practiced for mechanical-structural mining/hoisting equipment, entertainment rides and structures, large free-standing structures in seismic areas, Bridges, Highway Overhead Signs, and High Rise Tuned Massed Dampers on International projects.

Process Design, Mechanical, Structural, Controls, Welding, Civil, and Virtual Simulation We have in-house engineers and trusted partners for projects
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.
TURNKEY DELIVERY OF
STRUCTURES AND EQUIPMENT
DESIGN OPTIMIZATION, ADVANCED
ANALYSIS, SIMULATION & TESTING
Our advanced analysis, engineering, and turnkey delivery capabilities provides us with a unique position to design, develop, and commission unique or one-of-a-kind structures and equipment. Some examples have included boundary layered wind tunnels, entertainment rides, edge walks, large, overhead moving structures, custom building features for princes, and equipment to perform new or complex tasks in a vast industry spectrum.
In order to validate and optimize new or existing deisgns, we perform computer analysis and testing, destructive and non-destructive testing, and design optimization. This is to ensure reliability and to enhance the lifetime of capital equipment and structures.
Ranging from Automotive Carriers, Large Concert Stages, to Super Structures, POW has been using our core competencies to ensure reliability, safety, and function. We perform engineering and analysis services for all industries that experience dynamic loads on their equipment or structures.
Redesign, Re-Furbish, Re-Purpose of existing equipment. This service is generally used for when capital equipment has failed, about to fail, a new model line, or to optimize a piece of equipment for new loads or cycle times. This includes large equipment in Manufacturing Plants that need to lift or transfer heavy products.
POW’s Welding Engineers and Inspectors have been providing Welding Engineering Retainer Services for over 20 years. This is done with our Retainer Services for Fabrication Shops. We also perform Ultrasonic Impact Treatment for welds to extend the lifetime of welded structures and equipment.
