All sides of this particular box had to be squashed inwards from the natural resting state in order for the lid to shut and hold reliably. The project […]

Cycle Testing Machine

BRIEF Halter, a fast paced start-up based in Auckland, approached us asking for a custom accelerated life testing machine for their digital cow collars. The machine had to perform 1 cycle per second on 10 collars at once, resulting in a peak loading of around 200kg. The cycle involved both a twisting component (x) and […]

BRIEF As a part of the development of our own industrial 3D printer, we required a filament feeder that could keep a constant upward pressure on the filament entering the tube to reduce strain on the printhead motor. In addition to this, we wanted continuous filament monitoring, run-out detection, and the ability to load 2 […]
