- The design and manufacture of small (benchtop) Mechanical Strength Testing Machines (see products).
- Subcontract design and manufacture of mechanical and electronic components, assemblies and products (see facilities).
Our mechanical workshop facilities include CNC machining centres & lathes, whilst our electronics workshop has facilities for analogue & digital design, prototyping and manufacture, including microcontroller firmware development.
With the aid of a Department of Trade and Industry Smart award, a range of Desktop Mechanical Strength Testing machines was designed and manufactured by Engineering Systems.
Assisted by a Regional Enterprise Grant and in conjunction with Oxford University Department of Materials, the CK10, a sophisticated 1 Tonne compression & crack testing machine, was developed. This is used for testing the strength of engineering & medical ceramic components.
A new mechanical strengh testing machine, the C53, has recently been designed under a KTP programme in partnership with Staffordshire University.
The load cells (range 1gm to 1tonne) used in all our testing machines are designed & manufactured by Engineering Systems.
Subcontact work include '../include/s the design and manufacture of asphalt core testing machines, gyratory compactor compression testing machines etc. for contractors use and for use in road research labs.
