Specialised Mechanical Engineering Services by Haald

The Latest Engineering Design Technology

Haald are committed to providing our clients with design and drawing solutions that are innovative and practical by constantly pursuing cutting edge technology and engineering innovation. Our dedicated team utilises the latest techniques in 3D modelling, FEA (Finite Element Analysis) & DEM (Discrete Element Analysis) and is constantly seeking improvement in design, development and engineering solutions.

3D Modelling

Our specialist team is highly experienced and skilled in using the latest 3D modelling and animation software. With licenses of Pro Engineer Wildfire, SolidWorks, NavisWorks and AutoCad, Haald can perform a wide range of design work and detailing services on large projects involving big assemblies. We have recently completed the design of the complete Coal Handling and Preparation Plant for the Cameby Downs coal mine located in the Surat Basin, Qld, using the 3D modeling software ProEngineer Wildfire 3.

FEA (Finite Element Analysis)

Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerised method for predicting how a component/ assembly will react to environmental factors such as forces, heat, and vibration. A computer model of a material or design is stressed and analysed for specific results ensuring that the design can meet deformation, stress, vibration and/or temperature specifications for specified worst-case configurations.

Haald has used FEA stress analysis for the design of material modules for the ADF as well as the design review of Royal Wolf Curtain Side Container and many other projects.

DEM (Discrete Element Analysis)

Discrete Element Method is a technique used for the simulation and analysis of particle flow situations providing information on particle kinematics, momentum, heat and mass transfer.

For the Abbot Point Bucket Wheel Reclaimer project Haald has used EDEM discrete element particle analysis software to model the flow of material through the Reclaim components with the aim of optimising the chute design.
Simulations to optimise geometry were carried out with the bucket wheel operating in the horizontal position:
  • DEM simulation of the original equipment
  • Simulations to optimise geometry were carried out with the bucket wheel operating in the horizontal position.
