We were asked by one of our large Defence Support customers to design and manufacture a range of portable flushing rigs to be used in Naval Warship applications.

Although existing units were already in use, they were nearly 30 years old; they were large, cumbersome and the technology was out of date.

Our brief was to supply units that were at least 25% smaller in size but also at least 25% lighter, with added new technology to be in line with today’s requirements.

Utilising our Solidworks 3D computer-aided design software, our technical team came up with a proposal that not only met but exceeded the brief required. The first six units were delivered on time and in full.

The utilisation of Solidworks is a great platform to show customers exactly what they will get and is a superb tool for our internal technical team to design systems in very fine detail.
