Design & Manufacture
CKF continues to invest in the latest software for design and simulation. All of our solutions are created with the assistance of 3D modelling which provides a real insight into the finished job. Mechanical design utilises Inventor 3D CAD software allowing components and assemblies to be rotated and manipulated providing full visualisation for both the designer and the customer. The electrical design team employ the use of both AutoCAD Electrical and E-Plan.
The beauty of 3D designs is that unlike the traditional design drawings which many people find difficult to interpret fully, 3D CAD software brings to life the project. Complex systems can be simulated to verify throughputs, efficiencies and potential bottle necks using the computerised simulation package Witness.
Mechanical fabrication and manufacture together with panel build and wiring are all carried out in-house within our state-of-the-art facility in Gloucester, with a large area for full system assembly enabling Factory Acceptance Testing of the system prior to shipping.
