Mechanical Engineering

Spearpoint Engineering undertakes design of mechanical system. Our fundamental knowledge in the field of solid and fluid mechanics, access and ability to use various licences of the state-of-the-art software suite uniquely positions us to serve industry with key capability in the field FEA, CFD, DEM, Hydraulic and Pneumatic Analysis.
Spearpoint Engineering execute mission-profile driven design of new machines and structural steelworks.
Utilization of the state-of-the art computer aided design software for Computer-aided Draughting (CAD) to support design development, Finite Element Modelling and Analysis (FEM and FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics Analysis (CFD), Discrete Element Modelling and Analysis (DEM), Hydraulic and Pneumatic Modelling and Analysis for simulation to synthesize and define the physical design, evaluate and validate final design. We also perform DEM in the existing plant to advise on the process optimization. This involves the feed into the mills, screens, chutes and crushers.
Design of bulk solid material handling system like silos, bins, chutes and conveyor belts.
Design of underground mining dewatering system including pump selection, piping and buffer storage system.
Analysis of thermal comforts for indoors and underground mining ventilated spaces.
We have extensive experience and expertise with the performance testing of Roll-over Protective Structures (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS) according to the relevant standards.

Development of analytical models to establish useful thickness of the components like the shell of grinding-mills, shell of the silos and bins and slurry piping system designed with damage tolerant design philosophy.

This can be verified with the field NDT to make better justified maintenance decision during product life cycle.
