The design process does not end at the drawing table

After agreeing on the concept, Huygens Engineers will work out the detailed design for the mechanical and electrical/control disciplines. Once the detailed 3D packages are ready and the needed detailed control-related choices is ready, we also create all 2D machine drawings. These drawings define various specifications for each component, such as the tolerance structure and the location of important baseline points. We also consider the possibilities of the considered production and assembly facility. Assembly aspects are also included in the drawings. Throughout the entire design process, the drawings remain fully accessible to the client via an internal portal. In this phase a parametric modelling environment (SolidWorks, NX, Inventor) is equally productive and we work in any environment. We use Simulink for control validation. 

Realisation and delivery may be part of the scope, in which case Huygens will do the control-work and validation work in-house and subcontract assembly activities. Even if realization and delivery is not within our scope, the design process does not end at the drawing table. The focus of every project remains practical. Our clients can come to us for every design and implementation step. The project capacity varies by phase, depending on the amount of work. This prevents unnecessary costs. During the detailing, we draw in Creo Elements/Direct, SOLIDWORKS and Siemens NX.

Advanced cutting machine for plastic modules

For a manufacturer of connected conveyor belts, Huygens Engineers designed a machine that cuts plastic modules of various shapes at high speed and with great temperature-compensated accuracy. This facilitates the efficient realisation of conveyor belts ordered for a specific width. The detailed de-sign for the machine was challenging, as is mainly consists of independent, functional elements. Fur-thermore, the design had to keep view of the high precision, speed and considerable cutting forces. This required detailed distortion analysis and precise calculations of cycle durations, accelerations and deceleration paths to eventually find a well-thought-out detailed design.

Testing and measuring setup for motorised rollers

Huygens Engineers designed an improved setup for testing and measuring motorised rollers for conveyor belts. The client initially used friction blocks and force sensors to achieve this but wanted more precise measurements of the forces on the product and of the load on the motorised rollers. Additionally, there was a request to test the starting and stopping behaviour. Our advanced setup uses a servo motor to accurately load the motorised rollers. This allows the client to test every type of engine in their own workshop.
