In this case, GreenLab Technologies designed a Trailer that automatically loads and unloads harvesting bins in Orchards. After receiving a Statement of requirements from the customer, we research and plan a mechanized solution to the problem. A conceptual design is then presented to the customer and after approval, we start to configure and design the features which are then converted into a digital Prototype. If required by the customer or application, a complete software simulation (FEA/Inventor Studio) will be done. Prior to production of the first prototype, part-, weldment – and assembly drawings, DXF’s, bills of material and buy part lists are produced as part of production preparation. After managing the production, the Prototype will be tested extensively. Always revising and testing the revisions until a completely functioning first Prototype is available to the customer.
It is safe to say that we are one of a few companies in South Africa that work according to EN and DIN. We strive to be up to date with technology and constantly keep updating design methods and manufacturing processes.
