Practical Solutions to Engineering problems

Do you need to investigate failures of machinery, improve reliability, or improve efficiency?

We have over 5 decades of practical experience in investigations of machinery problems across a wide range of industry sectors. We combine detailed theoretical knowledge with a hands-on approach to uncover the true causes of a problem, and offer practical solutions that can be readily implemented.

Clients use us to investigate in-service failures, to assist with product development, and to advise on future design improvements.  We also are asked to act as Expert Witness in legal disputes.
