Finite element analysis

Making sure Key Plant equipment works the way it was designed.

To assist design calculations Key Plant has the facility to use finite element analysis.

The helps our team with loading scenarios, material thickness and construction design on heavy components, especially evident on our range of heavy duty welding rotators and turning rolls.

Built to last. Made to perform.

High quality, robust, reliable and safe.

To ensure that our Key Plant equipment (especially our heavy duty range) is manufactured to the highest quality and operates the way it was designed. Our engineers and design teams use finite element analysis to predict real-world complexities, such as structural stress, deflection and vibrations.

The quality, durability and safeness of our equipment is paramount.
