Site Survey

Alongside our extensive manufacturing capabilities, we also offer on-site surveys as a service. We use the latest GPS technology in order to provide surveys which will cover large areas, quickly.

Due to the restrictions of GPS, we also carry traditional and laser measuring equipment to ensure that all areas can be surveyed, regardless of any near buildings, trees or other coverages which may obscure GPS data.

These surveys can be provided to fit most CAD formats. We use these surveys ourselves to aid in the design and manufacture of bespoke, made-to-measure products.

3D Printing Rapid Prototyping

With our in-house 3D printing technology, we are able to rapidly produce one-off prototypes. We are able to print up to a maximum volume of 220 x 220 x 300mm. We can produce these models in a variety of filaments, including ABS or PLA. PLA is a biodegradable material, made from natural resources such as corn starch.

This prototyping method is highly effective in aiding in the visualisation of a product, in 3D, before committing to more time-consuming and expensive manufacturing processes.

  • One-off prototyping at a rapid pace
  • A choice of ABS and PLA printing materials
  • 3D visualisation of the product concepts

Finite Element Analysis

The use of software can now bypass the countless iterations of physical modelling. We can apply FEA techniques to your individual problem, to provide a simulation of how a component or product may perform under strain. Solid CAD models can be meshed and loaded to give insight into part longevity and effectiveness.

  • Individualised approach
  • Insight into longevity and effectiveness of parts

Structural Analysis

Our years of experience and vast expertise in the Loading and Deflection of Lighting Columns means we can produce results which you can trust. Data collected first hand from onsite visits can be fed into complex structural analysis software, able to produce realistic simulations of columns. Whether you’re looking to add new elements to an existing project, or simply review your existing assets, Fabrikat can give you confidence that your columns are loaded safely.

  • Analysis of current column loading
  • Analysis of the effect of additional attachments
  • Advice on specification changes to bring column within safe loading

Non-Destructive Testing

With many columns in the UK coming to the end of their predicted lifespans, it has never been more important to have a sound knowledge of your existing assets. Using Ultrasonic Section thickness testing, we can calculate the degradation of an existing column or structure, as well as gather more information on the asset to give the customer an in-depth understanding of their assets.

  • TR22 Compliant
  • HERS, HEA and G39 Accredited
