Our Pneumatic Automation Design Process for Passenger Safety

Passenger safety plays an important role in the design and build of buses. Part of this is to ensure that a person or object won't get trapped in the door or be caused any harm when entering or leaving the bus.

We were approached by Coachwork Central, a NZ builder and manufacturer of coaches, to come up with a pneumatic automation design for their doors that was reliable and sensitive to the close door movements and would ensure passenger safety. Read more about the solution we designed here.



Helping NZ Businesses Grow

Fix & Fogg is fast becoming an iconic NZ company, known for producing quality and delicious nut butters. In fact, their butters are so good, they’ve won accolades here in NZ and internationally. Since starting production from a tiny factory in 2014, the demand for their product has seen them expand three times!

An increase in demand for product means an increase in production and air supply, and we’ve been able to assist Fix & Fogg with meeting their air demands needs through their significant growth. Read more about this success story here.

Remote Control Design for Chip Spreaders

Due to safety concerns of their chip spreader operators, civil construction company Higgins were after a remote control that would allow operators to control the gate from a safe distance when the chip spreader reversed to drop the chip onto hot tar. Click here to read about the application we built to do just that and how we have recently enhanced this design.
