Protection Shroud for Transformer and Switchgear Case Study
Listed below is a project application from concept to finish and we include a range of standard concepts for the power generation industry.
3D Printing of Pattern
Runfold Plastics provide complete control from CAD design to profile pattern completion providing our customers with a total supply process.
Casting now formed
Aluminium casting formed which is typically 1/10th of the cost of injection tooling, this provides reduced capital expenditure for entrance to the product market.
Dip moulding process taking place
The dip moulding process is unique in terms of profiling a mould that would be difficult with other plastic processes as seen in the dip moulding pictures here.
Shown here is the customer’s profile moulding as applied to their specific application.
As our natural environment takes on ever increasing developments for new building and new road infrastructure more stress is place upon our power distribution systems for reliability and safety of the networks.
Power outages are a major cost to utility companies, creating inconvenience to customers and a strain upon the local economy.
In many cases as we expand the network for supply demand, we are having to contend with wildlife interfering with the distribution of electricity. When an outage is created by a wildlife outage often the resulting outage fine is expensive to the utility generator.
