Featured Projects:

Modular Housing Stands

Engineers at Ransford Engineering conducting a prototype design review for a new mechanical device.

We supported another local design firm to perform iterative computational analysis of an easy to transport stand for modular houses. Repeatedly tweaking the design and running the analyses, we were able to quickly design a stand that supported the loads they required without the need for expensive retooling.

Custom IP Rated Electrical Enclosures

Safety and efficiency are paramount in aerospace maintenance, and our expertise in custom designs ensures the best solutions. We conceptualized and designed a custom scissor lift work platform for maintenance functions on Boeing 787 landing gear. The platform increased safety measures, streamlined maintenance tasks, and allowed our client to work more efficiently.

Oil and Gas Silo Lift Plan

Ransford Engineering's custom-designed below-the-hook lift fixture. The fixture is attached securely to the oil and gas silo, ready for the engineered lift.

We designed a custom lift fixture design and execution strategy for a 36 ft tall, 120,000 lb. oil and gas silo.

Wind Turbine Component Redesign

A micro wind-turbine company hired us to redesign the mechanical components inside their nacelle and lay out the electrical PCB and wire routing. We completely redesigned the slip ring components to extend the life of the product and also assisted them with water-proofing design changes that helped to prevent corrosion in harsh environments.
