Mechanical diagnostics, systems analysis,
mathematical modelling, hydraulic and mechanical refurbishment.
Built by NASA in the 1950s using the
hydraulic technology of the day, Avocet was a key consultant involved in
restoring its mechanical performance for commercial use. The dish is used daily
to receive data from satellites in polar orbits. Visit
Avocet undertakes contract design and stress
analysis related to rolling stock. Tasks have included upgrades of older stock
to new requirements, refurbishment, failure analysis and remedial design, and
new wagon design. We are proud to be associated with Bluebird Rail Operations.

Mechanical design, systems analysis and
mathematical modelling. Avocet worked
with the marine architect and the builders to design the wing actuation
mechanisms and model the craft’s sailing performance.
Complete mechanical design, manufacture
and commissioning of rotary indexing assembly machine, including computer
control. The machine operates in a clean room environment.
Mechanical development, design,
manufacture and testing.
Both principals were key consultants
covering all aspects of this challenging project in the 1980s, including the
mechanical design, hydraulics, control systems, instrumentation, electronics,
mathematics, software and hardware.
was closely involved in the development of this small high-speed turbine and
its electric motor.
Allan Wallace was a key consultant involved in
the development of Australia’s first commercial continuous extrusion process
for Vinidex PVC-O Supermain pressure
pipe. The task included: mathematical
modelling of the rheology, thermodynamic modelling, tooling design and
manufacture, process control, PLC programming, instrumentation and direct
involvement in testing.
