Disc brakes are a common mechanism used in almost every industry. From an engineering perspective, their primary purpose is to turn rotational energy into heat energy, with the end goal of controlling the speed of rotation. This leaves us with an overheating problem that if unchecked, can lead to the brakes failing. Read more →
This is Part 2 of a series of posts on Sparta’s production management system for manufacturing. You may want to read or watch Part 1 in this series before continuing.
In this video, I elaborate on some of the advantages of using an advanced production management system. I outline our production workflow and how the system increases the efficiency of the manufacturing process. Before watching the video, I encourage you to download the excel file to follow along with the video (optional but recommended)… Read more →
Sparta specializes in design for manufacturing and uses a stand-alone production management system that can be used by any manufacturing shop. This system is designed to help manufacturers build Sparta products more efficiently and gives project managers a tool to organize and interact with our drawings… Read more →
You may already know a little about how we approach a design problem. Whether it be designing spreader bars and lifting beams or equipment for use in low temperatures, engineers at Sparta are always evaluating design and improving the process design for manufacturing (often referred to as “manufacturability”). Anyone familiar with product development and engineering design will know that there are two absolute truths… Read more →
Sparta’s engineers have a lot of love for QT 100 high tensile plate steel. By using this high strength material that is roughly twice the strength of normal mild steels, Sparta reduced the amount of materials used and overall weight of the Sparta plate steel mast that was engineered for the service and workover rigs. These enhancements… Read more →
Sparta Engineering tends to attract a very specific type of person. This person is usually a high caliber engineer with a high degree of creativity. We love working with these types of people because they are always bringing fresh ideas and fresh thoughts to the table. However, like any great designer, if you cage them or don’t let them exercise their creativity enough, they are a little like a Ferrari in a traffic jam… Read more →
Using a company wiki for employee collaboration and training is a new initiative at Sparta Engineering that recently spawned from our first FedEx Day.
The Sparta Fedex Day involved taking a day off from day-to-day activities to allow employees to work in small groups to solve problems. For those of you that don’t know what a FedEx Day is, the concept came from… Read more →
SPARTA ENGINEERING is a leader in mechanical design for manufacturing. Working closely with world class manufacturers, our engineers are highly trained to produce a product that complements a shop’s manufacturing capabilities.
