Starting your own engineering department can provide your business a wide range of benefits, from being able to complete projects faster, hiring the employees that work specifically for you, taking on more business and much more. Read more →
Canada is cold, and if you are in the heavy-lifting industry then this is something you need to be aware of when using your equipment. In fact, using your lifting equipment properly in cold conditions is essential to the proper functioning and longevity of your equipment. Read more →
A rollover protective structure (ROPS) is a structure designed to protect heavy equipment operators from injuries that are caused during machinery overturns or rollovers.
Similar to a roll cage in a race car, a ROPS is made by bars that attach to the frame of the machinery that maintain a space that’s large enough for the body of the operator in the case of the machine rolling over. Read more →
A telescopic handler, or telehandler, can be used as a crane, power elevated platform or a forklift, but most importantly the equipment must be safe to use and the operator must be competent in their job to prevent serious accidents from occurring.
In fact, accidents with telehandlers happen on a regular basis across the world, and companies must be aware of best practices in order to minimize these risks. Read more →
Sparta Engineering started as a design firm for agricultural related items. This includes anything that pertained to agriculture in small town Alberta. This was a great place for feeling that creative bug [for being innovative] and getting those ideas out there. Farmers are open to new ideas. From there it evolved into mobile equipment for oil and gas and well servicing. Read more →
At Sparta Engineering, we rely heavily in computer simulations, what is technically known as Finite Element Analysis (FEA). These computer simulations work by taking larger, very complex geometry and breaks it up into thousands of tiny, simple parts that interact together (A good analogy of this is a Lego structure, where a complex object is actually comprised of many smaller, simple parts)… Read more →
The pump truck manifold is the series of valving and piping that allows control of the pressurized fluid from the triplex pump on a pump truck. I will be focusing primarily on the service rig pump truck for now. 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 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.
