Achieving Compliance and Operator Protection: Virtual Validation of Heavy Machinery Cab Design

The design and validation of heavy machinery cabins play a crucial role in ensuring the safety of operators. AllyGrow performed a comprehensive assessment of a heavy machinery cab design for a renowned cab manufacturer. This enabled the cab manufacturer to make informed design improvements and confidently move towards physical prototyping and testing, ensuring a safe and robust heavy machinery cab.
With our expertise, we optimize designs for efficient production, ensure precision and compatibility, validate performance through virtual simulations, and facilitate a seamless transition to production. Our Engineering Design services, including DFM, DFA, and DFS checks, we optimize designs. We also provide precise Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) Plans to maintain consistency and compatibility in designs. Furthermore, our Engineering Proto Release process ensures a smooth transition from design to production, guaranteeing a seamless launch of innovative mobility solutions.

Overview

Industry : off-Highway Vehicles
Client / Location : EU

Challenge:

Virtually validate a heavy machinery cab design ensuring compliance with international safety standards. This involved evaluating falling object protection, rollover protection, impact resistance, diagonal impacts, occupant protection, & structural rigidity to enhance operator safety.

Solution:

  • Falling Object Protection: strength and structure were assessed to determine its ability to withstand impacts from falling objects.
  • Rollover Protection: structure and stability were evaluated to ensure occupant safety during rollover accidents.
  • Roof and Rear Wall Strength: Specific loads were applied to test the cab’s ability to withstand them without compromising occupant safety. Adequate space inside the cab was verified.
  • Diagonal Impact Performance: Tests conducted on the cab’s A pillar examined its resistance to impacts from different angles.
  • Component Rigidity Evaluation: The cab’s mounts, bunks, floor, and roof rigidity were assessed under specified loads to identify any deformations or damage that could pose risks to operator safety.
