Pirtek is an Australian company that supplies hydraulic fittings and pipes for a large variety of machines. Swadek Contruction sub contracted PFDE in 2003 to design a canopy that will house and transport Pirtek hydraulic parts and fitment equipment on a long wheelbase utility vehicle. The vehicle enabled the owner to perform hydraulic services on sight, in stead of taking more than two working days to perform the work in a remote work shop.
This canopy had to be light as well as strong. It had to be very rugged as it had to operate in the harsh mining environment provided by the South African Highveld.
Our responsibilities were as follows:
Measurements and research of the vehicle
DXF generation for lazer cutting
