FolwMaster Gate-Valve is a personal project develped by me in 2010 to to check my Finite Element Analysis (FEA) capabilty in SolidWorks. It was done after I successfully design the very batch of oil accesories for FlowMasters Ltd, in Port Harcourt, Nigeria for one of its client. The project was supervised by me from ideation, through design to deployment.
Then, majority of the testing done on the part was manually which added additional cost to the overall cost of the project. Hence, I decided to explore how much accurate a software generated test could conform with the laboratory test of the same product. Hence, I started the trial in our licensed 2007 SolidWorks SP.
Bingo! this simple trial cut down the manufacturing cost at FlowMasters Ltd by 40% and increase the delivery speed by 60%.
