Regent engaged the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) to carry out a structural analysis of the baseplate products, to assess their performance and to decrease the manufacturing cost.
The MTC constructed a number of assessments on the baseplate under different conditions and analysed the results to gain the best possible outcome.
Current baseplate products were tested under load conditions experienced in severe gale-force winds. A range of down-guaged models were also trialled, to assess if different sheet metal materials or a reduction in the sheet gauge thickness was potentially viable as an alternative.
Our interaction with the MTC team has been very productive. They are quick to understand our technical requirements. MTC's reporting gets to the heart of the issues we need investigating. We shall certainly continue to use their resources
