The level of interest expressed by industry professionals highlighted the immense potential this innovation holds for the future. This positive response further solidifies our position as a pioneer in
product innovation within the crane rail system sector. Not only did we have the chance to
engage with our existing customer base, but we also had the pleasure of establishing
valuable new contacts and leads. The exhibition provided an ideal platform to showcase our product portfolio and generate real interest among potential clients.

R&D Investment continues at Gantrail

We’re expanding our FEA capabilities to facilitate faster and more in-depth product development for our customers. Our new fatigue analysis module enables us to improve product robustness by leveraging S-N data and advanced features within SolidWorks. We’re applying this to the development of upcoming products such as the Boom Hinge System, where, in addition to physical testing, we can perform rapid iterative fatigue studies to simulate the various loading conditions around these rail joints. We pride ourselves on the technical expertise within the team and this upgrade is the latest example of our continued focus on R&D  – Jordan Hey, Technical Manager
