Often heavy equipment investigations require a mix of engineering disciplines and ESi has both academic and hands-on experience of sufficient breadth to deal with most any loss. Our engineers have not only investigated losses when things went wrong, but also have published technical papers on related technical issues including rigging, pipe design, hydraulics systems, and safety. ESi has applied this expertise to help manufacturers and users of the equipment safely integrate heavy equipment into daily work tasks.
When industrial equipment is involved with personal injury or large losses, ESi has the experience and expertise to assist our clients. Material processing equipment, like wood chippers, metal shredders, recycling equipment, compactors, and conveyor equipment present complex investigative challenges when accidents happen. Losses and injuries involving manufacturing centers, specialized manufacturing equipment, and heavy tools like drop-hammers, extrusion machines, and numerically controlled machines often require a combination of products specialists, quality experts, and safety experts to understand and analyze the cause of losses.
Lifting loads, lifting people, and moving products around a manufacturing facility requires both well designed and integrated equipment and human-machine interfaces. ESi has experience investigating and reporting on losses involving material handling equipment, conveyors, industrial trucks (i.e., fork trucks), man lifts, earth moving and paving equipment, elevators, and cranes.
Whether the loss requires a machine designer, a materials specialist, a process engineer, quality expertise, or a technical writer, ESi has the experience and analysis capability to help.
