Tomorrow’s Designs Today
Genesis Technology Systems has dedicated the last 11 years to quality drafting work to be proud of. See some of our completed projects below.
Banked Running Track
In 2014, while working with Mitchell Machine works on several equipment drafts for the turf industry, we were approached to draft new hydraulic banked running tracks for indoor running competitions. The tracks consisted of over 60,000 parts, all structural steel, and hydraulically controlled to facilitate the incline in the turns. Building all this inside of IronCAD was extremely easy since there was no concern of having to constrain parts and assemblies. Therefore, minor changes during the design process was, well, a breeze. As a matter of fact, the whole process itself and the finished drafts caught the attention of engineering.com. You can find that article here.
Turf Seperation Conveyor
When I first started working with Mark Mitchell, I learned something very interesting. Artificial turf used in football stadiums is not just artificial grass. It also includes sand and rubber to make the playing surface softer when hitting the deck hard. The life span of a field is also between 10 and 15 years, at which point it requires replacement. Working with Mark, and using IronCAD, a new system was designed whereby the sand and rubber could be dumped into a hopper, and through a system of vibrating conveyors, would separate the components back into their individual items. At close to 10,000 parts and assemblies, the finished system went together beautifully and worked 100% as expected.
World Trade Center Bollard Covers
While working as a project manager for Shaw Stainless and Alloy, the company was awarded the project to develop and manufacture all of the decorative bollard covers that you see lining the streets all around the New World Trade Center. With over 1600 covers and 120 different designs to accommodate the slope of the sidewalks, the project was completed without a single design or manufacturing error.
Platforms, Conveyors, Misc.
Some of the more common products we assist our customers with are platforms, conveyors, tanks, etc. Our customers find that the quality and speed with which we are able to turn their projects around always meets or surpasses their expectations. One of my favorite compliments is when a project is complete, is to have our customer say “We were able to assemble this whole project and did not have to drill one single hole, did not have even one part out of place.”
No project is too complicated for Genesis. When asked about doing a unique ornamental support system for a mall in North Carolina, we jumped at the chance to take on the challenge. Tying in the angles of the piping to the decorative balls and having all the right dimensions for cutting out and aligning was an interesting task. But the end result was a beautiful product and a very satisfied customer.
