Ford Sniff Tester
When Ford reached out to Donald Engineering looking for a custom built validation test piece, DE delivered with a power air sampling unit incorporating products from Clippard and Divelbiss, showcasing DE's custom machining and fabrication capabilities.
Automatic Drill Fixture Controls without PLC
When an Aerospace Customer asked for assistance in designing and building a drill fixture, DECI delivered with a mobile machine base equipped with coolant reclamation and a pump and fitted a customer provided pneumatic powered drill head. The fixture has both auto and manual controls operating the drill head, as well as coolant pump control, filtration and level monitoring. This machine is mobile and operates entirely on compressed air.
Custom Marine PLC Kit
To open and close doors, sunroofs, and hatches in applications specific to the marine industry, Donald Engineering developed a water-resistant and shockproof Programmable Logic Controller to withstand harsh vibration and moist atmospheric conditions. The PLC is equipped with multiple digital inputs and outputs and can be completely customized using simple ladder logic. This unit is capable of not only opening and closing a door, window or sunroof but also monitoring open and closed positions as well as performing safety checks to prevent injuries before closing.
Donald Engineering possesses the ability to expand this PLC with analog inputs and outputs as well as wireless communications in which the unit can notify anyone or anything of use, task completion, or system error via phone line.
Marine Air Compressor Assembly
To meet the specific application needs of the marine industry, Donald Engineering developed an air compressor assembly for air horn operation and other accessories on board such as the sunroof. This compact unit minimizes wasted space on the vessel and is designed to withstand the harsh operating conditions of the marine environment.
