An OEM Customer currently had a weldment in a large piece of tillage equipment.
Customer was having issues with the mounting pins breaking.
Convert the weldment to a cost effective casting while reducing the breakage and failure in the application.
- ESP Engineering proposed a cast design combining the two weldments into one
- FEA Analysis revealed the design issue of current weldment
- Cast design moved some of the strain into other areas of the part, reducing the stress at the base of the pin
