Highlights include:

  • Full mechanical, process and electrical in-house design facilities
  • 3D-CAE systems for engineering design, drawing, FEA analysis, vibration, modal and ODS analysis
  • Design work includes hazard evaluation, risk analysis, certification GAMP, ATEX etc. as required
  • Extensive facilities for programming a variety of industry standard PLC systems
  • Comprehensive test facilities with computer based data logging, vibration analysis, sound/power intensity and EMC compliance.

In-house facilities are supplemented by close links with leading academic institutions, other external research bodies and industry experts. Not only does this keep Broadbent at the forefront of new techniques, it gives us rapid access to an extensive range of specialist analytical techniques and test facilities.
