Design and reverse engineering services at Cyrus-RW Group

The design and reverse engineering division of Cyrus-RW Group can trace its roots back to many years of service primarily in the  mechanical heavy engineering sector of the steel and aluminium industry. Since its conception it has grown to include customers such as  Tata UK, Catnic, Timet UK, Siniat and many other customers. This service has grown over the past ten years from single part reworking and design to complete concepts, including electrical and hydraulic systems.

Cyrus-RW have invested in top of the range design drawing packages which cover three dimensional drawing, including  pipe work, electrical  and structural disciplines. We can offer finite analysis of multiple part designs.

To supplement our design capability and to offer bespoke reverse engineering capability Cyrus-RW have invested in a Faro measuring arm, and laser scanner. This can be directly downloaded to our 3D computer programs.

To date we have completed many turn key projects a few are listed below:


Hydraulic Operated roll cylinder checking rig for Corus.

Corus had a problem with hydraulic load cylinders leaking in their mill, causing them to have off gauge products and loss of production down time.

At Cyrus-RW we came up with a solution to design a rig to test the integrity of the four hydraulic rams on a completed roll assembly prior to fitting in to the mill, thus proving the assembly fit for purpose. The operating pressure of the rig was 3000 PSI.

The rig consisted of a fully fabricated and machine base with four hydraulic operated arms closing in and locked in position over a fully loaded roll assembly.

An integrity test was then carried out. On completion four base hydraulic cylinders would operate to return the roll assembly back in to the closed position. With the locks removed and arms opened, this enabled the roller assembly to be removed and ready to be placed into production.

We have also completed cylinder design lifting frames coil handling scissor lifts for bespoke applications. e.g. Mandrels for 25 coil capacities tooling for various manufacturing processes. Cyrus-RW has the mechanical and electrical capacity to manufacture and install various equipment to our customers specifications.
