The team have been busy working on converting 20ft shipping containers into relocatable hook-truck recycling containers. The containers are fitted with insert chutes and internal doors to enable the separation of different coloured glass and plastics. The current batch are being shipped to the West Coast of the South Island to meet the needs of our growing tourist industry.
The client will then fit their sign writing graphics to compliment the local environment. These containers are essentially recycled themselves, and we have grit-blasted and repainted them with specialised container paints to ensure their new life off the ocean is set up well for the future.
We are proud to have supplied another Hydraulic Folding frame in December 2017. Our client requested the frame to be painted John Deere green and fitted with our 16mm Combo (spike & chain) harrows. The harrows will be used for clod break-up, trash removal and some seed covering. We build robust equipment to many widths, feel free to contact the team on 0800 HARROWS to find out more.
Lyndon Engineering have recently completed another conveyor system for a fast-paced industrial customer in the printing industry. The conveyor has an in-built speed control system and regulated motor drive running a calibrated poly cord flatbed.
The team working on the Lyndon Viticulture project known as the ‘Terroir 180’, have presented their design and fabrication overview at the University of Canterbury Engineering campus. Engineers from Lyndon Engineering provided a brief to the Canterbury University to look at solutions to soil improvements in the viticulture and horticultural industry. A team of fourth year students used this brief as part of their final year degree requirements for ‘real world’ solutions in New Zealand.
With some external interest already in being part of this project and its market development in the future, prospects are looking very interesting for the team at Lyndon Engineering over the coming years.
Lyndon Engineering not only build their own equipment and commercial machinery, we also provide a contract machine design and fabrication service. We can assist with the CAD design based on your ideas, sourcing competitive pricing on components and fabricating your machine into a saleable product. Our knowledge covers steel work, pneumatics, hydraulics, travelling systems and product delivery systems. Bring us your idea and lets work together to bring your product to the market, all with the confidence of retaining your design and IP.
The Lyndon Engineering development team are finalising the design for their viticulture soil improvement system after many months of market research. Field trials begin in late May for the machine known as the ‘Terroir 180’ which will improve a vineyards and general horticultural soil structure.
The project team includes four 4th year University of Canterbury Engineering professionals, along with Elton Hyde and Richard Butler from Lyndon Engineering. The development project involves a range of engineering disciplines including steel fabrication, pneumatics, electronics, hydraulics and flow control.
If you would be interested in your vineyard to be part of our trial process in the Spring of 2017 please contact Elton Hyde at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on +64 3 3478516. If you have a soil depth of at least 300mm then our trials will be suited to your environment.
A big thanks to the boys from Charter Transport who helped us with a double crane lift with some pipe and screen work on a recent job. They worked safely and quickly to help us get our work in to position. We have some exciting projects coming up and we know we can trust the Charters team to provide assistance with a wide range of crane trucks and help with methodology as well. Contact Lyndon Engineering for help with any engineering project in the Christchurch and Selwyn areas.
The team at Lyndon Engineering welcomed the challenges of this Selwyn District Council project that included fabrication, galvanising and installing at site of galvanised cantilevered beams, posts, overhead walkways and intake protection screens. These screens included a rotating-chain brush system run from an automated timer.
The team at Lyndon Engineering also supplied the temporary hole-punched alloy screens (seen on right hand intake) which can be easily removed for servicing. We look forward to working on many new projects in 2017 with our custom design and fabrication team.
