Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided-Engineering (CAE)
TTF stresses on high quality product and services to our customer. In the design and analysis process, high quality control and analysis is placed in the company’s design and production. TTF invested a large capital stressing on CAD / CAE software to ensure the quality and continual improvement of the products.
TTF incorporates 3D modelling CAD for design and modelling capacity, reduces error in design and easier to market. Also, this ensure the accuracy and quality in TTF’s products.
To ensure the quality of the products, TTF uses state-of-the-art Computer-Aided-Engineering (CAE) Cosmos Works to perform simulation and structural analysis. Cosmos Works incorporates the technology Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to study the factor of safety, deflection for the structure. Generally, FEA is a method of simulating physical systems, in the area of:
- Static structural mechanics
- Motion kinematics and kinetics
- Heat dynamics
- Fluid dynamics
- Buckling analysis
- Frequency analysis
- Design optimization
FEA breaks down the model into millions of discrete elements, and then performs calculation on each element to provide a fairly accurate simulation and forecast of the design done.
The analysis is done with accurate moulding of the parts and assembly, and then loaded with the working load on the beams. Actual testing is done to validate against the analysis, and the result are found to be within 10% accuracy. The FEA tool aids TTF are accurately stimulate and predict every design. The result is provides a quality product to our customers.
Tested Report & Certificate
As an endorsement of our product quality and the desire to achieve ISO9001:2000 status, we annually subject our products to a stringent SIRIM QAS compression test. All our racking shelves were subjected through extreme load tests’ and was given the highest SIRIM approval ratings. We are proud to say that our products are next to none in the competitive industry of racking systems.
Compression Test: Adoption To ASTM D642
Light Duty Racking System
Medium Duty Racking System
Heavy Duty Racking System
TTF’s status as the leading producer of high-quality racking systems was further booster when it was awarded the industry’s highest certificate. The FIRA award is an international recognition awarded to TTF Marketing Holdings Sdn Bhd (407754-H), further propelling itself as the industry leader in the region.
Health and Safety
At TTF, we promote safe working practices and as a supplier of a product that has significant safety implications, we work closely with our customers to minimise the chance of accidents.
It’s true to say that you will never see a rack installation looking like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Racks are either vertical or they fall over, and racks falling over is something that everybody wants to avoid. As a manufacturer, TTF is always striving to promote safe working practices and ensures that we design, produce and install our products to the highest safety standards.
In addition, there is the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 (OSHA) that places personal responsibility upon employers and employees to work within the law and eliminate unsafe practices. Employers must provide a safe working environment, and employees must act in such a manner to ensure his or her safety and that of their workmates.
TTF Racking Design Standards
At TTF we work closely with our customers and together with our design standards to ensure maximum safety and effectiveness. Products from TTF complies with international design standards and requirments such as:
- Australian Cold Formed Structures Code – A.S 1538 1988
- Australian Standard for Steel Storage Racking – A.S 40841993
- R.M.I. 1980 Industrial Steel Storage Racks
- British Standards 5950 Pt5 1985 Code of Practice for the design of cold rolled section in steel
