Self-Powered Single-Axis Tracker (SPST)
Design For Manufacture (DFM)
We are excited to have worked with Ceramet Solar on the development of their new intelligent and adaptable solar tracking system. This is the only Australian designed and made self-powered, ultra-low maintenance and rapid assembly single-axis technology of its kind. Our design and engineering activities included calculations and simulations to ensure the product met robust standards for both wind and snow loading, providing Ceramet a flexible product capable of being delivered and installed across a wide variety of climates.
Key to the mechanical design of the tracking system was a solution that provided quick and easy assembly. We took advantage of Ceramet's existing expertise in pressed metal manufacturing to create parts that interlocked, self-earthed and aligned easily for rapid fastening.
