Lateral Engineering began operation in early 1999, and now operates from Engineering House in North Melbourne. The two principles are degree qualified engineers and each have over 20 years experience.
Tim Adam BE Mech (Hons), CPEng
After graduating with honours in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Melbourne in 1987, Tim worked for 10 years as an engineering consultant undertaking machinery trouble-shooting and re-design activities throughout all states of Australia, plus PNG.
Tim was involved in field measurements using multi-channel techniques based around vibration and strain gauge signals. His expertise in sophisticated theoretical methods such as modal-, finite element-, stress- and fatigue analysis, was used in conjunction with the field data to solve complex machinery based problems.
For the last 10 years these structured problem solving and engineering skills have been extended and applied beyond the machine to consider the improvements to plant-wide systems and the products being manufactured. Tim’s areas of expertise:
> Production capability and throughput analysis
> Fundamental engineering analysis
> Structured problem solving
> Machinery investigations
> Conceptual design of plant and product
> Machinery and product detail design
> Finite Element Modelling & Simulation
> Field measurements & testing
Tim's specialist skills can be used to design practical, appropriate, engineered solutions to your real-world problems.
