Technical Resources

wide-ranging capability - conceptual design, analysis, modelling, detailed design, concurrent engineering approach

Engineering comes first at MacTaggart Scott. The 50 strong Engineering Department is equipped with a range of analytical and programme management software:

  • 3D Computer modelling: Pro/Engineer CAD
  • Stress Analysis : FEA ( Mechanica), ANSYS
  • Mathematical modelling: Mathcad, Simulink, LabVIEW

Advanced sealing techniques and proven materials/coating technologies are available for marine devices.

Our leadership in the innovation of Mechanical Engineering Systems is due to the careful recruitment and development of our engineers. Creative solutions to a wide range of high-integrity handling and drive problems require the perfect balance of professional experience and engineering invention. We are proud of an atmosphere that encourages new ideas and challenges the constraints and limits of technology.

The engineering team has an ideal mixture of strong individuals, integrating our internationally renowned experts with the very best young graduate recruits in an IMechE or IET accredited development environment; all take personal responsibility for product integrity and evolution.

MacTaggart Scott has a wide-ranging capability with conceptual design, analysis, CAE & mathematical modelling on the same site as a comprehensive manufacturing and full-scale test facility. This structure ensures an optimised concurrent engineering approach and enables reliable project management and effective risk analysis.
