Woodward, Inc is an independent designer, manufacturer, and service provider of control solutions for the aerospace and energy markets. It offers innovative fluid, electricity and motion control systems. Today the company employs around 300 people in Poland.
The factory of Woodward Polska in Niepołomice was completed in two stages, each covering around 4,000 m2 of space. The facilities’ construction rests on steel frames made of hot-rolled profiles reinforced in the support zones. The second stage saw the construction of a segment higher than the older building, which resulted in the occurrence of snow drifts. Even though the project allowed for extra loads, the client wanted to test the actual load capacity reserves. Sense Monitoring proposed an economical and autonomic solution without using the client’s local network. We placed an industrial-grade GSM router in the hall, an essential feature for a client in this field of production. There is a big gantry working in one part of the hall, but our proprietary measurement method ensures that its movement does not interfere with the sensors of our system.
