In The Factory 18th July
Last week, the factory floor was taken up with a large Air Traffic training simulator, some 7 metres wide and 2.6 metres in height. The simulator has been designed and built using the Kanya aluminium build system to form the framework, and has been fully assembled in the factory.
This is not the first 360 degree simulator rig that Thinking Space has designed and manufactured, but this particular design differs in that images are displayed on flat screen monitors, as opposed to projecting the images onto a projector screen. High quality, acoustic black wool serge has been sourced for the areas surrounding the screens, with its sound absorbent capability and black-out features perfect for the structures use as a training facility.
Fitting the fabric to the Kanya aluminium sub frame is easy, thanks to a choice of two different methods used. For further details, watch our YouTube video.
The decagon-shaped framework licences room for ten flat screen monitors to be mounted, with the heavyweight Kanya profiles offering stability whilst fine adjustment allows the operators to realign the screens as required.
The simulator forms part of a larger project to provide the training facilities at a location in South America. The project also includes the manufacture of four single operator tower consoles and three two-position approach consoles, complete with Novus monitor mounts. These consoles have already been freighted to their final destination, with the integrator partner responsible for completing the installation. The simulator rig will follow on shortly.
This project is a great illustration of how the range of products provided by Thinking Space can integrate to provide complete customised solutions, whatever your particular needs.
