Contest Brief

The required job consists of the design of a series of washing platforms and accessories.

Refer the attached pics for ideal result.


The system shall be composed by the lower number of parts is possible.
Platform series (wash racks) shall be designed as follow

a) one wash rack module with ideal dimensions 5700x1700mm for heavy application (max load 6000 kg on 500x250mm; truck wheels)
b) one wash rack module with ideal dimensions 2700x1200mm for medium applications (max load 1500 kg on 200x200mm; Van wheels)
c) one wash rack module with ideal dimensions 1700x 700mm for light applications (max load 400 kg on 120x120mm; car wheels and miscellaneous loads)
d) a set of side panels 1.5mt height, able to be installed on each kind of module
e) accessing ramps able to be used for any kind of module

Each module type shall be able to be connected to other - as Lego - similar modules in order to create a washing platform (rectangular) of different sizes

The modules, linked together as per customer preference, will be used to recycle the wast water produced by washing operations.
Consequently, opportune hydraulic connections have to be considered and included in order to let customer extracts the waste waters and clean / dispose them
According to the engineering preferences of the Freelancers, the extraction point can be included into the platform or, at the opposite, collected into an external chamber where will be possible to insert a dredge pump.

Mandatory targets are:
platforms have to be made in the cheaper possible manner. This means that waste materials have to be reduced to the minimum.
Where possible, use zinc coated plates in order to limit the painting as much as possible
the assembly operations have to be easy
no leakages have to be ensured



The modules can be designed with slope “plate top” (as in pict Ex1 and Ex2) or with tank and grids (as in ExB and ExC) according to the preferences of the designer.

Required job is the production of the following files for each solution:

preliminary PDF 3D for pre evaluation
3D construction drawings (file Solid Edge ST7)
2D dwg construction drawings

Optionally, and with separate Fee, the production of shop manual may be required. Compensation will be defined together


Easy and clean design, easy production process, materials economy will be high evaluated into the scoring of each project.

    Good morning, Please send me technical details as understructure (chassis), maximum admitted load, material you considered, etc. Your design sounds good but the construction logic is the most important and it is necessary to assign the project. Thank you

    Your idea is absolutely positive but you have also to consider the standard dimensions of the materials. Generally, plates are available in size 1000x2000, 1500x3000, 2000x6000. Please feel free to follow your way and propose me your project.

    Good morning Frederik,

    I would design pads with a format of 3:2. This way you could place the pads either horizontal or verticaly (like europalette). Would this be ok for you? Another charming gain is, that you will raise the quantity of same parts witch will lower the cost of manufacturing. For example, if a take the smalest rack, the panels should be 1050mmx700mm. Also this would ensure the panels could be transported on europallets witch are 1200x800.

    Let me know what you think about it
