This article provides a summary of the design and operating parameters for the Lifting Crate. Finite element analysis via Autodesk Inventor was used to determine the structural stresses induced by the forces. A 2350 kg load has been nominated for design purposes in order to satisfy a working load limit of 1000 kg through Australian Standard AS4991 Lifting Devices and AS3990 Mechanical Equipment – Steelwork. The standards have been utilized for determining the suitability of the design. The design meets the requirements of the standards for the proposed loads.
