Transformers  As a winder of electric motors, some products  offer synergies such as transformers. Fyfe  Wilson has a department for the manufacture of  transformers either from designs we already hold  or bespoke designs. Electromagnets  Another product containing coils which we  manufacture. These tend to be built to customer  specifications but is an area where all  departments work together to create the final  product. Prototypes  Fyfe Wilson has used the combined knowledge  and craftsmanship to produce several prototypes  for machines to perform a variety of functions.  With the combination of mechanical and  electrical engineers working together it is  possible to create a bespoke solution to a  problem. We recently refurbished a rolling  machine that was made as a prototype many  years ago that is still in operation. Reverse Engineering  In several of our repairs, due to obsolete  components, we have reverse engineered a  replacement unit and can offer this service when  something needs to be repaired but parts are not  available. 
Case Study  Fyfe Wilson were asked by a client to develop a  product that overcame a problem with opening  fire shutter doors in a hospital. When the fire  shutter doors on the laundry chutes were  activated, they needed to be reset manually  from a ladder. This was deemed to be an unsafe  practice as the shutter doors were at a great  height.  Fyfe Wilson designed a device to automate the  resetting of the fire shutter door. This was  achieved by building an actuator into a frame  which fitted around the ducting. A control panel  was designed to operate the system from the  ground. The whole unit needed to be supported  only by the ductwork. Following the design, a prototype was  developed and demonstrated to the client. This  led to the unit being manufactured and installed  on all fire shutter doors in the client’s building.   This project utilised the skills and resources  across Fyfe Wilson with electricians, mechanical engineers and fabricators working together to  develop the final product.  The final product can be adapted to any duct  work or waste chutes that have a fire shutter  door.
