Fusing Lighting Truss with Science and Technology

Truss is commonplace in the event industry, but it sometimes takes a creative mind to uncover applications in other industry sectors such as scientific research. Thereupon, we enjoyed reading about the PhenoMobile® Lite developed at the Australian Plant Phenomics Facility in Canberra.

This rugged buggy uses state-of-the-art technology to screen field crops of varying heights and row widths for traits including crop height, fractional overage and biomass index without causing any plant damage.

The challenge was finding components that could provide height and distance adjustment with minimal weight added to the buggy. Again, components from our Global Truss range provided a simple solution. Tiny F14 Square (100mm x 100mm) Truss and F24 Square (220mm x 220mm) Truss lengths, in addition to standard mounting accessories, provided the exact amount of height and distance adjustment necessary for the PhenoMobile® Lite.

Ultimately, the data and imagery obtained by the PhenoMobile® Lite can assist in determining which plant variety is best suited to the climatic and physical conditions, so it will have a significant role in research, development and use of various crop species.

Leading technology, software and on-site measurement to ensure the perfect fit and maximum protection and minimise your downtime.


In-house CAD/CAM

We use SolidWorks and CAMWorks, industry’s best software in-house. Preparing complete 3D models leaves no unknown aspects before the case is ready to be manufactured. Ply and foam pieces are precision machined for every custom case using CNC router based on the finalised design.

Creative Solutions

Having high-quality equipment and structures shouldn’t compromise the aesthetics and the possibilities you can do with it. Our creative team can customise and tailor our products to you, or even conceptualise your ideas into a reality.

On-site Measuring

Our team of designers are happy to visit you on sit to measure your equipment so you don’t need to move the equipment without protection. A non-disclosure agreement can be signed to keep any sensitive information secure in case the measured equipment is in development stages.


Promote your brand whether you’re on the move, seeing customers or displaying equipment. 



Using our precision CAD/CAM facilities, we are able to brand your cases with your company logo. In addition to branding, engraving can be used for marking the contents of a case.
