About Us

Christo van der Walt - CEO Engineering DynamicsChristo van der Walt

(M.Eng (Mech), Pr Eng).
"I founded Engineering Dynamics more than 25 years ago to provide industry with the means to prevent costly and disruptive machine failure. Originally only in southern Africa, but now across the continent of Africa. My team and I are solution focused. We configure equipment to address the critical parameters for protecting the high value assets of our clients. We have consulted and sold systems to major African companies across a variety of industries. A partial client list include companies from power generation, petrochemical, steel manufacturing, process, mining and other industries. I travel widely and enjoy recognition as an industry expert in the US and Europe. You may find my views on trends in the industry and a discussion of new products in regular posts in my blog on the Engineering Dynamics website.

Are these your needs?

Our clients and customers need fit-for-purpose, user-friendly and robust Vibration Monitoring, Laser Alignment, Thermography and Oil Analysis equipment to prevent expensive and disruptive machine failure.

Our Focus:

  • Laser Alignment and Measurement systems.
  • Portable Vibration Monitoring and Balancing Equipment.
  • Vibration Sensors. 4-20mA Vibration Transmitters and Hardware.
  • Infrared Thermography Systems
  • Onsite Oil Analysis Kit.
  • Motor Circuit Analysis.
  • Laser Alignment, Balancing and Vibration Training.

How do we do it?

  1. I scan the global technology landscape continuously according to a clear and precise set of requirements:
    • User-friendly – to diminish expensive time spent on training, instead of actually using the equipment.
    • Fit for purpose – so that my clients and customers don’t pay for features they don’t need, but get all the information they do need.
    • The perfect trade off between sophistication and robustness – so that you get the critical information but with equipment that can withstand the challenges of the environments in which they are applied.
  2. I assess and evaluate the technologies against the background of my in-depth engineering expertise as well as experience.
  3. We procure these systems, supply and support them to clients and customers across the African content.
