Some jobs are shittier than others......but M&M Autopak have always worked by their mantra ...... "your engineering solution partner". So to climb into a Silo which was fulled with a product known as 'Fly Ash' that had got wet and needed to be dug out....it was the only solution. A special thanks to Nathan Dobbis and Phil Holgate for 4 back breaking days to complete the job. The Customer said you both deserved a beer or three after that job...well done to you both.
M&M Autopak appreciate innovative design so it was a wonderful to meet Toby and Rory Meek based in Hong Kong at the Crank Workx down hill event in Rotaroua New Zealand in May 2017. Their unique bikes turned heads as they competed in the 5 day event."When Innovation and engineering go hand in hand, the results can be every satisfying" explains Steven Meek Design engineer for MeekBoyz.com. Toby and Rory's major sponsor. The boys who have been both world ranked in BMX (Rory No W
When demands on production equipment are to run 3 shifts, its very difficult to carry out any effective maintenance regime. This was the challenge we were asked to solve by a large household cleaning product manufacture. There were two distanced product variations running on the line, A bottle with a trigger applicator and a refill bottle with a cap. Because of the layout of the production line All bottles had to travel through all the application machinery and stages even i
Roll forming machinery are amazing to watch in a production environment. A flat sheet of steel is formed into amazing shapes. This is done be forcing the sheet metal through a series of rollers to form the shapes and angles required. The loads on the rollers are quiet high so to cope with these forces the machinery is strong and heavy. Relocating and re commissioning this equipment takes time, patience and a lot of care.
Of all the equipment and machinery we move, Electrical and control cabinets have got to be the hardest....why... apart from the sensitive nature of the equipment inside that don't like to be knocked around, their size is a real problem.they are generally around 2.4m high making it difficult to lift from the top due to door way heights and obstacle like room lighting, They also can be 3-4 metres long and if picked up with a forklift, can't get through the doors.....Solution..
When you move as much equipment interstate and overseas as we have, you acquire some unique skills (Party Tricks). The boys had a bet with some locals on site that they could pick up a 20 cent coin with a Forklift........See how it is done
Who says size doesn't matter.....when you have big things to lift, bring on the 10 tonne forklift! Thanks Peter Horne from Horne Transport in Melbourne for their help to relocate a biscuit factory from Sydney to Melbourne.
With all the new "West Connect" and North Connect" projects in Sydney at the moment, the demand for concrete is massive. "2 Million cubic metres" was mentioned as a figure for the North connect tunnel alone. Our newest team member Nathan Dobis has been working on a new batch plant installation at Mt Kuring Gai. Not only has he lost some weight walking up and down stairways.....but the customer has been very happy with Nathan's input into the project (or Ned as the boys nick
