Australian engineering firm, Austin EngineeringTM has won the People’s Choice Award 2019.
The People’s Choice Award was judged by the general public. Voters selected their favourite amongst all four of this year’s Swedish Steel Prize finalists. Austin EngineeringTM has emerged victorious with its revolutionary Two-Piece Mining Excavator Bucket.
Austin received a significant 2,315 votes – of the total votes which totalled around 4,800. Austin EngineeringTM is recognised with this prestigious honour because they have shown proof of good engineering and innovation through the optimised use of steel.
The Two-Piece Mining Excavator Bucket represents a significant leap in innovation for the design, maintenance and safety of excavator buckets. It has a modular design and defined joint configuration between the upper and lower assemblies that allows for quick and efficient change-out during maintenance intervals. This clearly opens up for further bucket design innovations.
