Austin is a leading designer and manufacturer, we are the “go to” solution provider for customised mining equipment, including the reputable JEC® and WESTECH® brands.
Our expertise in dump truck bodies, excavator buckets, rope shovels and water tanks is widely regarded. We also produce a range of auxiliary products and other specialised attachments for mining equipment.
When we talk about ‘design matters’ we’re talking about ensuring that our custom-engineered accessories for mining trucks are designed to meet the challenging needs of the mining industry, from mining truck dump bodies to buckets.
It’s why Austin manufacturing sites and partners around the globe have such a strong focus on research and innovation in the creation of custom parts for mining machines.
Breakdowns and equipment failures of a piece of critical equipment in open pit mining or underground mining that causes disruption to the extraction process can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars each hour it’s out of service. When your processing line is fine-tuned for efficiency, then a disruption can be costly.
That is why you need peace of mind with custom equipment designed and engineered by a company that does all the worry for you; before it becomes a real issue at a mine site.
At Austin, we understand you want custom mining equipment because it is a critical piece of equipment for a mine’s efficiency. So we research, design, test and retest to make sure that your new piece of equipment is not only durable but also functional.
The last two of our six company values are our commitment to quality research and innovation.
Our international operations help to drive our innovation because there is no challenge that our worldwide knowledge pool hasn’t had to find a solution.
We have had hundreds of challenges that we have met through creative, yet evidence-based, innovation. It’s why Austin mining machines are used in some of the most remote and inhospitable mining sites around the world, where quality products that do the job are needed every time.
The durability and functionality of our customised mining equipment are all part of our advanced manufacturing processes and techniques that use evidence-based design. We use data from the field and modeling in our design work, so you get years of experience and fieldwork knowledge as our foundation for innovation. Ultimately, advanced manufacturing and design help to build efficiency in the repetitive process of mining and moving heavy loads.
The processes of load management of outputs of mining machines are almost scientific, so modeling is a great tool for developing more efficiencies with customisation. For example, using usage data and modeling we designed the HP Series of high-performance buckets. Through evidence-based design, we were able to reduce the weight of the bucket by 15% while strengthening vulnerable points, which gives the operator comfort and peace of mind in moving greater ore loads. The modeling means we can build buckets and other custom equipment for mining trucks to maximise the productivity of specific mining operations.
Delays in the workshop lead to delays in your mining operation. At Austin, we work to a standard that ensures we deliver what the customer needs in the timeframe expected. We are so committed to customer service that service is core to four of our six company values.
At Austin these values are our commitment to safety, integrity to all stakeholders, accountability, and teamwork.
Whether you are involved in underground mining, open pit mining, surface mining or strip mining, we have a team of professionals dedicated to ensuring the best outcome for our clients.
That goes for all our global partners, so if you have an issue in your operation, then we can reach out to our global partners in the mining industry to find a solution.
Our workshops in Australia, South East Asia, North America and South America are fitted out with state-of-the-art production line tools. This not only gives us the ability for precise customisation of mining equipment but also gives us the flexibility of pushing the design and capabilities of mining equipment through new technology.
There is not a mining site anywhere in the world that is the same as any other. Underground mining techniques are very different to something like surface mining, and they need mining machines that are fit for their purpose.
And the mining technique is only the start. There are so many variables to extraction that every mine faces unique challenges and opportunities given the right support. Whether you need a truck body for your mining operations to remove surface material or within confined spaces, Austin can help to deliver a custom-engineered part to do the job.
