Our passion is
Loadquip is the manufacturing arm of CMP Engineers and has been supplying custom specialised equipment to the mining and heavy industry sectors since 1995.
The company emerged in response to clients of CMP Engineers preferring in some instances a turnkey solution rather than a straight design or analysis service. Over time it also became apparent there was a need for a manufacturing company that could design and supply complete vehicle and heavy machinery systems and bring together and integrate the inputs from various specialised suppliers as required.
Loadquip has the capability of designing and building specialised machines and equipment ranging in size from a few kilograms to hundreds of tonnes. Recent projects include the complete design and supply of 115, 300, 385 & 450 tonne Low Loaders, Salt Harvesters, and the design and installation of a new drivetrain for a 24 tonne Locomotive. Other projects include the complete design and supply of sound attenuation packages for mobile equipment, and specialised towing equipment for mining trucks.
Thanks to our wonderful partners at CMX Global Logistics, we’ve recently sent our latest 450-tonne swing wheel low loader down to the Hunter Valley. The low loader was split into three major assemblies and loaded on to several semi-trailers, and will shortly be re-assembled and commissioned. https://youtu.be/nnmgwYFZLLg
Construction of our latest 450t swing wheel low loader has been progressing rapidly, and is ahead of schedule despite the interruptions of Covid-19. This particular machine is destined for the Hunter Valley and will be undergoing commissioning within the next few months. https://youtu.be/gg844iLlkgo
Not all of the equipment designed and built by Loadquip involves large, complex machinery. The magnetic sweeper trailers that we supply to mine sites is an elegantly simple and reliable system for clearing tramp metal from roads, to reduce tyre damage and tyre-related work interruptions. It consists of a tandem-axle trailer supporting a large electromagnet
While searching back through some of our archive records, we came across a series of photos taken of one of our earlier 300 tonne swing-wheel low loaders. The photos date back from approximately 15 years ago – long before GoPro’s and iPhones, so it isn’t 4K hi-def video. Nevertheless the photos stitched together to form
Here is a short time-lapse video showing progress on assembly of our latest 150 ton low loaders here in Brisbane. Our low loaders are fabricated from high-strength steel, welded according to Australian Standards with regular NDT testing to guarantee that the structure is free from defects. Careful attention to sequencing of welds and support of
