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 the structure in a custom assembly jig is required to ensure weld shrinkage doesn’t result in unacceptable distortion of the entire framework.
This fabrication phase will continue over the next few months. There’s not much to see at this early stage, but stay tuned for more videos!
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.
