Machine design

We help customers to get the most from the mineral processing equipment. To do this we provide design capabilities for specific new machinery including grinding mills, vibrating screens and centrifuges. We also have extensive experience in re-designing and re-engineering existing machines to extend service life and reliability.

Machine design

Whatever the application, we can manage the entire process - from concept development, through detailed design, manufacture and installation, to final commissioning - or help with one aspect. We set out to unlock the ‘win-wins’ where machine and operator productivity increases but so too do machine health and operator safety.

Our in-house capabilities in all design related disciplines include:

  • Mechanical
  • Structural
  • Control systems, PLCs (programmable logic controllers)
  • Electrical
  • Fluid power hydraulics


Structural dynamic fatigue

Elements of ore grinding mills, centrifugal fans, cooling towers

Our experts provide a full range of engineering services to operators and manufacturers of mills, centrifugal fans and cooling towers to help them unlock productivity gains while maintaining high levels of safety and regulatory compliance. From fatigue analysis to design audits and troubleshooting, we help operators and manufacturers to benefit from what we call ‘smart productivity'.

  • Finite element stress analysis of all components
  • Fatigue analysis
  • Re-design assessments
  • Drive train analysis
  • Quality assurance (QA) specifications, fabrication inspections
  • Condition audits, refurbishment and life extension, load increase assessments

Vibrating screens

Our experts provide a full range of design and engineering services to operators and manufacturers of vibrating screens to help them unlock productivity gains while maintaining high levels of safety and complying with regulators. From concept and detailed design to fatigue analysis, design audits and troubleshooting, we support all types of vibrating screen equipment including single, multiple, flat and banana decks.

  • Specifications and design audits
  • Finite element stress analysis
  • Mechanical and structural design
  • Structural dynamics of wash plant structure
  • Fatigue analysis
  • Drive train analysis
  • Condition audits and life extension


As designers of process plant machines, including vertical shaft magnesium centrifuges, horizontal shaft coal centrifuges and pulverisers, we have the expertise to support your mineral processing. Our experienced teams can help you with everything from initial concept to detailed design including mechanical, structural, hydraulic, instrumentation and electrical control, drafting, fabrication surveillance, installation and commissioning.
