Manufacturing services

Below is a List of manufacturing Equipment recently serviced by Mobile Hose Fixers and Hydraulics

Hydraulic Brake Presses and Benders 

A press brake, also known as a brake press, is a machine tool used for bending steel and other non ferrous metal sheet and plate material.  Brake presses are most commonly used for bending sheet metal.  The Press Brake forms the required bend by clamping the material or work piece between a matching punch and die. Quite complex and attractive three dimensional shapes can be created using these machines. 

Hydraulic Punch

Hydraulic punch presses, is a type of machine press used to cut holes in material.  It can be small and manually operated and hold one simple die set, or be large, and computer controlled, with a multi-station turret holding  much larger and complex die sets.

Hydraulic punch presses use high pressure oil to actuate a large cylinder rather than a flywheel.  They are either valve controlled or valve with limit switch and or pressure switch control.  Limit switch systems allow the ram to be controlled to within fixed points as commanded.  This allows greater control over the stroke of the ram, and increases punching rates as the ram no longer has to complete a full stroke up and down but can operate within a very short stroke length.

Materials Handling Equipment

Material handling equipment is equipment that is used in the movement, storage, control and protection of materials, goods and products throughout the process of manufacturing, distribution, consumption and disposal.

Material handling equipment is either mechanically or hydraulically operated and is generally separated into four main categories: Storage and Handling equipment, Engineered Systems, Industrial trucks, and Bulk handling.

Examples of hydraulic Materials handling equipment and systems we have serviced include.

Forklifts, Elevated Work Platforms, Cranes, Bulk Conveyors, All Terrain 3 Wheel Fork lifts. 

High Pressure Water Blasting, Cleaning  Machinery

High-pressure cleaning or water blasting, uses water pumped to high pressures and then ejected out of specially formed nozzles at at high speeds and sometimes at high temperatures. The velocity and temperature is used to clean surfaces of most loose materials as well as paint and adhesives.  By focusing the pressurised water stream, the forces generated can be quite aggressive, even stone sand and rubber from highways and runways, sealants and membranes from concrete and chewing gum from footpaths.

We have also assisted in the design supply and installation of high pressure electric and gasoline pumps, stainless steel piping and distribution systems for food manufacturing as well as the cleaning of marine vessels, Plumbing, Drain Cleaning and Clearing, Pipe relining and Building industries.

Roll Forming

Roll forming, also spelled roll-forming, is a continuous bending operation in which a long strip of sheet metal usually in the form of coiled galvanized steel is passed through sets of rolls mounted on consecutive frames or stands, each set performing only an incremental part of the bend, until the desired cross-section profile is obtained. Roll forming is ideal for producing constant profile parts in long lengths and in medium to high quantities.  Mobile Hose Fixers and Hydraulics have supplied Hydraulic Components,  motors, hoses and custom cylinders for this specialised field.

Mandrel Tube and Pipe Bending

Tube bending is the processes used to permanently form pipes or tubes such as those used in Automotive exhaust assemblies or in the manufacture of railings or architectural structures.  Round pipe or tube  is usually used in bending.  However, square and rectangular tubes and pipes may also be bent to meet job specifications.  Other factors that need to be taken into consideration before bending tube or pipe is the material of construction and wall thickness.  Mobile Hose Fixers and Hydraulics can provide support for choosing Lubricants, Hydraulic oils and Fluid transfer hoses for these tough applications. 

Brewery, Food Processing and Filling 

The process required for the manufacture of food products for the Australian consumer are some of the most stringent in the world. 

Chemically resistant, inert and non toxic materials must be used in all areas where the is contact with food. 

At the same time, Food acids, fats, sugars and salts  are also some of the most aggressive and or abrasive chemicals around.  Therefore careful selection of the correct materials is essential for durability and safety.

Hydraulics is predominantly used in Mixing systems, Filling systems, and Liquid pressure Injection systems.

Concrete Cutting

concrete saw also known as a con-saw or road saw) is a usually a fuel powered tool for cutting through concrete, bricks, tile, asphalt or any other solid material.  It can be a small and hand held unit or a larger walk behind motorized saw.  Usually the hand held units are powered by a remote hydraulic power pack.  This makes the saws particularly powerful and yet quite compact.  The saw blades used on concrete saws are often composite diamond Blades

Thin Abrasive wheels can also be used on cut-off saws to cut stone and steel. The friction generated in cutting hard substances like concrete usually requires the blades to be cooled to prolong their life and reduce dust.

 

Concrete, Stone and Composites

Grinding and Polishing

Specialised surface finishes for benches, platforms and showroom floors can now be cast in pourable composite materials that harden in only a few hours.  These are gaining popularity as just about any colour and pattern can be poured and cast into shapes such as custom shaped benchtops and then ground and polished to a particularly spectacular and attractive finish. 

Concrete grinders come in many configurations, the most common being a hand-held angle grinder but it may be a specialized tool designed for floors manufactured  from marble, granite or composite  concrete.  Three, 6,  eight and 12 head planetary grinders are also available to speed up the grinding and polishing process of large areas such as in Automotive showrooms, Hotels and Shopping Centers.

Mobile Hose Fixers and Hydraulics Mechanical Workshop has stripped and overhauled various models of heavy duty Grinder.

Injection Moulding (Plastic and Materials)

Injection moulding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting material into a mould.  Injection moulding can be performed with a host of materials, including metals, glass, elastomers, plastics, confections, polymers.  Material for the part is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a mould cavity by a specially machined hardened steel screw, where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity.

 Aluminium and iron casting / Foundries

We have supplied high pressure magnetic (induction) resistant hoses to foundries that produce iron and aluminium metal castings.  Metals are cast into shapes by melting them into a liquid, pouring the metal in a mold, and removing the mold material or casting after the metal has solidified as it cools.

Post forming  pressure and vacuum processes

Mobile Hose Fixers and Hydraulics have made repairs and supplied  various  transfer equipment used in post forming and vacuum forming processes.  This includes the lamination of composite materials and the injection of specialty adhesives.
