API Engineering has been supplying a wide range of Material Handling Equipment and components to the Mining, Steel and Heavy Engineering industries for over a decade.
Our expertise and experience allows us to supply a wide range of components for different industrial sectors and applications including:
We supply components for rail-based haulage and mining vehicles, including locomotives and wagons.
For demanding processing facilities, such as those for cement or minerals, we supply large shaft forgings and wear components. We understand the importance of uptime and reduced operating costs in projects such as these and our Quality Assurance and Quality Control systems reflect this.
The components we supply are typically manufactured by fabrication, forging or casting, followed by machining and heat treatment as required.
We work with our customers design teams to find a production method, which offers the best value. Where appropriate we can offer design changes which will improve the manufactured value of your product.
In addition to individual components, we also offer assembly and testing. Typical assembled components include Wheel and Axle sets, Couplers and Gearboxes. Testing we offer includes Dye Penetrant, Ultrasonic and Hydrostatic Testing. For rotating components, we can carry out dynamic balancing to reduce vibration and noise in the finished equipment.
We can supply Spares and wear parts for existing installed equipment even when the OEM has ceased to support the products. If details drawings are no longer available API is able to offer a complete reverse engineering process.
Our sister company PPI Engineering also offers full design, supply, commissioning and maintenance services for large motors and generators (30kW to 100MW). These are the prime movers which keep material handling and processing facilities running.
