The rescuer

When one of WA’s leading mining companies approached MMT to find a way of integrating its underground mining apparatus with its seat design, our team jumped at the challenge.

We developed a piece of equipment that protects the operator’s breathing apparatus, whilst maximising safety and comfort.This latest version is based on an ISRI® model which combines a 24 volt electric air seat, a driver weight rating up to 150kg, and a dual air lumber.

The model conforms with ISO 7096:2000.

Protective cylinder ram covers

The MMT team has developed a range of protective ram covers which reduce wear on hard chroming and seals, and protect machinery from flying rocks, salt, chemicals and dust.

Made from a range of materials including PVC, Nylon and Kevlar®, the feedback received from our mining clients has been extremely positive, with reduced down-time and extended wear life reported on cylinders and other components, in addition to increased productivity.

One of our valued customers has reported ‘tripling the life’ of their rams and in the process saving labour time, increasing the machine’s working hours, and reducing replacement times.
