Over 15,000kms travelling, 8 months work, 11 workers

"At the moment we are working in country SA building a crushing plant for a quarry. Three of our workers are graciously missing out on home-cooked meals and living out of home for a few more weeks. Can’t say any complaints have come our way about missing home, just heard the local pub has some decent beer and schnitty specials at the moment."

This job is to design, engineer, manufacture and install a secondary crushing plant. Designed with our client, the project is to integrate existing components such as a second-hand screen and the primary crushing plant. This plant has been designed in-house with the structure and chutes integrating into the quarry’s existing primary plant. With complex engineering and installation processes, this is an 8-month job, involving a multidisciplinary team of 4 engineers, 1 draftsman, 5 boilermakers and 1 project manager. 




All the way from Sweden for Heatlie BBQs

After a trip to Sweden, the Heatlie crew finalised the decision to bring back a 10T robotic press to their factory in South Australia. Unfortunately, we couldn't take it in carry on, as it was just a little more baggage than the 23kg allowed on the plane. The shipment arrived in February with the Kepno guys waiting eagerly. Needing a crane for unloading and then specific boundaries to be assembled in, this was a perfect job for Kepno.


The press came in a shipping container and was then unpacked, and craned into the factory through a roller door then positioned as specified. It was then levelled and bolted down ready for our engineer to set up the programs. It automatically folds sheet metal and includes fencing and interlocks to stop the machine if the gates are opened. Al in a morning's work for Kepno.
