November sees the installation of two new 35T overhead cranes in the heavy fabrication bay of Kador's Sherwood workshop, replacing two old 25T cranes. This investment demonstrates Kador's confidence in the future of heavy manufacturing in SE Qld.
With mining equipment getting larger (and heavier) there is an increasing requirement for manufacturers to be able to handle larger fabricated components. The new 70T lifting capacity will better enable us to handle the larger sized pressure vessels, haul truck dump bodies and dragline components that are being used in the mining and process industries.
Typical of these is this large subassembly despatched in late October - the last of nine pieces which make up the rear rotating frame for a new dragline being built in the Bowen Basin, in Central Qld.
