Streamlined vibratory and shock absorption made simple with Mackay plate isolators

Mackay is the largest manufacturer of vibration isolators in Australia with simple, effective solutions for controlling damaging structural vibrations and shock on rock crushing and large hopper feeder applications. 

For rock crusher control cabins, which are typically located at the top of the equipment, the structural vibrations induced by the crushing operation can be significant, and as such, it becomes necessary to isolate the control cabin for the safety and comfort of operators and the protection of equipment. 

The latest Mackay M211 Series Plate Isolator is state-of-the-art passive plate mounted isolation system that has been designed and engineered to protect rock crushing equipment and machinery using passive vibration isolation to contain energy using dampening elements.  

The M211 series of Plate isolators are ideal for isolating from structural vibrations generated by rock crushers or large vibratory hopper feeders. As vibrations are typically predominantly located in the horizontal plane, this design makes it possible to stack one mount upon another to increase lateral isolation. 

By using the same external dimensions and simply changing the rubber hardness and intermediate steel plates with the Mackay M211 series of Plate isolators range of mounts, a crushing application will increase its maximum loading capacity from 1,452kg to 17,700kg. The larger load capacity of the M211 series isolators creates a wide range of potential application solution opportunities. 

As every application can be different, Mackay has a team of specialist product engineers ready to assist with solving any vibration problem. Working in partnership with Motion Australia as a distributor ensures Mackay products are widely accessible through a massive network of supply channels nationwide, giving mining operators security and peace of mind on lead times and shipping costs.  Read more

Low-voltage drive solutions for heavy industry

TECO’s track record for designing award winning electrical and rotating equipment is what makes them uniquely qualified to design and develop products and services for heavy duty industrial operations. 

Mining, excavating, quarrying and heavy earth moving operations are subject to some of the harshest working conditions in the world, with equipment running 24/7 on site to keep up with an ever-increasing demand for raw materials in the world today. 

Whether it’s a semi-autogenous or ball mill, a conveyor or a crusher, the drive lines on these sites need to contend with high ambient temperature, impact loads and voltage transients that could compromise valuable uptime in the case of incidental equipment failure. 

TECO understands the challenges of heavy industry, and as a strategic supplier to Motion Australia, they have proactivity increased ability to deliver best in class products to Australian heavy earth moving, mining, quarrying, and excavating operations. 

Motion Australia’s inventory capabilities, combined with their extensive network of more than 140 branches Australia-wide, means that TECO electrical solutions are readily available to customers— no matter how remote the location.  

Drawing on years of expertise in intelligent electrical-mechanical design, TECO has developed the 510 Low-Voltage Variable Speed Drives specifically to accommodate the needs of heavy industrial applications. 

Each 510 series model variation (F, A, E, and L) has its own unique capabilities to suit the requirements of any application— the result of which is a range of truly “F.A.E.L. safe” Low-Voltage Variable Speed Drives. Read more

Sizing and gaining the most from your mining excavators and haulers


In mining and other extractive industries, it is important to match excavators to your haul trucks to lower your total cost of ownership (TCO). If they are mismatched, you will be inefficient and burn extra fuel. If you can mitigate that, you’ll lower your operating costs over time and start realising higher profits as a result.
