A recent mine upgrade in Karratha, Western Australia required cyclone rated doors on a new large steel shed for the site. The doors weighing approximately 10,000kg were initially installed for manual operation however due to their weight is required fork lifts to open and close them. That was quickly reviewed.
Leda’s Perth office was commissioned to automate the doors which required our staff designing and engineering a drive system strong enough to open and close these very heavy doors. Leda’s WA team supplied, installed and commissioned the automated system in late 2012. Our Perth office have since received a further order to automate a 12.0mt wide x 14.0mt high warehouse door for the “Yandi central mine”.
