Using innovative design, product investigations, and in-depth analysis, Geographe provides custom solutions to clients on demand.

A one-third time reduction for a routine maintenance task.

The Problem
Wheel nut seizures during truck fleet servicing due to severe salty conditions.

The Solution
A Custom Industrial Nut Splitter to remove the need for thermal cutting and eliminate site hot work permits.

The Tricky Bit
Unique design specifications included in the solution were:

  1. Tool should operate in a vertical position
  2. Tool should be narrow enough to fit into the truck wheel hub
  3. Tool could not weigh more than 23kg for mine site safety reasons

After 3D modeling a new scissor-style design, and conducting a finite element analysis (FEA) assessment,  the production version of Geographe’s nut splitter proved very successful in reducing the client’s truck fleet downtime. 

Wheel and wheel nut removals were brought down from 36 hours to an average 4 – 6 hours whilst eliminating any requirement for hot work permits and creating a safer working environment.
