In an industry where a minor delay can cost millions, you can sleep soundly knowing Geographe’s vertically integrated manufacturing base is designed to deliver industry-leading manufacture times.
Geographe’s manufacturing facility specialises in the production of components for fixed and mobile plant. Our Bunbury workshop has developed over many years to become a highly automated production-focused facility.
The use of Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGV’s) and FANUC Robots allows for autonomous operation in our advanced manufacturing machining centres. This ensures consistency in both delivery and quality.
Our machining capabilities and experience extend over manual and CNC machining with Lathes and Mills, Gear Cutting and Grinding, EDM Wire Cutting, and Cylindrical Grinding.
Geographe engineers have years of experience designing new products and reverse engineering components to improve performance. Today these are created using programmes such as Solidworks 3D CAD and Solidworks Composer.
Our workshop offers sand moulding and centrifugal casting, with up to 250kg induction melting capacity, allowing us to cast ferrous and non-ferrous alloys.
Cutting and Grinding
There’s nothing we haven’t cut our teeth on; worm and wheel drives, double helicals, helical & spur gears and racks & gear segments. More information on our gear manufacturing capabilities can be found here.
Our Bunbury manufacturing plant has extensive heat treatment facilities, making use of five fluid bed furnaces. The facility can offer Gas Carburizing, Nitro Carburizing, Quench and Tempering, Normalizing and Stress Relieving.
Geographe has expanded its heat treatment facility to include a twin-lane Ipsen Continuous Furnace which will allow for increased capacity and even faster turnaround. The furnace is the largest of its type in the southern hemisphere allowing for unrivalled throughput.
We offer a range of standard industrial treatments, and specialise in precision Chrome Plating, Phosphate Coating and Two Pack spray painting.
