Quarrying & Mining

Palmers Mechanical can design, fabricate, and construct bulk handling systems for a wide range of materials.

Palmers Mechanical is a leader in the manufacture of materials handling and process equipment for the mining industry both here in New Zealand and overseas.

Palmers Mechanical has over 30 years’ experience in the provision of materials handling solutions, supported by design, manufacture, installation and commissioning.

With over 120 years combined experience in everything from gold to coal, woodchip to cement. Our design and workshop capability includes stackers and reclaimers, stockyards and wharf conveyors, as well as conventional conveyor systems.

Our wealth of experience in servicing the mining and quarrying sector throughout the South Island of New Zealand means that our designs are tempered with practical know how. This allows us to avoid many of the costly pitfalls that can dodge even simple bulk handling project execution.

With the rapid advances that have been made in conveyor technology in recent years, construction specialists must stay ahead of layout, fabrication and construction techniques for these hard-working systems.

We have the knowledge and ability to work with design teams to ensure both operational optimisation and efficient construction. Our extensive experience in design, as well as detailing, fabrication, construction and commissioning of conveyor systems, covers the full range of materials.

An integral part of any bulk materials handling system is its bins and hoppers.

Palmers Mechanical’s heavy lift capacity in both our workshops allows us to manufacture and erect large specification plate work fabrications, that are beyond the capabilities of many fabricators and contractors. More and more clients are using our services to reduce not only costly construction difficulties but also long-term peace of mind.
