Process of Improvement - How we do Business

We differentiate ourselves by offering a
continuous and holistic wear solution
known as our ‘Process of Improvement’.

This process ensures wear solutions are continually improved as new wear technologies are researched and developed.
Through this process, WEARX is able to meet the ever changing needs and demands placed on mining operations.

Our Process

AUDIT

Our experienced personnel audit site conditions to understand the wear issues experienced and where improvement can be achieved.

Data is collected including equipment design, wear materials used, wear rates, maintenance schedules and processing information.

REVIEW

The data collected during the site audit is reviewed by WEARX’s design and engineering, technology and innovation, and improvement teams to develop solutions that will achieve site needs.

DEVELOP

Through consultation with site, a solution is developed that will maximise plant availability, minimise downtime, improve safety & deliver measurable cost savings.

This is achieved through WEARX’s design and engineering, manufacturing and site services capabilities.

IMPLEMENT

The solution is then implemented on site by WEARX’s engineers, site services team and improvement team.

MONITOR

WEARX monitor the solution through site visits and frequent consultation with site staff. Wear rates, availability and site feedback is monitored and measured over a set period of time to ensure the solution delivers on the planned results.

IMPROVE

Using the data collected through monitoring, WEARX can repeat the POI process to make further improvements and achieve greater results.

Safety

At the core of all our solutions is improving safety on mine sites by minimising personnel to risk.

This is achieved by

  • Increasing availability by minimising the hours of maintenance required
  • Removing or reducing exposure to confined spaces
  • Minimising manual handling
  • Ease of wear part removal and replacement

Some examples of our safety improving solutions include

Wet & Dry Plant Solutions

Unlike other mining services companies, WEARX has the capability to service the whole mining operations
from crushing to refining, and from Wet Plant to Dry Plant.
