THE BEGINNING OF A BETTER SOLUTION
This project saw the McNeall Plastics and BHP teams work collaboratively over a period of years to develop the optimal custom-made solution BHP needed. A solution that would not only eliminate the issues being experienced by BHP, but that would also deliver substantial value and advantages to BHP over the long-term. READ MORE
HOW DID WE SAVE BHP $4 MILLION?
This case study into a dipper bucket issue exemplifies how critical it is to select the right material for your component. Discover how the correct choice of material, plus the right manufacturing partner, will not only have a positive impact on the rate of productivity and the working environment, but also on the overall profitability of your business.

WHEN THE LOAD IS TOO MUCH FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN AUSTLON®
This project takes a look at how McNeall Plastics helped BHP overcome issues with the load bearing ability of a shaft, which was resulting in wear issues. Here we devised and implemented a custom-made solution that is now used in over 80% of all 4100 & 4100 XPC buckets across Australia. READ MORE

McNeall Plastics helped us overcome a dipper trip system that was requiring maintenance 12 times a month, resulting in downtime of 257 hours over the year. Their custom Austlon® wear liner kit not only reduced downtime & maintenance, but it also made materal handling easier due to its lightweight. And the end result was increased efficiencies which saw us save $3.4 million over the financial year!! Needless to say, we’ve been more than happy with the ongoing results from McNeall Plastics, that we have contonued to work with them since 2009.
McNeall Plastics supplies cast and machined plastic with excellent sliding and UV protection properties. McNeall’s unique ability is to handle large components fully machined to the customer specification within short lead time.
