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. READ MORE

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
