PJL Group recently sent one of their team members to Germany! Chris Plummer, one of PJL Group's drill specialists, travelled to Germany to help Mine Master & GHH ensure the design of their products meets the needs of the Australian hard rock market, before they are released. During this trip, all aspects of the machines were scrutinised, including operating functionality, component layout, hydraulic design, electrical design, maintainability & inherent reliability.
Mine Master and GHH have a large number of trucks, drills and loaders operating throughout the world. At the Mine Master factory, PJL worked closely with the design team to enhance Face Master 2.5 & Face Master 2.8 drill rigs.
"The Mine Master Engineering team were very happy with the input from PJL Group and were left feeling that their product would be much better suited to the Australian market after all these modifications were made." Chris Plummer said.
This visit had a positive outcome for both parties. Some good 'around the table' discussions were had with the GHH management with regards to truck and loader design concepts for Australian underground hard rock mining conditions. It also allowed PJL Group to network with GHH, should we become a service provider to this client in the future.
