Austral Technologies is a specialized surface engineering company that has developed a number of unique processes to assist the Mining, Mineral Processing and Power Generation Industries to combat abrasive, corrosive and erosive wear on hardwearing components.
Austral Technologies is one of the leading users of high carbon, high chrome and complex carbide flux cored open arc welding wire in the Southern Hemisphere. Austral Technologies has perfected a unique process, “bulk wearfacing”, which can substantially reduce costs associated with equipment replacement and downtime. Austral Technologies has used this methodology to continuously rebuild large components both in the Mining and Power Generation Industries assisting in major companies saving hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.
Austral Technologies was established in 1993 and the personnel were the pathfinders for most of this technology in Australia. The result has been that industry has benefited significantly from the research and development carried out over the ensuing years.
