Refurbishment of Mining Components
From OEM equipment updates and frame reclaims to guard cover replacement and basic re-welds, Western Metalworx is the go-to fabricator for mining equipment refurbishment.
At Western Metalworx, we extend the longevity and functionality of mining equipment through the use of custom fabricated wear liners, wear teeth and other wear parts.
To avoid compromising equipment exostructure, we use Solidworks software to model all components in real space, then use tools like our CNC plasma cutter to fabricate and install in-house.
We use Hardox™ wear plate abrasion-resistant steel products to create wear components, minimising downtime, extending service life and increasing productivity.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control
We won’t let any anything leave the Western Metalworx warehouse until it meets exceptional quality and safety standards.
In order to support this level of quality, we invest heavily in the skills and development of the Western Metalworx team. Welders and fabricators are coded to relevant Australian standards and tested every six months by external assessors, while continuous training and improvement programs ensure that all team members operate at the top of their game.
The work doesn’t stop upon delivery, either. We strive to provide consistent after-sales support, checking in with clients to see how their products are performing, then fine-tuning the next iteration, building capabilities and cementing relationships within the industry.
