Design, Analysis & Drafting


Russell Mineral Equipment Pty Ltd

Russell Mineral Equipment (RME) is a specialist mining equipment designer with its manufacturing plant based in Toowoomba, Queensland. RME has successfully grown a strong reputation around the world as a designer of equipment which delivers effective solutions to everyday processing problems. The primary focus of the engineering team is to develop equipment used by mine operators to reduce mill downtime in the process of replacing wear parts within the grinding mill areas of the concentrator.

MRM Baseframe Design

Mill Reline Machines (MRM’s) operate inside large grinding mills to replace the worn liners essential for the productivity of the concentrator plant. RME often refers to the MRM as their ‘flagship product’, and Solidtech Engineering is proud to play a significant role in their continued success and development.

Since late 2004 we have provided the engineering resources, and lately the drafting resources also, for the baseframe structure of the MRM’s. With each machine requiring significant design effort, we have worked with RME over that period to ensure consistent quality and efficiency of the design. We are pleased to provide the skills and resources which take the baseframes from concept to FE analysis to detailed drawing stage.
