Heavy Machinery or Heavy Mobile Equipment (HME) refers to the large, powerful equipment used to extract and transport minerals, ores, and other valuable materials from the earth. These machines are designed to handle large volumes of material and perform heavy-duty tasks, such as drilling, excavating, crushing, hauling, and more.

The heavy machinery on a mine site are considered critical assets because of their role in the 24/7 production process.


On-Site HME Inspection

On-Site Heavy Machinery Inspection

Our team of experienced and certified inspectors specialises in providing comprehensive inspections for all types of heavy machinery, including excavators, bulldozers, cranes, and more. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to ensure that machinery is thoroughly inspected and evaluated for any potential issues. We understand the importance of safety and reliability in heavy machinery operations. That’s why we take our inspections seriously and leave no stone unturned when it comes to identifying any potential hazards or problems with your equipment.

Workshop Heavy Machinery Inspection

If your business is responsible for the overhaul of heavy machinery components, the inspection for stress-induced cracking is of the utmost importance to ensure when that item is put back into service, it will perform like new. 

Our HME specialists have spent 1000’s of hours inspecting these assets and maintain very high standards in ensuring they identify all defects when it is on the shop floor. If a defect is missed at this stage it can result in premature failure when put back into service and the repair costs will be exponentially higher.

Ball Studs

Heavy earth moving machinery such as CAT® Mining Trucks contain ball studs that may require ultrasonic testing every 1000 hours to determine whether they are cracked or not. This testing is prescribed by the manufacturer in the equipment service bulletins to prevent in-service failure which could result in a loss of steering control.

Testing reduces unplanned downtime and haul road/pit breakdown repairs. Prior experience has shown that a strong emphasis should be placed on performing the inspection as scheduled. ARI has developed the technique using custom components to reduce the inspection time from 45 mins to 15 mins per truck.

This inspection is critical to the reliability of these vehicles and should only be performed by experienced and certified professionals.
