Aussie lapping Hydraulink

Not only has Aussie Lapping Services opened the newest Hydraulink franchise in Far North Queensland but it is also offering service products with MDG-41 (Mechanical Design Guideline 41) outlines for safe working practices.

The applications of their skills are targeted for the manufacture and assembly of high-pressure hoses and fittings, including hazard identification, assessment, elimination and reviewing of risk.

New owners Charlie Goodwin and Brad Hutchins, with the setting up of an outlet in Rockhampton, are joining a network of more than 400 service points spanning Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

“We really like the products, and believe they’re far better than the competition,” says Charlie Goodwin.

Aussie Lapping Services offers hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical service and repairs for clients in Central Queensland and beyond. The company is known for its track record in problem-solving, and willingness to create tailor-made solutions, including mechanical lapping, to match customer specifications.

“Hydraulink offers great service and turnaround times on orders. Working with a national network, it really makes it easy when servicing clients,” said Mr Goodwin. 

Mr Hutchins and Mr Goodwin will focus on local industries, such as drilling, construction, mining and agriculture, ensuring conformity with industry safety and compliance standards across individual and multiple sites.

Their joint qualifications are in Certificate IV in Fluid Power, Certificate III in Fitting and Turning and Certificate III in Small Motors, including experience with the construction phase of the Ichthys onshore LNG project in Darwin, underground mining and BHP’s Mining Area C in the Pilbara.

Hydraulink has particular experience with MDG-41 matched systems, and because they are made in New Zealand, it has a strong focus on quality and reliability.

Hydraulink National Franchise Manager, Wayne Abbott, believes Brad and Charlie’s knowledge and experience makes them an asset for both the Hydraulink network, and for local industry in the Rockhampton area, and across Central Queensland.

“Charlie and Brad have strong analytical skills. They are good at diagnosing problems and working out optimum solutions for clients who need hydraulic assistance.” he said.

Aussie Lapping Services is equipped with hydraulic flow turbines up to 750L/min, a 36-inch lapping machine, and ultrasonic and spray washing cleaners. To reduce downtime, they offer in-house repair or replacement options for pumps, motors, valves, cylinders, hoses and fittings.
