Industry heavyweight

When it comes to plate rolling, the answer is FES

Fabrication Equipment Supplies (FES) is a market leader in the highly competitive Australian plate rolling industry.

In fact, FES has driven this highly competitive sector for the past five years with a special focus on customer service.

The company specializes in steel fabrication – everything from cutting, bonding to forming and rolling.

FES supplies press brakes, guillotines, laser and plasma profile cutters as well as plate rolling machines, band saws and punch and shears.

Established in 1997, FES has been the exclusive Australian agent for high quality DAVI products for more than seven years.

A world leader, DAVI machine systems have become synonymous with high precision, exceptional productivity, efficiency and longlasting value.

Their impressive client base includes aerospace giants NASA and AIRBUS.

In Australia, FES has supplied many of Australia’s leading companies with the latest DAVI technology.

This includes Rheem Australia, which now has the new DAVI MCA 2517 “Intelligent Plant” Full Hydraulic Plate Rolls System.

This CNC controlled Automatic Rolling Line Cell is designed to roll continuous high production of stainless steel tanks for the famous brand Rheem hot water systems.

The fully synchronized production process is run by one operator who simply presses a Start button, which instigates the gantry loader to pick up a plate, feeding it onto the infeed conveyor that feeds into the plate rolling machine.

The fed plate is then rolled in one pass and on completion is then automatically ejected onto an outfeed table to be passed on to a seam welder.

Also, leading wind tower manufacturers Haywoods in Tas and RPG in SA and Qld have recently invested in the DAVI MCB 3060 wind tower lines.

This system is controlled by DAVI “Genius” CNC control system, providing the most efficient, cost effective solution for general plate rolling.

With this system, wind tower cones can be rolled in 10-20 min instead of two hours for a normal system.

DAVI holds more than 80 per cent of the world’s wind tower market due to their leading edge technology.

“Our aim is to increase control, efficiency and productivity – resulting in better profits,” says FES managing director Mike Dye.

“FES has direct links to the most sophisticated products to the most basic machines, covering all price ranges.”
