Safeguarding people through innovative design

Improving health and safety is important to us and our client O'Brien Group. This automated machine does the heavy lifting efficiently and safely, reducing the risk of injury to the machine operators.

An Idea to Resolve a Need

O’Briens came to us with a need, the idea was for a machine to lift and turn MDF boards in their factory. The large board size range and restricted space limited the available options.

Planning for Installation

After design approval, we built the entire machine and installed it over the Christmas shutdown to minimise disruption.
