TRACEY WALL, Communications Support Officer for Kinder Australia reports on their experienced engineering team. Kinder Australia has been an Associate member since 2002.

The field applications and mechanical engineering staff are technically trained and experienced in all aspects of conveyor and bulk materials handling engineering.
They are fully focused on advancing customers end-to-end handling processes by utilising their broad industry experience and expert engineering knowledge of emerging technologies, with the intention on improving productivity and safety first and foremost.

Their practical knowledge and installation experience have a global reach with extensive customer networks at international, national and local locations. This enables the team to listen and understand customers’ requests and make recommendations with confidence.

Kinder’s engineering department has rapidly grown and upskilled, providing solutions to overcome some of the industry’s most challenging obstacles. Dust, spillage, vibration and noise and have been just some of the issues that the engineers have faced when designing and improving Kinder’s products.

Empowered with the foundations of Engineering Qualifications (Mechanical, Aeronautical, Electrical and Chemical) and proficiency with Conveyor Engineering/Design skills, Kinder Australia’s Engineering Team are specialists when handling complex problems with excellent precision and execution. Kinder’s Engineering team are proficient in the use of
cutting-edge drawing software, 3D printing/prototyping and strategic thinking. Utilising AutoCAD in the production of 2-dimensional layout drawings or SolidWorks in the creation of 3-dimensional modelling, mean their customer base can be confident that Kinder Australia’s team of
Conveyor Mechanical Engineering specialists will provide comprehensive recommendations on correct installation of conveyor components and bulk materials handling accessories and lining materials.

Cameron Portelli – Senior Mechanical Engineer (Specialising in: Mechanical Engineering),
Bradley Owen – Mechanical Engineer (Specialising in: Aeronautical Engineering),
David Zhungu – Design Engineer (Specialising in: Electrical & Electronic Engineering).

Simulation Finite Element Analysis provides the Engineering Team with the tools to more accurately predict and design innovative products/solutions simulating real world scenarios. From there, the team can analyse results and optimise designs for future productivity improvements and gain.

Overall conveyor design and componentry can be checked utilising the Helix conveyor design program, ensuring Kinder Australia’s customers have the correct product application and design duty.

The future is bright at Kinder Australia with a knowledgeable team of engineers and conveyor specialists. When it comes to idlers and pulleys, they can advise equipment selection and dimension calculations. Idler bearing life and shaft deflection can be determined, as well as size requirements of pulleys and drives in order to minimise capital and spares
holding costs. When it comes to troubleshooting conveyor design related issues, Kinder can be your first call for problem-solving and productivity improvement.
