Turnkey Engineering Redefined: Ibex’s Press Fit System at Automation Mechatronics

Introduction 

Automation Mechatronics Industries is an Australian-owned, multi-disciplinary, turnkey engineering business who has been operating for over 37 years. Primarily working in the food and beverage space, they can turn their skills to any number of industries and applications. Initially founded in Melbourne, Automation Mechatronics now services all areas of Australia as well as a host of overseas projects.

Background

For the project in question, Automation Mechatronics were using labour supply for mechanical installation and, given the pipe work installation was non-sanitary, they required a solution that was cost-effective and did not require highly trained operators to execute quality work.

For sanitary applications, Automation Mechatronics typically use TIG welding for most pipe work, including process water and compressed air. Given this particular project was a non-hygienic application, a faster and more cost-effective solution was sought.

Solution & Results

Automation Mechatronics partnered with Ibex Australia, and having used press-fit systems once previously, were confident that Ibex’s range of 304L stainless steel press fit tube and fittings was a solution that would work for this project. Having local support from Ibex in Sydney, NSW was very helpful for this project – and allowed for quick and open communication and assistance when required.

Automation Mechatronics used Ibex Australia’s Express 304L stainless steel press fit fittings, which are ideal for water and air applications. The benefit of the Express press fit range is that it is easy and fast to install and requires no welding or hot work permits. Express uses quality 304L stainless steel, with up to 40 Bar of pressure and a vast temperature range of -20°C to 200°C.

Testimonial

“Press fit pipe work is much faster than welded tube systems, particularly compared to purge welding. The system is simple to use and produces quality pipe work. Overall, a very cost-effective system”

Courtney McSpadden – Process Engineering Manager – Automation Mechatronics Industries
