Materials Handling

Precision engineering solutions for efficient movement of bulk materials.

Materials handling is about the movement of materials, often in bulk, in an efficient manner within a process or system. With years of precision engineering experience in this area, Arex are able to deliver conveyors, balers, feeders and materials handling components that can stand the test of time and deliver years of reliable service.

All our designs comply with Australian standards. Considerations such as safety guarding, ergonomics, maintenance access , performance , asset value and running costs are all important elements of our materials handling designs. Arex has a wide range of proprietary designs to suit most applications.

Precision Engineering Capabilities for Materials Handling

A long history of working with conveyors, balers, feeders and materials handling components means Arex can design and manufacture new precision components or modify existing ones to improve your efficiency and reduce down-time when moving bulk materials.

Thanks to our extensive workshop, we are able to supply an end-to-end service for our materials handling customers including in-house design, welding and fabrication, assembly and painting, CNC milling, CNC turning, non destructive testing, fitting and specialist toolmaking.

An overriding consideration when selecting materials for manufacture is durability and service life. This means we deliver equipment and materials handling solutions that will long outlast the warranty period.
