EDMO Equipment

EDMO the pioneer of OTR tyre changing, commenced operation in 1970 with the invention of the EDMO TYRE PRESS and hydraulic JACKS. It was apparent at the time that there was a need for a safe and quick way to change the gigantic tyres on the off the road mine vehicles, and how to lift these massive machines for maintenance work.

The team at EDMO have developed parts for heavy lifting equipment which requiring laser cutting and fabrication. Through collaboration in design both companies now have a streamlined manufacturing operation. Barrys Laser Cutting laser cuts the 2mm Mild Steel patterns and forwards these to the tradesmen at Barrys Metal Works to fold and weld into the finished product.

Custom built Aluminium Treadplate Toolboxes

The design guru’s at Barry’s Metal Works have come up with patterns to suit almost any work ute application. These boxes were made for one of our regular clients in May of 2009. The Landcruiser was left with our designer to achieve maximum storage space under the tray. Patterns were developed for laser cutting to minimise folding and welding and the Metal Works Department took care of the fabrication.

This stainless steel benchtop was fabricated from laser cut patterns, complete with two, large, hand-formed stainless bowls.  Through working closely with our customers, BMW does a site visit to determine the exact requirements of our customers and take accurate dimensions to ensure we install a top quality product that achieves total customer satisfaction.
