Heavy Lift & Transport Engineering

The heavy lifting industry

Heavy lifting plays a pivotal role in many other industries. Industrial construction and maintenance projects rely heavily on heavy lifting equipment. Emergency situations often require heavy lifting capacity, as does routine maintenance of industrial plants. Whether you are in civil construction or mining, heavy lifting can be crucial to the safe completion of your project. It is vital that your heavy lifting equipment is fully functional and operational at all times.

How can IRS help?

Our experienced engineers can work swiftly and effectively to repair, restore, or remanufacture a range of important component parts in heavy lifting equipment. We can rebuild stub axle shafts, seal areas, and also have the capacity to swing Axles in our Lathes , we also manufacture seal rings and spacers. Our talent for reverse engineering allows us to work with older pieces of heavy lifting equipment to bring them up to current standards. Many of the heavy lifting systems no longer have easily sourced replacement parts. However, the team at IRS can use their expertise to repair such machines and bring them back to full working function.
