Parkville Station Metro Tunnel

Southcott was commissioned to provide a hydraulic system to synchronously operate two separate travelling-formwork cars for Victoria's new Parkville Station Metro Tunnel.

Southcott's proportional electrohydraulic Walvoil DPX050 valve operates the two travelling formwork systems' jacks driven via PID closed-loop linear actuator feedback and PWM command control.


160kW Transmission, Pump and Valve Bench

Southcott engineers designed and built a versatile test bench capable of thoroughly testing a vast array of transmissions, hydraulic pumps and valve components. The bench was specifically designed to meet the needs of servicing mining equipment like diggers, face shovels etc.

In mining where downtime is critical, ensuring rebuilds are fully tested prior to refitting can save lots of time and money to any company.

Given that available pre-designed trailers were not suitable for the load capacity, Southcott custom-built the trailers in our workshop to a specific engineering design that certified the load capacity and safety requirements.
