Mango Crate Tipper

With designing as one of our strengths, IBS Engineering were approached to design a semi-automatic bulk crate tipper.  The final design of the tipper has the ability to have three crates on the system at a time.  One crate on the input conveyor; one crate on the control feeding the packing line; and one crate […]

FNQ Sugar Loco Upgrade

Our latest project for FNQ Sugar saw IBS undertaking a sugar cane loco upgrade by refitting the engine and transmission for locos #4 & #5 as well as making any modifications and restorations as needed.  Both locos were refitted with Cummins engines and Allison transmissions giving them more power, just in time for the 2015 […]

Below Ground Palletisers

One of IBS’s current projects is fabricating six below ground palletisers for Rapisarda Enterprises. Rapisarda had previously approached IBS to help innovate and improve their processes, our first project for them was the “Melon Warrior” (you can read all about it on our new look website).  They then approached us about improving their palletising system. […]

Melon Transport Truck

The workshop crew have recently put the finishing touches on the affectionately named “Melon Warrior”; a melon transport truck that will soon be used by Rapisarda Farms in the Burdekin for transporting Melons picked in the paddock back to the packing facility.

Hi-Rail Spray Truck

Recently the Centre of Engineering Innovation completed a project to design and manufacture a mobile spray unit for our local Bundaberg Sugar Mills. Taking an existing truck, the team developed a Hi-Rail unit that assembled to the main truck chassis without major modification allowing the truck to pick up and drop down onto existing loco […]

Shape Up & Ship Out

The Centre of Engineering Innovation team is capable of handling almost anything, and we do too! It has been an interesting year so far for the crew, even with the good old GFC… In June we manufactured and exported 14 freezer racks to Papua New Guinea, these racks were  designed to be manufactured quickly and […]

Jam the brakes on!

Recently, Queensland Sugar had been having trouble with one of their feed conveyor belts running off in reverse once power to the motor had been cut and the brakes engaged on the drive assembly. The IBS Centre of Engineering Innovation was approached to solve the problem by either modification of the   existing setup or the […]
