PRM Engineering and Plantmech were engaged to design, code, install and commission the Control System on a Varley Hi-Rail Machine for Queensland Rail.
This 3 month Project required a complete review and re-design of the control system including all major functions of the hi-rail machine.
PRM Engineering and Plantmech are well suited to this project due to our extensive experience in machine control systems, safety system design and hydraulic control systems.
QMW Industries continuous Improvement philosophy lead them to partner with PRM Engineering Services to help bring their multi-function Tyre Handler into the future.
The system in question originally provided safe handling operation by severely limiting the machines hydraulic capabilities controlled by a simple push button and indication relay box requiring four laboured build days per machine to get the tyre handler control system operational.
