FRM installed Freight Mate is a critical link for Buckby Motors in Tasmania
A custom Freight Mate in Buckby Motor’s Galvin Street facility is being utilized to facilitate the 2 levels of their refurbished service centre.
With customers, service and spare parts sales at the upper level and deliveries at the lower level the Freight Mate forms a vital link in transporting all spare parts within the facility.
Buckby’s service manager Nathan Wooley said they had given it a solid workout with full pallets of goods beyond 1000kg and it has handled it all with ease.
Safetech’s distributor in Tasmania handled the Freight Mate specification, installation and after sales support, with this 4600mm Freight Mate being installed in 3 pieces from the lower level.
With branches in Devonport, Launceston and Hobart FRM provide a great support and coverage for Safetech products in the apple isle.
In addition to the Freight Mate installation, the new Buckby site also had an existing Tieman Scissor hoist (now part of Safetech’s product line). FRM were commissioned to relocate and repurpose this existing scissor to the new Buckby’s parts receiving department on the lower level.
Our installation team showcase how Safetech’s expertise and talent can overcome the greatest of challenges.
Both the patient transport lift at the Epworth Hospital and this Dock Hoist at Bexley North presented very challenging site conditions and accessibility restrictions.
Tight corridors and small openings made installation difficult for both projects. But through the work of our talented Installation Engineers and our on-site techs, we were able to come up with solutions to get the jobs done efficiently.
Epworth Hospital Patient Lift
For the Epworth Hospital patient lift, a crane was used to get the lift close to the opening, but then we used a custom Gorbel monorail system to slide the platform into place.
Ergonomics were considered to ensure a smooth installation without risk of injury to the team.
Bexley North Goods Hoist
Bexley North was a unique challenge. The narrow street and small doorway meant only smaller vehicles and forklifts could be used during the install, so larger cranes could not be used to remove the existing Dock Hoist or insert the new Safetech Hoist.
To overcome this, the existing table was cut down into manageable pieces for removal. For the new replacement, our skilled Engineers designed a platform that consists of 3 manageable pieces, that can be assembled in position without compromising its load capacity or structural integrity.

In late November, ifm’s German headquarters sent out their professional film crew to capture what it meant for them to be present in Australia.
As a part of the production, Safetech were happy to host the crew and be part of their story.
Our very own Technical Director Bruce Cox and Electrical Engineer David Burleigh jumped in front of the lens, providing an insight into how Ifm’s product range assist with our own innovations and product developments.
We are excited to continue our strong working relationship with the Ifm team.

The custom paint Freight Mate that triggered a new standard.
Safetech is proud to showcase this recently completed Freight Mate install in the Hills of Adelaide.
This Freight Mate was ordered in Dulux Teahouse Grey to match the aesthetic of the building.
We at Safetech were so impressed with the quality of the finish and its durability in transit that we decided to explore a similar finish as our new standard.
After some exploration of the range and a little bit of focus testing, we have chosen Colorbond’s ‘Monument’ as our standard offering for all Freight Mates ordered from today.
Our original colours, Safetech Blue with Safety Yellow doors, will remain as our premium offering for that high contrast bold statement in your factory. But this will now be provided by request only.
As with all our Freight Mates, the pitless design means that this was easily installed without any complicated preparation or digging of a concrete pit. This eliminated the work for building anchoring or on-site welding that makes all our Freight Mates much easier to fit into existing buildings with difficult access.

Safetech Freight Mate is the compact, modular solution to goods movement in any building that requires transfer of product between floors.
After fitting eighteen AS1-900 Scissor lift Platforms to their facility in Victoria in 2013, Symbion continued their association with Total Lifting Solutions Australia Pty Ltd and Safetech to provide and assist them with the installation of eighteen Lift Tables recessed into the floor and 2 Pallet Accumulators, for their Queensland Distribution Centre. The Lift Platforms were Fitted with the flush mount Safetech Paldisc which allowed them to have the ability to rotate and elevate the platform to always be in the optimal working position.
This eliminated the use of ride on forklift trucks form the work area creating a safer working environment for the staff.
The lift platforms are controlled close to the operator platforms allowing them to control the raise and lower safely yet without leaving their work area.
The Pallet Accumulators were constructed to fit next to each other with the built- in power packs fitted on opposite sides allowing access for maintenance and repair without having to work in a cramped area.
These units are loaded by hand pallet truck and unloaded using a ride on forklift. They have been designed to accommodate Chep and Loscam pallets.
Once installed, the Safetech Pallet Dispensers are an obvious choice in standardising how pallets are handled and stored. No need for complex stacking, signage and storage practices. They also help prolong the life of all pallets by keeping them in sequential rotation.
