The SOTO team are available to help you investigate why materials, equipment, building construction or structures have failed. Using our integrated approach of multidisciplinary engineering and advanced analysis capabilities, we are able to deliver high quality detailed assessments and offer expert witness for litigation.
SOTO has a highly experienced team of computational analysis engineers with extensive knowledge and background in the application of numerical simulation techniques for solving real world engineering problems.
In today’s complex regulatory landscape, managing risk exposure has never been more important. Many engineering designs will require adherence to and be certified as complying with relevant industry and / or Australian Health and Safety Standards. Let SOTO help you.
The SOTO team are qualified and experienced in assessing your mine, plant and equipment against Australian statutory standards and regulations. The team have excelled in delivering detailed reports of issues and solutions, resulting in increased safety, compliance and asset protection.
The SOTO team offers you years of experience in the analysis and design Bulk Materials such as bins, feeders, transfer chutes and conveyors.
With extensive experience across the disciplines of Civil and Structural Engineering SOTO has your design needs covered. Our team specialises in both off-site and on-site project work ensuring your project needs are met.
SOTO Mechanical Engineers have extensive experience in the design and implementation of mine equipment and heavy industrial plant. This includes the design of process lines, mining equipment, machinery, brakes, rolls and piping systems.
R&D is the means by which we identify, create and perfect the designs and solutions that help you to be successful. R&D is delivered by SOTO’s engineers and technical experts through our own unique set of value propositions to help you develop new products or process technology.
With most solid wheel and tyre combinations weighing up to one thousand kilograms, common methods of wheel handling and fitting don’t provide the level of safety required. In recognition of the hazards of heavy duty wheel handling, SOTO and Leussink Engineering have designed and manufactured the SOTO “SWIFTA” Wheel Fitting Unit. This hydraulically controlled QDS mounted unit, enables a heavy solid filled tyre to be safely removed from or fitted to underground mobile equipment while its operator safely manipulates the independent controls from a standing position beside the unit.
Movement of large equipment in an underground mine is one of the most significant hazards that miners are exposed to during each shift. SOTO has developed a Tow Hitch in consultation with mine operators to allow for the controlled and reliable transport of heavy equipment within a mine. This device provides superior features to other commercially available towing devices and is rated to 50T. The Tow Hitch gives the mine operator confidence and control by providing a safely rated connection which allows maximum turning, tilt and deviation capabilities.
