With almost 110 years experience under their belt, Eilbeck Cranes are moving into the next phase of their business, through the use of new technology.

Eilbeck Cranes have six engineering facilities across Sydney, Perth and Mackay,  and the company’s efficiency and flexibility enables customised overhead cranes, winch, and machining solutions at competitive prices.

As manufacturers of quality engineered cranes, Eilbeck Cranes have invested in innovative technology to remain competitive – their latest purchase is two state-of-the-art Goratu machines.

Charlie Eilbeck, Manager at Eilbeck Cranes Heavy Machining Centre says the machines are “first-class” and “user-friendly” which makes them an asset to Eilbeck’s already diverse capability.

“The two Goratu machines have certainly been an asset to our factory capability.”

“It has allowed us to bring work that we previously had to outsource in-house which has dramatically changed our work model.”

“The Director, Tom Eilbeck’s progressive decisions to expand our technology and manufacturing capability has provided us with an opportunity to continue to be at the forefront of our Industry.”

In addition to Eilbeck Cranes large workpiece capabilities, they have also invested in the latest technology from Nakamura-Tome with their NTRX-300 state of the art multitasking lathe. This enables complex machining of parts in one setup, reducing cycle time and operator handling.

Other latest technologies invested in were Kasto saws, Hwacheon manual machines and recently a new Hanel Lean lift automated storage system.

Anthony Mitchell, Territory Manager at Headland Machinery, says Goratu are machine innovators which gives them a competitive edge amongst their competitors.

“Being a part of this transformation at Eilbeck Cranes has been very rewarding, their investment in the latest technology has really given them an edge over their competitors.”
