Whittaker Contracting was established in 2003 as a Diesel Plant repair business, branching in to repair of heavy earthmoving attachments particularly focussed in the underground space. They carry out complete refurbishment and repair of all types of attachments/bodies including buckets, tubs and blades and manufacture new attachments for clients using primarily Bisalloy products.
Whittaker Contracting has been working with Bisalloy for the past 10 years, using predominately BIS80 for structural components of bucket/body builds, BIS400 for internal/external wear liners and BIS500 for zipper lips/wear bars.
Dylan Todman, Fabrication Foreman commends the consistency of Bisalloy products, both in terms of wear life, weldability and formability. “We have had issues with other wear plates splitting while being formed which poses a major safety issue for press operators. The weldability of Bisalloy steel ensures we can rely on the product not to crack after weld-out and meet tight deadlines”.
Bisalloy Steels is Australia’s only manufacturer of high strength and high hardness quenched and tempered steel. BISALLOY® WEAR steel is the number one performance steel choice of countless industries because of its remarkable hardness and ability to withstand the toughest wear and tear.
