HASS ST30SSYAnother new machine installed at Park Engineering / Blue Heeler Mining

Park Engineering / Blue Heeler Mining are continuing to invest in state of the art technology, installing and commissioning a brand new HASS ST-30SSY CNC Lathe with Y Axis milling capabilities last week.

This installation increases our ability to turn and mill complex parts and perform multiple operations on a single machine - increases throughput, reduces handling, and improves part accuracy.

The Haas ST-30SSY Series Y-axis turning centres provide 100mm of Y-axis travel (±50mm from the centreline) for off-centre milling, drilling, and tapping, and come standard with 6000-rpm live tooling and a servo-driven C axis for versatile 4-axis capability.

The machining Dia. is approx. 400mm and 600mm in length.

You are more than welcome to inspect at our Unanderra Facility on appointment.

The power supply and computer interface are built into the base of the Multi-Gage.

The Romer Multi-Gage is used for dimensional control of molds, parts, tooling, castings and more. The portable measuring arm can be set up for on-demand measurement and inspection of parts or assemblies.

Used in combination with the SolidWorks and DeZignWorks Software suite Park Engineering has the ability to reverse engineer any item, to supply full detailed engineering drawings and quality control inspections.

Park Engineering acquires Blueheeler

Martin, Kylie and Jarrod Van ElslandAUGUST 2014

Blue Heeler Mining has been acquired by family owned and run business Park Engineering, which is expanding by constantly investing in the best equipment and people.

The precision machining, manufacturing and light fabrication business at 21 Industrial Road, Unanderra, has steadily made a name for itself since Jarrod and Kylie Van Elsland, of J & K Custom CNC Pty Ltd, purchased the business in 2006, a year after establishing their own company in a tiny shed at the rear of a machine shop in Kemblawarra.

Park Engineering was located at Oak Flats when they acquired it, but since 2006 its CNC machine shop has steadily expanded at another location in Unanderra. The business now has a team of 13, including Mr Van Elsland's father Martin and his brother Shane.

"When he [Jarrod] did his apprenticeship he just had an eye for it. He wanted to run a business himself," Mrs Van Elsland said.

"He just bit the bullet and did it. We were having our first baby at the time and were in this tiny little shed out at Kemblawarra. They were tough times."

It did not take long for the Van Elslands to expand Park Engineering, and the work increased when they went on the consumables list for BlueScope Steel.

Now it has acquired Blue Heeler Mining, which manufactures for the mining industry.

It has taken ownership on July 31 2014.

Mrs Van Elsland said this meant they would expand their customer base.

"A lot of our work has been with BlueScope and very local, so we are just trying to branch out into the mines," she said.

"So Park Engineering will become the manufacturer of Blue Heeler products.

"That business has a product that actually goes underground, and that is what we are buying. And we can machine the product that they put underground."

The Park Engineering workforce would increase, she said.
