Workshops

OZTEC operates 1 workshop in Toowoomba. The 7SD Business Park (Croft St) site has 6,600 sq.metres of shop area on 16,000 sq.metres of land. There are 8 gantry cranes in the workshop: 2 x 5 tonne; 4 x 10 tonne; 2 x 20 tonne with 7.5 metres under hook.

The design office has 2 seats of SolidWorks 2012 and 1 seat of Inventor 2008. We use COSMOS for finite element analysis to optimize designs.

We predominantly use MIG welding, although stick welding is also used.

We predominantly use MIG welding, although stick and TIG are also used, depending on the application.

We now have Plasma Cutter with an 11m bed which is integral to production in the workshop, and has significantly increased efficiency as we no longer need to outsource all our plasma cutting requirements.  

Laser cutting is outsourced in Toowoomba. Depending on the volume of work involved, we outsource machining and bending/pressing as well. We have an excellent working relationship with our suppliers and turnaround times for outsourcing are usually very prompt.
