About Mech-Industries

Our story is a tale of Big Dreams.

MECH-INDUSTRIES (Pty) Ltd is a South African company registered (Reg. 2014/269890/07) according to the Company’s Act. It is a majority black-owned (70%) Level 2 BEE company, whose core business as an OEM, is the development, manufacture and marketing the New Generation MECH215 Pneumatic Rock Drill. This, we will do by localizing manufacturing, supporting regional development and creating the much-needed jobs in the Platinum Corridor.

We started MECH-INDUSTRIES because we thought there has to be a better way of hand drilling for operators in the mining industry in South Africa. Hand rock drilling tools are very outdated. The pneumatic mechanism used in the current legendary S215 was introduced in South Africa in the 1920’s and has remained relatively unchanged to date. We therefore identified a real opportunity to design a new generation hand-held pneumatic MECH215 rock drill to enhance the experience of the operators. We are a technology-driven engineering design company that has designed and manufactures this new generation rock drill.

Services

Industrial Design

Our professional service of creating and developing concepts and specifications that optimize the function, value and appearance of products and systems.

Concept Design Engineering

Concept design is the process of taking a napkin sketch, applying creativity and developing a product. This process includes brain-storming, concept sketching, 3D style renderings, 3D CAD creation, Design for Prototyping, and Design for Manufacturability.

Manufacturing Design

This is typically the final 10% of engineering before the product is ready to move into the manufacturing and production phase. There are several considerations and final design verification that need to be completely and accurately checked.

Virtual Prototyping

One of the greatest challenges faced by anyone with a great product idea is visualizing how it might look and work in the real world.

Prototyping

As new products continue to be designed and developed every day, the need and demand for High Quality Prototypes is becoming even greater. Technology advancement and skilled engineers allow our team to build the most professional & highest quality prototypes available. We provide prototypes for every need, including virtual prototypes, early stage concepts, prototypes that demonstrate functionality and final prototypes that are cosmetically accurate and engineered for production.

Our Facilities

Our 2500m2 production facility is currently located in Bodirelo Industrial in the North-West Province.
