Client Introduction

Boyd Metal Industries is located in the heartland of the Perth Industrial suburb of Welshpool and is a WA-owned and operated business. They specialise in heavy steel processing and have a strong reputation in the WA steel processing world. They have a huge range of machines that deliver the services of plate rolling, plate bending, and section rolling. They work with the Mining, Oil, Gas, and Construction sectors.

The Challenge

Boyd’s large workshop covers over 5000 sq.metre with many fixed pieces of arranged equipment.

Their workshop creates a large amount of carbon dust from the sheet metal they use.

Forklift rubber tyre and metal dust was a big issue for the company, and they were looking for a solution to eliminate this issue while reducing the labour time needed for sweeping.

The Solution

Boyd’sManager, Joe, contacted the ASC WA Area Manager, Ross Sheehan, and asked for a demonstration of the ASC Eureka sweepers that would meet their needs and budget. Ross demonstrated the ASC Eureka M1 battery-powered sweeper, which performed outstandingly in their workshop.

Boyd Metal Industries elected to invest in the ASC Eureka battery M1 walk-behind sweeper, as it was the ideal choice.

The machine is designed to deliver quiet, fume-free operation while sweeping as well as easily navigating around fixed equipment.

The large dust filtration system mounted on the ASC M1 sweeper allows operators to sweep for longer periods before emptying debris, saving valuable labour time and ensuring dust-free sweeping.

Ross delivered the sweeper and conducted training with staff at the workshop.
