Mining and Forestry Equipment

The mining and forestry sectors face a variety of unique challenges related to equipment design, evaluation and assessment.

Besides structural durability challenges, engine and cooling system application validations, and stability analysis, regulatory agencies are mandating safety-related verifications such as ROPS, FOPS, TOPS and OPS.

PAMI is able to test all industry equipment to meet the standard stafety requirements and work with the client to design solutions if needed.

Typical equipment our clients test includes:

  • Tree-harvesting equipment
  • Underground vehicles and surface equipment for mining
For the forest industry, PAMI has designed and developed full-scale tree seeding and plug-fertilization equipment and assisted Forestry Canada with development of a full size grizz mixer.
