I designed a shuttle car and installed it inside a chute at Morilla mine where I was working. The total design of the conveyor tipping inside the chute was wrong.The material was supposed to split up equally on two conveyors at the discharge end but most of the material went to the one side.After I have installed my shuttlecar it helped to devide the material equally. I installed it on top of rails and it was operated with a air cylinder to move it to the most needed position. I was awarded by top management for my efforts.
I designed coffinjack boxes for VaalReefs mine where I have been working for 21 years. There was a lot of movement in the shaft and by designing the boxes and installed them myself I eliminated a lot of movement in the shaft.Was awarded best boilermaker award
