Founded in 1907, Wabi Iron & Steel Corp. has evolved into a leading manufacturer of loading and conveyance systems for the mining industry and one of North America’s premier producers of general and abrasion-resistant castings in iron and steel. Innovation drives us to satisfy customer needs whether it’s developing high-volume haulage equipment such as mine ore cars and skips or producing customized wear resistant castings for crushers. All of our superior products are carefully manufactured on site, ensuring consistent performance. From mining cars and cages to custom wear parts, we can manufacture solutions to suit your requirements.
Wabi has two divisions, each responsible for crafting precision equipment and products for specific purposes. With our head office, fabrication facility, machine shop and foundry located in New Liskeard, Ontario, we maintain control over the entire manufacturing process and ensure quality workmanship on each and every project. Our products are shipped to clients in Canada and the United States as well as Mexico and South America.
Mine Equipment Division
Wabi Iron & Steel’s Mine Equipment Division fabricates, machines and assembles a wide range of equipment in both steel and aluminum including mine skips, underground rail cars and mine cages. Our manufacturing experience and outstanding engineering capabilities are evident in every product we produce whether it’s a 174-man double-deck cage, a 50-tonne skip for a potash mine or Granby-style mine rail cars. Wabi’s skilled engineers can design and develop practical solutions to satisfy unique operating requirements. We take pride in working in close partnership with our customers to understand and satisfy their specific production needs and to take care of all of their after-sales service requirements. Wabi also offers an on-site Conveyance Inspection Service to ensure that a customer’s equipment meets the stringent demands of mining. Our experts can assess shaft conveyance systems and determine whether or not they need maintenance or re-certification.
Wabi’s Foundry Division focuses on the manufacture of abrasion, impact and heat resistant iron and steel castings to provide mining wear parts and wear-resistant castings for smelters and mills. The wide range of components we produce include impactor parts, chute liners, crusher parts, grizzlies, pump parts, mine car wheels and track pads. We work with more than 100 different alloys and can produce castings ranging in weight from 50 lbs. to 8,000 lbs.
Wabi also engineers and custom designs components for industrial and OEM requirements. Plus, with the technical expertise of our steel foundry staff and an advanced on-site laboratory, we can develop solutions for industries that require an exact alloy to fill a specific role.
