Mine Equipment Division

The Mine Equipment Division of Wabi Iron & Steel Corp. provides proven and reliable underground material handling systems to customers throughout North America. We build mine skips, rail cars, mine personnel cages and other underground haulage equipment to withstand the harshest of working conditions. Combining over a century of industrial manufacturing expertise, innovative engineering skills and outstanding technical support, we strive to exceed customer expectations with every product we produce. That is the Wabi Iron & Steel Corp. promise.

Custom Design and Engineering

The challenges that the mining industry faces can vary significantly from one mine to the next. Underground material handling and haulage systems often require customized design to meet the specific requirements of a particular mining operation. Wabi has the experience and capabilities to custom-produce mining skips, cages and other conveyance systems to meet our customers’ needs.

Developing innovative solutions for exceptional operating situations is a pretty common event in Wabi’s talented engineering department. From multiple deck mine man cages to ore skips to dump systems, Wabi Iron & Steel Corp. can provide high-quality equipment to keep operations running smoothly. Our engineers are as equally adept at producing re-designs to improve equipment performance of existing mine haulage systems.

Our engineering department services include, but are not limited to:

  • Custom design of material handling equipment
  • General arrangement drawings for mine site development
  • Mine site layouts
  • Detailed shop fabrication drawings
  • On-site inspection services
  • Mining conveyance rebuilds

Conveyance Inspection Service

The safety and efficiency of an underground operation greatly depend on the condition of all equipment. A single defect in a mining cage or skip can cause an entire system to falter, substantially decreasing overall productivity and exposing personnel to risk of injury—all of which can negatively affect operations and profits.

Specifically designed for mine shaft cage and skip conveyances, our Conveyance Inspection Service includes comprehensive visual inspection by a professional engineer, historical data review and full reporting. It’s a valuable service that protects assets and ensures worker safety.

Experience that Counts. People that Care.

The Canadian mining industry pumps billions of dollars into the country’s economy each and every year. In fact, exported minerals alone accounted for 20.4% of Canada’s export value in 2012. With mining playing such a significant role in Canada, Wabi Iron & Steel Corp. takes great pride in our ability to provide our customers with the highest quality loading and conveyance systems for their mining operations.
