FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Charlotte, NC)—Leading material handling equipment supplier Gough Econ recently announced that the company has yet another reason to celebrate. This time, their team is ecstatic about the success of a recent project during which they assisted with the upgrade of the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra, Australia. In what has been deemed one of the most extensive modernization and revamp projects ever undertaken by a mint, the Royal Australian Mint automated its coin production with bucket elevator systems from Gough Econ.
“We could not be prouder of what we have accomplished with this project. Our team supplied the Royal Australian Mint with two Econ-OLift Bucket Elevators and an Elecon Bi-Axial Bucket Conveyor, the only bucket Conveyors in the world that can move in three different directions with the ability to turn corners in addition to vertical and horizontal movement. We were able to manufacture all three systems at our facility in Charlotte, North Carolina, ensuring the highest possible quality and function when they were delivered across the world,” said Don Calvert of Gough Econ.
Gough Econ’s elevator installation was part of the Royal Australian Mint’s $60-million modernization of material handling and automation systems. With a variety of robots and automated guided vehicles, the system serves the purpose of delivering blank coins to each of the Mint’s 13 stamping presses and then feeding the finished coins to the facility’s packaging area.
Calvert went on to say, “Gough Econ takes pride in everything we build and is dedicated to supplying only the most durable and reliable materials for every project. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the Royal Australian Mint on this upgrade and are excited about how these new elevators will help them streamline their operations.”
