Graham Oliver | Director
Graham has been working in the railway industry for 25 years and in the heavy haul sector for the past 13 years. During this period, he recognised problems and shortfalls with some of the infrastructure that could be improved to increase performance and he saw a need for increased longevity, functionality and reliability. Most railway operators do not design, engineer or manufacture railway infrastructure components, so he started Concept Rail Services Pty Ltd and teamed up with Quadro Design to design, engineer and patent a heavy duty level crossing that is a unique product suitable for extremely heavy road and rail traffic.
Jack de Blank | Director
Jack specialises in materials handling, crusher and mill wear liner design, modification to existing mining equipment, reverse engineering, design conceptualisation and advanced SolidWorks® skills. He is a mechanical design Draftsman working in mainly machine design and materials handling and a registered builder. Jack started using SolidWorks in 1996 (as 3D Innovations), and from his first job, started pushing the boundaries of the software’s capabilities. Again this was mainly in the area of machine design & materials handling, with his main client being Bradken & later Growth Asia for wear liners & mill design. Jack was instrumental in the creation of the WA SolidWorks User Group in 1998, which was later taken over and administered by Intercad. Jack has given a number of presentations to the user group over the years, and still continues to do so.
Rodney specialises in pattern making, mould design, SolidWorks® library compilation, reverse engineering, weldment design, detail drafting and advanced SolidWorks® skills.
