Meridian Engineers began life in 1987 as structural engineering consultants providing expertise in the fields of structural and mechanical engineering. In 1998, with the in-house engineering skills developed from servicing large scale mining companies, Meridian established an industrial weighing systems division.
Today, Meridian has established itself as a unique Australian company that offers quality in-house designed large scale weighing and loading products combining with specialist engineering consultancy services.
The multi-disciplinary team of engineers at Meridian have developed innovative products for industrial weighing and loading. Meridian has successfully completed projects such as providing control systems to load 30,000 tonne iron-ore trains automatically, and then weigh them on the move at speeds up to 80 km/hr.
The main products Meridian currently market are:
Our products are designed and manufactured by us. The products include our patented bolt on load cell sensors that attach to railway lines to provide a weight indication when a train traverses the rail. Our bolt on load cells are also attached to the train loading silos so we can measure and control in real time the amount of material loaded into wagons.
Our clients are all the major resource companies including BHP, RIO Tinto, Vale, FMG, Alcoa and freight companies such as Queensland Rail.
