Industrial firms throughout Australia handle the toughest work in extreme climates. This work is hugely taxing on equipment and necessitates the best machines being used and calibrated for what needs doing. When a tight margin of error is exceeded, both crew and equipment worth millions are put at risk, and accidents can happen. Eliminate the risk and uncertainty through precise field weighing services in Hobart from Marginal Field.

For advice on your specific requirements for field engineering services and the operation of specialised equipment.
When your business needs to work around the unknown, our services enable you to proceed with confidence safely. We work with multiple industries:
Defence and Shipbuilding – Sea trials are often a major source of tension between ship designers, ship manufacturers, and shipyards. Designers need to have certainty that before the ship hits the waves, the engineering supports the requirements of the client. During manufacturing, minor defects can accumulate to result in significant issues and imbalances on the waves. Rather than waiting until these errors manifest, we assist by providing precise calculations for the centre of gravity and actual weight.
Oil and Gas – Satisfy your clients and protect your reputation by confirming weight and centre of gravity design before client handoff. Our hydraulic systems handle equipment weighing 270 tonnes and safely assess the structures’ and modules’ designs.
Mining and Resource – Bulk handling mobile equipment must be properly measured for accurate and safe usage. Our experience with services in this field includes work on stackers, reclaimers, ship loaders, rail cars, car tippers, haul packs, and more. We ensure that you have proper documentation resulting from these tests, as we incorporate consulting engineers and client witnesses to protect your assets.
Port and Marine – We use a weighing jack / Loadcell combination for all major ports in Australia, including Hobart. With our experienced team, we handle all the engineering necessary to weigh otherwise-unwieldy equipment such as container cranes. The risks associated with off-balance cranes cannot be overstated. We also conduct less common work that ports nevertheless require, including straightening bent piles.
In two words: experience and thoroughness. We have been operating since 1989 in the science of field weighing with hydraulic jack equipment. In addition to the science, we are also highly familiar with the detailed regulations for the industries we work with and will ensure that your machinery is in full compliance with government mandates. We provide you with accurate data in our standard template format but will also work with a customised template that you have if needed. Our engineers will take whatever is unknown or not yet understood about your worksite and clarify it to give you certainty when approaching your work.
We are highly responsive and keep our overhead costs low so we can focus on providing the most reliable field engineering and field weighing services. Our uniquely-designed jacking and weighing equipment efficiently completes jobs with remarkable precision, and our highly-competent engineers consistently verify and countercheck every load case to remove errors and inaccuracies.
