If you are looking to up-skill your workforce, train your operators or require information on new products, please call to enquire about our training options.

On-site support

Specialising in industrial installations, our electrical and mechanical department has extensive experience in the design, installation, commissioning and servicing of automated systems and industrial projects.

We have the resources and industrial experience to be able to provide you with timely on-site support when you need it most.

Mechanical services

At PFi we pride ourselves on being able to reduce customer down time and costs on a range of mechanical service equipment.

We offer planned preventative maintenance programs with fixed costs and service schedules as well as emergency breakdown assistance. Full reporting to your site-specific requirements is included with our service.

The team at PFi has expertise in the maintenance and repair of a wide range of machinery and industrial components including but not limited to hydraulics, pneumatics, compressed air, air handler units, heat exchangers, dairy equipment, conveyors, gearboxes, fixed and mobile plant.

Refrigeration and air conditioning services

Our refrigeration and air conditioning team is dedicated to reducing our client’s costs by offering customised preventative maintenance, regular reporting and energy efficiency and loss prevention programs.
As part of our offering we are proud to be able to provide system design, air conditioning maintenance and installation, refrigerated chiller and freezer maintenance, 24 hour breakdown service, PLC programming and SCADA designs, turnkey refrigeration design and manufacture and compressor rebuild programs.

Electrical contracting

With a team of mobile industrial electricians, PFi have the resources to support our clients at short notice. Not only do we integrate the products we supply, we can also provide electrical installation services for equipment free issued by the customer.
Our electrical workshop is equipped with the latest tools and instrumentation to support projects and installations of varying sizes and complexities. We also have a dedicated testing room for the re-build and testing of servo-motors and systems along with a separate room for switchboard manufacture.
The team at PFi can also provide quick response, on-site maintenance and breakdown assistance to help keep your plant operating.

Workshop manufacturing

PFi have a fully equipped manufacturing and servicing workshop based in Brisbane.

We have an excellent range of workshop mechanical equipment to service our clients.  With 3 mills, 2 lathes and a huge variety of associated drills, benders, saws and polishing equipment, PFi can fabricate simple or complex mechanical parts and machines. From servo-motor rebuilds to machining jobs, PFi can help you with your workshop needs.

The products and systems distributed by PFi are fully supported within this facility. The team of machinists, fitters and fabricators at PFi has the mechanical know-how to help you achieve the results you desire. Both in-house mechanical fabrication and on-site mechanical support is offered by PFi. Our resources ensure that fast turn-around times are achievable for urgent jobs.

Within our facility there is also a dedicated clean room for switchboard manufacture.

Robotic simulations

Investment in a robotic system is often a big decision and understanding whether that avenue is an appropriate solution for your situation is very important. In the right application robotics can provide cost savings, productivity increases, reduced health and safety risks and more flexibility to your system.

To help you verify if a robot cell is appropriate, the staff at PFi can complete robot simulations so that you can visualise your concept installation prior to any works being completed. This time spent at the start of the project can be very worthwhile and greatly reduce the project risk.

Upfront simulations can provide several benefits such as determining the reach limitations of the robot, the payload limitations, approximate cycle times, and the floor space required by the installation. Also by being able to see the cell, this can give you a much better understanding of exactly what is involved in the cell and whether this solution will work for you.

Electrical design drafting

Professional electrical designs and drawings are completed by the staff at PFi using professional electrical software packages. These drawings provide a clear description of the electrical circuits in the machinery provided and are very useful for maintenance, upgrades and servicing of equipment.

Mechanical design drafting

Our engineers and draftspersons have extensive experience in the design of machinery. 3D design is typically completed utilising the Autodesk Inventor software package. Our skilled staff can develop both professional concept sketches for your feasibility studies or detailed designs for manufacture.

2D design is performed using AutoCAD.

OH&S risk assessments

Providing safety solutions and systems has been a core strength of PFi for many years. The experienced staff at PFi can perform methodical risk assessments for your plant and provide you with recommended courses of action.

PFi can provide you a report on the risk assessment in accordance with the appropriate standards (EN ISO 13849-1, EN 61508) and detail the performance level (PL) required or the safety integrity level (SIL) as preferred by your company.

Consulting

At PFi, we pride ourselves on helping our customers overcome challenges that they are facing. Our team can draw upon a breadth of experience in industry to help you find a solution that is both cost effective and practical. Whether it is a small job or a complex project, PFi are able to assist you decide which is the best course of action for your situation.

As part of our consulting offering we are able to help you with feasibility studies, calculate return on investment, complete OH&S risk assessments, provide 3D or 2D design concepts, develop robotic simulations and provide project management services.
