John Brooks Ltd have highly experienced staff that can cater for all of your engineering service requirements. We have experienced sales engineers on staff at each of our John Brooks Auckland, John Brooks Wellington, and John Brooks Christchurch offices, with huge industry knowledge and expertise. Whether you need help with number 8 wire theories, or you need mechanical design undertaken, or you require inertia calculations prepared for your servo motor, John Brooks Ltd can help.
Over the years we’ve provided our full engineering advice, design, and implementation skills to many successful New Zealand (and international) businesses. We’ve built complete conveying and electronic sorting systems for Tegel Chicken. We’ve built a 4-axis robotic welding machine for use at Auckland Airport’s Air New Zealand jet engine repair facility. We’ve built kiwifruit tray packing technology for a major Te Puke kiwifruit packing house that packs kiwifruit into trays 400% faster than staff can. And we’ve dealt with many thousands more customers since 1964.
We can design and commission new machinery as required and we can also upgrade existing machinery and systems. Our years of expertise can guide you on whether to upgrade your existing equipment, or buy newer or alternative products. The right decision can save you thousands of dollars.
John Brooks Ltd also looks to save our customers money via energy savings. With New Zealand energy prices at an all-time high, reducing energy consumption can be of huge benefit to a business reliant on engines and drives in production activities. Our solutions for the New Zealand dairy and wine industries especially, which often use leading edge technology and fluid motion automation, have produced amazing energy savings for some customers we’ve helped.
We know that the key to a successful engineering outcome is to plan and design a solution that will work, before any building is commenced. Our staff can come to your business address and have an on-site consultation with you to identify your key factors of concern. We’ll then go back to our office and design an engineering solution to fit your exact requirements. We have an extensive range of products and technologies available to us, and because we understand the limitations and strengths of each component, we can design the very best solution for you, free from bias.
Where possible, our solutions aim for complete compatibility of the mechanical, electrical, and software components selected, ensuring a better overall “fit”, and giving less likelihood of unnecessary breakdowns.
Alongside our general services, we specialise in Automation and Motion Control, Breakdown Support, Product Sourcing, and Drive Programming.
