The Australian cattle dog has become iconic in the Australian agricultural landscape because of their unique attributes. Energetic, hardworking, and intelligent, the dogs, bred originally from a combination of English drovers’ dogs and dingoes, are tough enough to work for hours in harsh Australian conditions.

When it comes to paper and cardboard recycling, Australia is relatively well-positioned globally. The National Waste Report 2018 shows that about 60 per cent of Australia’s paper and cardboard waste is recycled1, with other estimates putting the figure as high as 87 per cent 2. All paper or cardboard recycling processes often begin by shredding the raw material in an industrial shredder – also known as a mulcher – before moving on to pulping, de-inking, drying and rolling of new paper.

When a major water pumping station approached CBC Australia about a shaft coupling problem, they not only received a product type that was better suited to their application but managed to reduce the amount of inventory they had in stock by over 500%. This resulted in improved pump performance and significant cost savings.

Many mines and quarries in Australia are located in remote parts of the country, potentially hundreds of kilometres away from an urban centre. The environments in which these motors operate are extremely hot (reaching 40 to 55 degrees), dusty, and often corrosive.

One of CBC Australia’s key partners for shaft coupling products is Timken®, which provides the Timken Quick-Flex® shaft couplings to operate in harsh environments, especially within industries such as mines and quarries while requiring minimal maintenance.
