AKATA Engineering Solutions specializes in services making use of the latest technology and implementing new strategies to offer the industry unparalleled results. This ranges from professional consulting engineering providing independent expertise in engineering, knowledge, and related areas, front-end designs and desktop studies to feasibility projects encompassing detailed structural, mechanical, piping plus electrical technical drawings, documents, and designs.

Mechanization in deep-level mines will become much more prevalent, owing to its safety, labour and productivity benefits. Therefore, we offer maintenance and repair services solutions to the trackless mining machinery (TMM) industry with cost effective operating models, which result in an overall cost saving and increase in productivity.

Our Services:

We pride ourselves on our professional consultation, providing independent expertise in the fields of engineering.

Our ability develop a deep understanding of our clients’ problems quickly, allows us not to only provide solutions but to deliver a complete offering with the highest level op competence and within the specified time period.

Our draughting and design team has the expertise to produce technical designs and drawings from the conceptual phase, right through to construction and the implementation phase, making use of best practise engineering and project management principles.

Our offering ranges from computer aided layouts and 2D drawings to the more advanced 3D models capable of delivering clash detection, shop detailing and intelligent measuring.

In today’s economic climate clients cannot afford to continuously spend huge amounts of capital on brand new equipment. However, with effective maintenance throughout the machine’s lifecycle, one can extract maximum output and productivity of equipment for its intended purpose. 

Equally, at a certain stage, the equipment reaches a point where it becomes uneconomical to continue repairing it as part of on-going maintenance programmed. At this point, we refurbish and rebuild the machines to its original condition, but at a more economical cost compared to new equipment.

Our team of professional engineers, technicians, artisans, and specialists in manufacturing engineering has the proficiency to plan the practices of manufacturing in the most effective, efficient and economical way possible.
