Wear Parts Australia | Designed for Australian Conditions
Australian Designed for Australian Conditions
Since 2004, ground engaging tools leader Wear Parts Australia (WPA) has specialised in the production of high-quality, longer-lasting machine parts designed to withstand the toughest Aussie conditions.
WPA has filled the void in the market for machine operators that demand the best earthmoving parts for when they want to dig for longer and shift more payloads. Whether it’s high quality bucket teeth, more durable cutting edges, or extreme performance rippers, WPA’s products are built to last.
Australian designed from the ground up, WPA understand the importance of using the best materials and techniques to produce products you can count on. They hold a hardened focus on wear performance innovation and product quality, propelling them to top tier status as a trusted GET supplier. By embracing an innovative approach and deep industry experience, WPA’s team of experts constantly work on developing new technologies that redefine wear life.
Exclusively developed by WPA, the XP® range of extreme performance wear parts is specifically designed to deliver a better quality product to suit the most abrasive and toughest earthmoving applications. “We have created a product that is unmatched in terms of durability, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness,” said WPA Director Sean Mason.
“Our goal is to provide customers with products that exceed their expectations. That’s why our team is committed to pushing the boundaries when it comes to innovation, to deliver superior wear performance and wear life, as well as a solid return on investment on every wear parts changeout, and every machine in their fleet.
“From materials like our 1XP® Advanced Wear Steel and 2XP® Cast Alloy, to our cutting edge heat treatment processes like Advanced Through Hardening and Double Tempering, we strive to provide the best solutions for our customers in every application.”
Historically, WPA has observed too many customers experiencing frequent issues with their scarifiers, which led to downtime and unnecessary maintenance costs. The company identified that the industry standard metal used in manufacturing was not always strong enough to withstand the demanding conditions of the job.
The WPA team took decisive action and switched to forged steel in order to provide customers with an alternative that would stack up and meet the tasks at hand.
“The results were remarkable, with the higher quality forged steel offering higher durability, strength and resistance to breaking,” he said.
“The shanks made from forged steel are able to withstand harsh conditions, and significantly reduce the frequency of breakages. This saves our customers time and money, allowing them to focus on the job at hand without the fear of breakdown.
1XP® Cutting Edges
The 1XP® advanced wear steel represents WPA’s commitment to continuous improvement and product innovation. The key ingredients in 1XP® wear steel create a unique cutting edge with ‘work hardening’ capability, which means the harder you work, the harder the steel becomes.
As proven in several trials in the toughest, most abrasive conditions, 1XP® wear steel delivers substantial wear performance improvements of up to 30 per cent, compared to the industry standard 30MnB steel that other market players supply.
This innovation extends to improving material flow with sharper bevels and clean ramp angles, which reduce loading times, whilst also addressing critical running costs by improving fuel burn and reducing tyre wear.
Tougher Ripper Boots
Cast using 2XP® wear alloy, WPA's XP-R® ripper boots are subjected to longer exposure times during normalisation, and then effectively double heat treated to create a tougher, more resilient casting. Increased toughness means less chance of breakage, higher performance, and extended wear life in even the most extreme applications. The XP-R® ripper boots continue to outperform other brands that may simply fail or wear out, enabling customers to work longer and hit production targets faster.
“Our team works tirelessly to ensure every product produced not only meets the highest industry quality standards, but meets our own standards of excellence,” said Mason.
“We’re well aware that our customers rely on us for high quality, longer-lasting machine parts, and we stop at nothing to deliver on that promise. “One of the ways we set ourselves apart from the competition is through our focus on customer service as we believe that building strong relationships is essential to success. That's why we work closely with each of our customers to understand their unique needs, and devise tailored solutions that meet those needs. Whether you're a small business owner or a major mining operation, we’re committed to providing the same high level of quality service and support.
