Innovation. Quality. Care.

Mobile Machine Specialists

Over the past 15 years, MRA has developed control system software for more than 35 new mobile machines and numerous upgrade and performance improvement projects across Australia.

The software has ranged from basic manually operated machines through to complex and fully automated Stacker Reclaimers with SIL rated machine to machine anti-collision systems. MRA develops all software in-house, including the complete functional safety lifecycle.

We engage a library of flexible tools to allow our software to be customised to client programming standards.

In addition, we utilise existing and extensively tested functional blocks when applicable to reduce development and commissioning costs and durations.
