Set up of automated raked pile cutter
Raked pile after cutting and weld preparation


Goldmont Engineering sub-contracts on construction work.  Our specialty is cutting and weld preparation of raked piles commonly used in jetty or wharf construction. 

The in-house developed Automated Pile Cutter (APC) machine will cut and weld prep a raked pile in less than one hour.    

This is the first machine in the world that is able to automate the cutting and weld preparation of raked tubular steel piles.

It can be programmed to cut and weld-prep piles of any diameter & thickness and at any rake angle.

It has dramatically decreased both the time taken to cut and prepare piles and the consumables used.

It has eliminated many health and safety issues associated with the traditional manual approach to preparing piles.

The APC machine is patented in Australia – Australian Patent No. 2014292801
