The mining industry is noteworthy for the multiplicity of forged, cast and finished machined products it requires, and staying abreast of engineering and design developments across product areas such as gears, slew bearings, crusher and drive shafts and breaker/dryer tyres is a huge task.

The FFF team is well known and highly regarded by many of Australia’s leading heavy engineering firms supplying the mining industry. The FFF difference is our ability to match products and suppliers with uncommon or unique client demands, as well as to fill regular orders quickly and cost-effectively.

FFF gears, shafts and bearings are in all major mines in Australia including BHP, Rio Tinto, Fortescue, Newcrest and Xstrata.

All FFF products come with full material certificates including mechanical tests, ultrasonic, steel cleanliness, heat treatment reports and a full inspection report prior to despatch by our own FFF inspectors.


Heat treated gear blanks ready for machining or finished gearing. Smaller drive gears to large Girth gears up to 15m diameter can be supplied in a single piece or helix angle cut into halves (or quarters) for easier transport and installation.

Slew Bearings

FFF supplies various forgings into dragline slew bearings, top and bottom rail path forgings and load roller forgings.


Standard shafts and super gyratory cone crusher shafts. Experience providing shafts upto 25m in length.


Mill pinions in through hardened, induction hardened or case carburised condition.
