SafeGauge has an innovative focus on developing new technology designed to remove technicians from the ‘line of fire’ when live testing heavy mobile plant machinery in heavy industries, such mining, defence, construction, agriculture and oil & gas.
Our goal is to Eliminate Live Work (ELW) and thereby minimise the chances of crush and fluid injection injuries, whilst conducting necessary pneumatic and hydraulic maintenance duties.
To this end, we’ve developed a range of specialist wireless testing solutions that allow workers to safely maintain heavy machinery from a safe distance (up to 50m / 164ft). Our multi-award winning SafeTest range of pressure transducers (PT Series), dial indicators (DI Series) and tachometers (TM Series) are the go-to solutions for heavy industry applications.
When combined with the SafeGauge Wireless MultiTool, maintenance technicians can now take multiple readings from any combination of SafeTest products simultaneously - minimising machine downtime and delivering significant productivity gains.
SafeGauge founder and Managing Director, Luke Dawson, routinely worked on heavy-machinery during his time as a heavy plant mechanic on multiple Australian mine-sites. Concerned by the level of risk exposure, he began working on developing a range of wireless testing solutions to help eliminate live work on site.
Luke’s passion for safety, performance and efficiency has been the driving force behind what SafeGauge is today – earning recognition from multiple industry bodies, including winning the 2022 NSW Mining Small Business of the Year, the 2022 Good Design Awards, the 2022 HMA (Hunter Manufacturing Awards) Award for Excellence in Product Design, and the APAC Insider Award for Safety Tech Innovation of the Year 2022.
Today, SafeGauge remains proudly Australian-owned, with sales in over 15 countries and backed by a global distribution network that promotes and supports safer working practices in heavy industry sectors all around the world.
