He gained his internationally recognised mechanical engineering qualification, a Bachelor of Engineering degree, at the Technical University of Cracow, Poland in 1970-75.
In Poland, Joseph was involved in design, laboratory testing and evaluation of hydraulic systems functioning in heavy building and mining machinery.
He also consulted on and investigated aspects of heavy machinery such as improved work methods and destructive forces. Additionally, Joseph tutored in Mechanical Engineering including Principles of Heavy Cranes Constructions and Hydraulic Power Systems.
Joseph began his carrier in Australia in material handling industry when he joined Cooperative Bulk Handling (CBH) where he designed, calculated and drew conveyor systems for the grain industry.
From 2001, Joseph provided bulk materials handling engineering support to a variety of clients within the minerals industry.
He undertook mechanical engineering and design of systems that specifically involved bulk materials handling, processing equipment, piping and rotating machinery, in accordance with the relevant Australian Codes and Standards.
Providing expert ‘know how’ as input to detailed design, basic engineering and conceptual engineering, Joseph understands deliverables required for conceptual, FEED and detailed design, including appropriate controls and quality reviews for each phase.
Joseph competently provides clients with innovative and cost effective solutions to operating problems and capacity constraints in existing facilities, especially in all types of conveyor transfer chutes.
Over the years, Joseph has been involved in developing and improving company standards and design methods and can competently review and comment on vendor data for a wide range of equipment and packages.
