APCO ENGINEERING
APCO Engineering produces high-quality
cast and machined components and
fittings in ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
These include corrosion-resistant hydraulic
actuators, aluminium deck hatches,
bulkhead shaft seals, aluminium and
stainless steel pipe fittings and custommade parts to suit specific requirements,
including polar operations.
The company has manufactured parts for
the Australian Antarctic Division, the CSIRO
Marine Laboratories and for the Australian
marine research vessel Southern Surveyor
and the French Antarctic vessel L’Astrolabe.
With an in-house foundry and machine shop
facilities backed up by years of experience,
APCO can respond quickly to customer
needs and produce parts to customer
specifications.
The modern foundry is equipped with the
latest technology, including a solid metal
spectrometer, solidification simulation
software and electric induction melting
furnaces. This ensures total control of
production processes and guarantees
customers that APCO products have the
highest casting and metal quality.
A modern machine shop incorporates
conventional machine tools as well as
CNC lathes and machining centres,
including the latest Mazak Integrex I-400S
five axis Multi-Tasking Machine.
CNC machining is backed up with
CAD/CAM technology, ensuring accurate
machining of the most challenging profiles.

Jon Everett, principal of Atlas Idioverse,
is a physicist/engineer with over 40 years’
experience working in instrumentation
design and development within major
industry, university and Australian
Government R&D laboratories and
collaborations with international research
teams. For the past 20 years he has worked
in a university-based research school
developing and constructing autonomous
instrumentation, communications and
power supply systems for deployment at
US/French-Italian/Japanese and Chinese
Antarctic Plateau bases.
Jon has made multiple summer
deployments to Antarctica to install,
service and maintain equipment and
collaborate with international research
groups, and is now based in Hobart.
His multi-disciplined skills were gained
from previous long-term R&D employment
in mining, agriculture, aerospace,
astrophysics, atmospheric research and
alternate energy sectors.
