Hyden Engineering

Bob Ifield, Hyden’s CEO, has been exposed to engineering from birth being a son of the prolific inventor Richard Joseph Ifield (Dick). Dick was best known for the development of the fuel system for jet aircraft from the Whittle to the Concorde but he also designed and developed fuel injection systems, hydrostatic transmission systems, limited ratio differentials and many other devices and had about 122 patents in his name. Bob and his three brothers were fortunate to be technically involved with the later part of Dick’s career and Bob, gaining an appetite for engineering and marketing of new concepts, became General Manager for the Ifield group of companies. The company became interested in the challenges presented by mining primarily through a relationship with Charles Deamer, the chief engineer for Noyes Brothers. Charles became Bob’s second mentor and the Ifield companies became deeply involved in the development of transmission systems for several new machines conceived by Charles and hydraulic systems for mining machines generally. The Ifield Company was wound down in 1988 following a technical successful project concerning a new Skid Steer Transmission system for the M113 military vehicles and the Ifield brothers then pursued different interests. Bob recommenced Hyden Engineering in 1991 and has since been joined by family members Craig and Ben. Initially, the core activity was to be the repair of hydraulic and lubrication equipment and purpose designed software was developed in-house, to track the ‘root cause of failure’ to provide a key maintenance management tool.
