International leaders in mine support technology

Our strategy is to collaborate with our customers to develop ground support solutions that improve safety and mining efficiencies. We specialise in difficult ground conditions. In order to achieve this, Epiroc has considerable in-house Rock Engineering, Mining and Engineering competencies within our service, design and production teams. Our design philosophy allows us to create customised solutions to suit specific mine requirements. It is our goal to create a ground support solution for customers that allows them to spend more time mining.

Our product categories include:

  • Energy absorbing rockbolts,  designed for applications in high stress environments requiring high deformation and energy absorption capacity such as squeezing, rock burst and seismicity prone excavations.
  • Quasi-static rockbolts, designed for quasi-static loading conditions such as gravity induced ground movement.
  • Anti-Spin Cable, designed for instant pre-tensioning and post-grouting with semi-mechanised installation.
  • Pumpable resin, two-part pumpable resin to simplify the installation of rockbolts and cables whilst improving the quality of installed support.
  • Pre-stressing units, hydraulic devices designed for the safe and efficient installation of elongate support such as mine poles, timber packs, cribs and barrels.
  • Safety net, synthetic mesh providing areal coverage for additional rockfall protection in applications where steel mesh may not be practical or has been damaged.
  • Monitoring and warning devices, designed for immediate indication of changes in ground conditions to mining personnel active in the immediate vicinity.

Our Application Centre provides technical support that includes:

  • Dynamic Impact Testing, allows energy-absorbing rockbolts to be tested at impact velocities 6.4 m/s.
  • Combination Shear and Tensile testing, allows quasi-static force to be applied to rockbolts in tension, shear or in combination.
