Safety and Efficiency

New Concept Mining powered by Epiroc's application centre houses specialised equipment to conduct application specific product testing


These in-house facilities aid in the: 

  • rapid development and testing of new products, 
  • continuous quality assurance testing,
  • customisation of products for customer requirements, 
  • improving industry knowledge base with continual scientific research. 

Resin bolt installation machine

This machine controls the installation parameters of resin rockbolt samples to minimise variation in sample preparation impacting test results. 


Combination Shear and Tensile testing

The CST tests rockbolts under a variety of quasi-static loading configurations to simulate underground loading conditions. Forces can be applied to rockbots in shear, tension, or in combination. 


Dynamic Impact Testing

The DIT (Dynamic Impact Tester) is designed to impart impulse of energy into dynamic rock bolts. Energy is imparted by a free falling mass that impacts onto the bolt sample which is fixed inside a steel tube, that is pinned to the testing frame.
