The Rock Reinforcement center in Feistritz/Drau, Austria

The Atlas Copco Swellex plant in Canada

Atlas Copco Rock Reinforcement


Ongoing development of faster, safer and more exotic tunnelling techniques places a constant pressure
on manufacturers to provide more efficient rock support solutions which will help the shortening of cycle
time. As ground conditions get more and more demanding, emphasis is placed on flexible and intelligent
support systems in which rock and soil reinforcement is expected to contribute to the productivity and
safety of the operation. The trend has been to provide rock support and reinforcement systems that are
easy to install, assure efficiency and provide safety.
For the last 25 years, Atlas Copco has been offering the Swellex concept as a unique, safe and reliable
system of rock support. As the market leader in underground rock excavation technology, Atlas Copco
has also been developing safer and more efficient rock reinforcement products such as the Manganese
line rock bolts, which are manufactured from a special type of steel. Another development is the Swellex
Premium line of rock bolts, for use where high yield load and stiffness are expected from the reinforcement system.
When Atlas Copco bought MAI in 2001, the rock reinforcement center moved to Feistritz/Drau, Austria.
This acquisition made it possible to introduce a whole new range of products for Atlas Copco customers,
the MAI SDA anchors, which are now being developed for mechanized installation by both surface and
underground drill rigs, creating fresh applications in rock and soil reinforcement.
Atlas Copcos Rock Reinforcement Center in Austria brings together the skills necessary for the development of superior rock reinforcement products to serve the tunnelling, mining and construction industries
worldwide. The combined product portfolio includes Swellex rock bolts and MAI SDA anchors with all
necessary accessories.
The strategy to act as The professional supplier of specific and complete solutions in rock and soil reinforcement has paid off, and the effort to invent and commit ourselves to more productive solutions is
stronger than ever.

Quality assurance means safety


Quality assurance for safer
reinforcement
Safety in a mine is not something Atlas Copco,
takes lightly. Its a major issue for those who own
and those who work there. A minor fault in a reinforcement bolt may prove fatal. Thats why
Atlas Copco rock bolts are rigorously tested to ensure the best possible quality and reliability. In fact
our Quality assurance system is the most comprehensive on the rock reinforcement market today.

ISO - Management systems


that work harder
ISO standards represent the best management
systems for quality and environmental issues. Its
therefore not surprising that Atlas Copco is ISO
9001 certified to systematically control overall
quality. The company is also ISO 14001 certified to minimise the environmental impact of the
company. These are applied at every Atlas Copco
manufacturing plant as well as every distribution
and customer centre. They basically form the basis
of the companys Quality Assurance program.

Quality control starts at the


suppliers...
ISO certification is the prerequisite for every
Atlas Copco supplier. Whether its rods for MAI
self drilling anchors or steel profiles for Swellex,
suppliers have to follow our specified tolerances.
To ensure their quality, we test every batch for
deviations and register the results.

...and ends at the clients


To confirm that finished bolts can withstand the
working pressures stipulated, we carry out destructive tests on samples of Swellex bolts and MAI
self-drilling anchors. And if this is not enough, every bolt is stamped with its own number. So should
a problem arise, the cause can be efficiently traced
back and action can be taken promptly to rectify it.
In accordance with ISO9001, Atlas Copco has
developed comprehensive instruction and training
material to enable end-users to install bolts and
anchors correctly and safely.

Quality assurance means safety


MAI SDA self-drilling anchors
There are two important quality parameters for a
MAI self-drilling anchor. Firstly, that anchors can
withstand the stipulated working pressure and,
secondly, that couplings and bits can be easily
threaded.
Ultimate load tests are carried out on 1 in 200 of
the manufactured anchors. A special test bench
pulls these anchors until they break and the results
are monitored. Should an anchor fall short of the
given tolerances, production is stopped and the
fault is rectified.
Atlas Copco MAI also offers a hot dip galvanized
MAI self-drilling anchor. This galvanised layer has
to be the right thickness for the couplings and bits
to be threaded on properly.
Again, a sample of anchors is removed from the
production line during each shift and the thickness
of the galvanisation is tested and registered.

Swellex rock bolts


This expandable rock bolt is more complex to
manufacture than a MAI SDA. The steel profile is
pressed into shape and a bushing is welded on the
open end-piece. As pressurised water is used to
install a Swellex bolt in the hole, leakages are not
wanted. Thats why each and every bolt is tested
for leakage as part of the production process. This
unique operation is augmented by destructive
expansion tests where 1 bolt in 200 is pressurised
to the limit to ensure that the batch can withstand a
minimum a working pressure of 300 bar.
In effect, one sample bolt is removed at the beginning of each shift and one when a new batch of
steel profiles is used. This means that 1% of all
bolts are sacrificed in the name of quality assurance.
We, at Atlas Copco, believe that assuring quality
throughout the complete supply and distribution
chains is the best way of ensuring the highest level
of safety for our customers.

MAI SDA anchors versus Swellex bolts


The Atlas Copco MAI SDA is a unique bolting
solution for unstable ground conditions such as
sand, gravel, silt, and clays, and in soft to medium
fractured rock formations.
For projects facing such ground conditions, MAI
SDA self-drilling anchors should be considered as
the main productivity solution.
Atlas Copco Swellex rock bolts, which are
quickly and safely installed in rock not tending to
collapse, gives immediate support, speeding up
operations and boosting revenues. Over the past
two decades, the Swellex rock bolting solution has
become world famous as the simplest, fastest and
most reliable rock reinforcement technology available.

MAI SDA installation


The MAI SDA solution is designed for optimized
installation, tailored to the projects needs. By
drilling a hole in collapsing soil or loose rock, with
a sacrificial drill bit and a hollow rod, and after the
drilling operation injecting grout into the hollow
rod and surrounding cavity, makes it a top productivity solution.
MAI SDA manual installation

Swellex installation
The Swellex bolt is a folded steel tube, which is
inserted into a pre-drilled hole in the rock. Water
is blasted into the tube at high pressure, blowing
out the fold and expanding the tube into the exact
shape of the hole, adapting to every irregularity.
Bolt installation takes less than 30 seconds, and
provides full and immediate support along the
entire hole length, in ground conditions ranging
from the hardest rock to clay even non-cohesive
material.
