Atlas Copco gives you more of what you need!


Stockholm, Sweden, May 6, 2013: As mine and tunnel safety requirements have become more stringent, the Swellex rock bolt system became a preferred alternative, offering an environmentally safe solution with high efficiency and immediate support.

Now you can get the industry’s most rigorously tested rock bolt, with capacity and elongation suited to your project’s needs.

“There’s different environments in mining and tunneling. There are cases where the rock mass transfers very little energy into the bolt. And in such cases there is no need for a rock bolt that absorbs high energy, you just need a rock bolt that can reach peak load without having necessarily to give a lot of elongation in energy absorbency. The Spartan Line has been engineered for these environments,” says Daniel Misiano, Vice President Marketing -Consumables.

Since it’s introduction 30 years ago, the Swellex rock bolting system has become a standard in
mines and tunnels around the world.

“The Spartan line has been engineered for a specific environment to maximize cost effectiveness
and profitability. It is being manufactured using the same stringent manufacturing process, the
same quality control as other Swellex rock bolts that we offer today.”

Like all bolts in the Swellex system, the Swellex Spartan is easy to install for greater productivity,
and provides friction anchoring and mechanical interlocking for greater safety. Spartan comes
with the quality corrosion resistance for maximum longevity. The Spartan is a strong bolt.

The Swellex Spartan will be introduced at CIM, May 6, 2013.
