New for Hillhead 2024 – Vibraquipo on the EPC stand

Jun 18, 2024

The countdown is on for Hillhead 2024 (25-27 June), the biennial industry exhibition that EPC-UK and EPC Metrics looks forward to attending every two years. We have three new developments to showcase on the stand this year. You can catch up with Commercial Manager, Ryan Ward’s, previous Onsite overviews of Polerex and Rock on Ground Plus, which are two of those exciting new innovations.

Ryan now talks about the third, based around our recent merger with product specialist, Vibraquipo: 

“In January 2024 EPC-UK and EPC Metrics were delighted to confirm an enabling business partnership with Vibraquipo, a leading international manufacturer of vibration measurement instrument solutions for the quarrying, mining and tunnelling industries.”

Optimising blast performance 

“EPC Groupe has confidently relied on using Vibraquipo and Vibratesting equipment for years. Now, this exciting collaboration will further progress customers’ digitalization and data management strategies out in the field, as the equipment will support EPC’s VERTEX© platform in the drilling & blasting environment. This will allow users to upload, analyse and store information including vibration and air over-pressure from the quarry, and help optimise customers’ relevant blast performance and compliance.

“The Vibraquipo equipment and associated service options we’ll be talking about on the Hillhead stand can be managed, supplied and calibrated by EPC Metrics in the UK, the value-adding, technically advanced service we offer to customers as an extension of our established drilling & blasting solutions. Here’s more on what the vibration monitoring products can provide:”
