UON’s innovative range of Australian designed and built mining equipment continues to evolve with the recent manufacture of the Next Generation UON IR System© with 5-tonne rated line pull. The patented UON bore installation and removal system is manufactured exclusively at UON’s production facility in Malaga, WA where the equipment can be trailer, truck, or skid mounted and is factory tested before delivery.
UON’s client required a trailer-mounted IR system for operations at their newly opened Iron Ore mine north-west of Tom Price in WA’s Pilbara region. The system was developed to client specification including an electrical cable reel capable of holding 200m x 150mm2. UON technicians will travel to site to facilitate specialised in-field training on the operation of the IR system.
The patented UON IR System© has been continually developed since its inception in 2012, with previous 3-tonne models now superseded by the new 5-tonne rated system. The UON IR System is the Complete Solution for bore installation and removal, delivering huge savings on CAPEX and OPEX.
