Rock bolt breakage detection!

Updated: Nov 22

ThingWave has been researching in the development of new methods to detect breakage (i.e. rupture) on metal bars such as rock bolts or cable bolts. Our new technology allows us to monitor and report breakage events in real-time.


The use of this technology can be applied to mining (reinforcements, metal meshes, rock bolts, cable bolts, etc.), construction (building structures), critical structures like bridges, dams, tunnels, ) etc.

Our novel method for detecting if a rock bolt has been severed into two parts can be used to send immediate alarms to geotechnical staff and mine engineers so that the proper actions can be taken.
