At Austin, we want to help make your job easier and more profitable.
Since 1833, we've worked hard to earn a reputation as a leader in the development of customer-driven products.
We're proud of that tradition. Today, our Red Diamond research facility continues the tradition. Every Austin product developed at our R&D laboratories must pass a stringent quality assurance testing program before it is introduced into the market.
Our technical services group assists our customers around the world,
providing state-of-the-art analysis for a variety of blasting needs.
We developed QED®, a computer-based virtual blasting program used
to forecast fragmentation, damage, muckpile shape and vibration
levels. It also helps our customers save time and money by modeling
different blasting situations.
Austin utilizes a fleet of mobile tech vans, staffed with trained Austin explosives engineers. These vans are equipped with blasting analysis tools providing superior technological services at the blast site. These services include: laser profilers, borehole deviation measurement tools, continuous VOD equipment, seismographs and high-speed cameras.
