Every Mincon product starts life as an idea on paper, however it only becomes a reality when the raw materials start taking shape.

Until recently, the prototype components for products in development were manufactured on the same production line as commercial products. Today, Mincon’s prototype components are manufactured at a bespoke prototype factory for research and development. It’s at this facility where a highly experienced, full-time team has dedicated lathes and mills to rapidly develop high-quality components for all prototype work and once-off projects.


Mincon has earned a reputation as The Driller's Choice thanks to its comprehensive range of hard-rock drilling solutions, which it supplies to markets across the world. However, Mincon's rock drilling expertise isn't just in the design and manufacturing of its class-leading tools.

Each of our regional customer service centres has highly experienced mining and drilling engineers, who are experts in their field.
