CR is one of the only leading mining technology companies in the world that develops all products through the use of scale testing.

Scale testing is a testing protocol that CR utilises where real-world scenarios are scaled into smaller machines to enable testing and validation of all CR product designs.

With scale testing, CR can test how a product works quickly and continually improve on the design. We know that our products work before they get to site, ensuring mine sites immediately experience improvements in productivity.

“Scale testing allows CR to perform many testing scenarios quickly and ensures a tested and refined product is released to the market so that mine site operations aren’t put at risk.

Traditionally if you wanted to make a bucket design change, there was potentially millions of dollars’ worth of downtime in manufacturing fabrication. With scale testing, CR can manipulate the exact pieces that we are looking to improve, saving time and money.” – Quintin Nienaber, General Manager of Product Management
