Intelligent, efficient drill rig

It features a folding boom system, aluminium profile feed beam, hydraulic cylinder feed and a carousel-type rod handling system, with 6 + 1 rods.
The 15-tonne unit is powered by a 168kW, turbo-charged Tier 3 or Tier 4 Caterpillar C7.1 ACERT engine at 2200 rpm and features an Atlas Copco OIS K-36-C111 GD screw compressor, with a maximum working pressure of 10.5 bar and free air delivery of 153 litres per second.

Epiroc’s rig is fitted with the rig control system, which lowers fuel burn and can be optioned with Measure While Drilling (MWD), Hole Navigation System (HNS), silencing kit and ROC Manager software for data analysis.

The HNS in particular manages hole position, inclination, correct aiming and the required hole length (as defined in the prepared drill plan) via the global navigation satellite system.
