Atlas Copco has announced the addition of two new models to its Smartroc drill rig range.
The company said that the D50 and D55 are rugged rigs are fitted with the latest technology to enable them to effectively tackle a wide variety of demanding jobs with optimal power and precision.
The new models are versatile rigs powered by low-emission engines, which can cleverly adapt their output to the task at hand at all stages of production. The Rig Control System (RCS) in these rigs allows for intelligent control of engine RPM and air compressor load for more effective penetration with lower fuel consumption and lesser wear on components for greater longevity. Automatic rod handling and uniform feeding also provide for greater productivity and efficiency on site.
The Smartroc D50 is designed for precision drilling of holes with a diameter of 90mm to 130 mm, while the Smartroc D55 is specialized for holes with a slightly larger diameter of 90mm to 152mm for depths down to 45m while more shallow holes can be drilled with a larger diameter. The Hole Navigation System from Atlas Copco is an intelligent option for Smartroc rigs for fast and accurate collaring and drilling to the desired depth and inclination.
