The D50 and D55 are the latest drill rigs to join Atlas Copco’s SmartROC series.
Both drills are rugged rigs, enhanced with the latest technology to effectively tackle a wide variety of demanding jobs with optimized power and precision.
“All the rigs in our SmartROC series represent intelligent innovation, and our newest SmartROC D50 and D55 rigs are no exceptions,” said Mattias Hjerpe, global product manager at Atlas Copco. “They have the brains and brawn to go the distance and keep on going.”
The D50 and D55 drill rigs are powered by low-emission engines, which can 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 effective penetration.
This allows for lower fuel consumption and less wear on components for greater longevity. Automatic rod handling and uniform feeding also provide higher productivity and efficiency on site, according to the company.
The D50 is designed for precision drilling of holes with a diameter of 3.5 in to 5.125 in.
The SmartROC D55 is specialized for holes with a slightly larger diameter of 3.5 in. to 6 in. and for depths of 148 ft. 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.
