Atlas Copco has developed a new surface drill for dimension stone drillers.
The SpeedROC 2F is a versatile rig built for drilling marble, granite, sandstone, and limestone.
“The big advantage of this rig is its high productivity provided by a 360-degree coverage area, long boom reach, flexible drilling capacity, fast positioning and high tramming stability,” Atlas Copco said in a company statement.
“The all-round coverage saves time when positioning the rig while the long, rotatable boom is perfectly suited to both bench drilling and block dressing.”
It is equipped with two hydraulic rock drill and can be used for both vertical and horizontal drilling, while its four support legs provide increased stability even when operating at maximum capacity.
It can also be remote controlled, to increase safety for the operator, while a dust collection system gives it greener credentials.
SpeedROC 2F has a choice of tophammer rock drills, the DF 500X or DF 530X and a hole range of 28–45 mm.
