Atlas Copco launches new compact drill


Atlas Copco has released its new radio remote control drill rig, the FlexiROC T20 R (Mark II).

"In response to requests from our customers around the world, upgrades have now been made making the new FlexiROC T20 R the best drill rig in its class of compact, radio remote controlled drill rigs," global product manager Marcus Leü said.

The machine features a completely new rig control system comprising electrical and hydraulic components, while remote control capabilities have also been installed.

Atlas Copco’s rig builds from proven technology in its FlexiROC T25 R & T30 R drills.

The drill features a new cylinder feed (BMH 2000) in three different lengths, reinforced drill steel support, new hose routing with three bulk heads, a front facing feed holder, and improved service and maintenance access.

“The new FlexiROC T20 R has now been equipped with the COP 1435 rock drill,” Atlas Copco added.

“It has almost 30 per cent higher impact energy and 30 per cent higher rotation torque than the previous model. With an impact power of 14 kW together with smooth cylinder feed action, the drilling performance has increased by up to 40 per cent.”
