ATLAS Copco Construction and Mining Australia will showcase the Pit Viper PV-275 multi-pass blasthole drill rig, high-productivity COP3038 rock drill and ROC D9 Silenced SmartRig, on Stand 316 at AIMEX 2007.
The Pit Viper PV-275 has a 75,000-lb bit load capacity, ROPS cab, 195ft depth capacity (via a 4-rod carousel with 40ft rods), and a cable feed system with automatic tensioning.
The 30kW COP3038 face drill uses new high frequency technology to achieve penetration rates of 5.3 m /min, with a hole range of 43-64 mm.
In a world first, the ROC Silenced SmartRig can work up to 1km closer to population than other similar rigs, and also has a Hole Navigation System that allows automated hole drilling after initial set-up.
