Atlas Copco launches hydraulic underground handheld rock drill aimed at large depths
The new hydraulic underground handheld rock drill-system (HRD100) is one of the most powerful underground handheld rock drills on the market. The smart power pack monitors all vital functions and can compensate for pressure changes automatically.
THE HRD system consists of the rock drill (RD100), the power pack (PP100) and a selection of water pusher legs. All hoses and cables are included.
The HRD100 features a five-step water adjustment to help the operator use the right amount of water for each step. And when the drilling stops, the flow stops automatically.
“We really made an effort to provide high drill rates at low operational cost. But it is equally important to create a system that save the operators energy by being light and reliable”, says Oleg Korobotchkine the product line manager.
Working underground is hard work, but thanks to one-handed operation and carrying handles, the HRD-system makes it easier.
The system also monitors oil volume and compensates for pressure differences. That allows you to work with the PP100 at a 45° angle, without power loss. Simple tools make it easy to top-up hydraulic oil in the mine.
