Featuring updates is Atlas Copco's FlexiROC T15 R drill rig
Atlas Copco’s FlexiROC T15 R drill rig has been updated with new features to tackle a variety of applications.
The four-wheel drive rig, launched in 2008, is designed for drilling 27–51mm holes in construction, dimension stone quarrying, and other demanding tasks such as bolt installations and boulder blasting.
New features include an extended feed of 3.66m; a robust foot attachment; a 2.8 Cummins Tier 4 Final engine and a 2.4Hz Bluetooth radio remote control unit.
The rig’s boom reach is 4.5m, and the 360° roll-over feed system enables holes to be drilled in practically any position, while it takes a couple of minutes to re-pin the rig for either horizontal or vertical operation.
The control system automatically adjusts impact and feed speed in proportion to rotation torque for “high productivity and smooth drilling even in soft formations.”
Atlas Copco says that equipped with an advanced hydraulic rock drill from the COP 1020 range, excellent tramming capability and support legs, it can be used in rough terrain and in locations that are normally difficult to access.
Fuel consumption is kept to a minimum as the engine’s rpm can be adjusted from the remote control system.
