First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
Sandvik Construction’s latest addition to the down-the-hole drill range, the RH460 hammer, continues the company’s extensive portfolio of rock tools.
Swedish drilling company company, Nibu Borr, says it is “enjoying the benefits of using the RH460 hammer.”
Established in 1979, the company has developed an excellent reputation for its work on a range of applications, and due its success with the RH460, it has started testing other Sandvik’s drill bits.
Daniel Knutsson, head of Nibu’s well drilling, says success in the drilling business depends on two main factors: “Your experience and your equipment are your livelihood, so you need to be sure you have products you can depend on without question. You have to get it right from the start. The right equipment set-up is crucial, including key parameters such as rotation speed.”
The new Sandvik RH460 series of hammers is now available in 4,5,6 and 8inch, with all versions being designed to utilise bits with generic shank types. The 5,6 and 8inch hammers are also available in heavy-duty versions.
