Atlas Copco launches new dimension stone drill rig

Marble, granite, sandstone and limestone are tough challenges for the average drill rig, but Atlas Copco has said its new solution makes the job faster and less costly. Atlas Copco's SpeedROC 2F is a robust and versatile drill rig specially designed for the dimension stone industry.

According to the company, the big advantage of the rig is its high productivity provided by a 360-degree coverage area, long boom reach, flexible drilling capacity, fast positioning and high tramming stability.

The all-round coverage saves time when positioning the rig, while the long, rotatable boom is suited to both bench drilling and block dressing.

Equipped with two hydraulic rock drills, the SpeedROC 2F can be used for both vertical as well as horizontal drilling, and has four support legs giving stability even when using the rig at its maximum capacity.

Regional product manager Maurizio Frencia said: "SpeedROC 2F has come at a very important time for the dimension stone industry, and we believe it will play a key role in the ongoing effort to boost productivity and reduce costs.

"Not only that, our genuine parts and service solutions enable SpeedROC 2F owners to strike the optimum balance between productivity, availability and operational cost."

SpeedROC 2F comes with a choice of top-hammer rock drills, the DF 500X or DF 530X, and a hole range of 28-45 mm.
