The upgraded rig, renamed Dino DC410Ri, offers significant improvements in electrical and mechanical reliability, 15 per cent higher tramming power and a large number of smaller but nonetheless important updates for improved reliability and productivity.
Dino DC410Ri is a major all-around upgrade from its predecessor the Dino DC400Ri, launched in 2014.
A compact machine for 51 to 76mm (2 to 3in) hole sizes, Dino DC410Ri continues to offer mobility and stability for contractors tackling cramped urban construction sites, as well as for demanding quarry and infrastructure applications. The remote radio control, 14kW RD414 rock drill, advanced i-series torque control system and up to 18m2 (193sqft) coverage area add up to a cost-effective and productive solution for demanding jobs.
While retaining the basic design of the original machine, Dino DC410Ri features a number of significant upgrades for improved reliability. Its entirely new electrical system responds to challenges with components such as I/O boards. Several mechanical details have been reinforced, including a steel-framed tramming support for the feed beam and ruggedised rod-handler arms.
The upgraded Dino DC410Ri offers enhanced mobility thanks to 15 per cent higher tramming power compared with the previous model. Other features contributing to excellent mobility include low tramming height, low centre of gravity and high ground clearance.
A range of new options available for Dino DC410Ri create even more possibilities to customise the rig for various applications. NoiseShield-DC is a simple and compact noise-reduction solution for Dino DC410Ri, offering up to a −7.5dB reduction in A-weighted sound pressure within a 16m radius of the drill rig. The isolation panels of this patent-pending system are easy and quick to install simply by replacing the standard mesh panels of the safety cage.
Contractors aiming for minimum set-up times can select the feed auto-aligning option, which maintains the alignment of the feed beam at the pre-set angle even if the position of the boom changes from one hole to the next. Water flushing can be a useful option for applications requiring optimal dust suppression, such as tunnelling jobs.
A tangible improvement likely to be appreciated by many operators is the new remote-control unit. It has redesigned joysticks for easier handling with work gloves on, the plastic wiring connectors have been replaced with metallic military-grade components, and the control unit is better protected against moisture leaks in tough, cold environments.
Another practical feature is the possibility to duplicate the drilling control display on an Android phone or tablet. The remote screen, attached to the remote-control unit, gives a perfect view of the drill rig alignment and displays the drilling and tramming parameters for easy and accurate control, even if the rig itself is on the bottom of a deep trench or close to the edge of a hazardous bench.
