New high-speed rock drills from Epiroc
Company says its world-class rock drills have just got better with launch of new COP series
EPIROC say the world’s most-proven rock drills have just become even better with the launch of a new series of three high-speed rock drills, the COP SC16, COP SC19 and COP SC25, which have been developed using the company’s latest technology and feature several improvements.
According to Epiroc, the most important benefit is that, due to upgraded and enhanced components, they offer a recommended service interval of 800 impact hours with no sacrifice in drilling performance.
‘We know that our contractors want equipment with a long service life, and this is how we are meeting their expectations – 800 hours compared with the previous 600 hours is a big difference,’ said Ulf Gyllander, global product manager at Epiroc.
‘Moreover, a longer service life doesn’t only help decrease service costs – the unit will also have more uptime and produce more, which means lower total cost of ownership,’ he added.
The new series comes with optimized rock contact, while simultaneously protecting the rock drill from harmful energy recoils. Additionally, cleaner operation due to reduced wear on the boom and feed components offers further advantages.
‘This is a top machine with overall high performance – a reliable unit that you can count on day in and day out,’ said Mr Gyllander.
The new COP SC16 (pictured), COP SC19 and COP SC25 drill series models replace the COP 1600, COP 1800, and COP 2500 series models respectively.
The new rock drills have been developed to suit following drill rigs: SmartROC T35; SmartROC T40; SmartROC T45; FlexiROC T30 R Construction Edition; FlexiROC T30 R Quarry Edition; FlexiROC T35 R; FlexiROC T40 R; FlexiROC T35; FlexiROC T40; FlexiROC T45; PowerROC T35; and PowerROC T45.
