Sandvik launched the DR416i Rotary Blasthole Drill, which delivers a single-pass capacity of 21 meters (m) or 69 ft, the longest single-pass mast in its class, the company reported.
Constructed for large-diameter (406 mm or 16 in.) rotary drilling, the drill is automation-ready, scalable, and supplies the highest rotational torques and pulldown forces at the lowest possible operating cost, Sandvik reported. The company’s Compressor Management System (CMS) comes standard and is designed to reduce fuel consumption and improve productivity.
