Sandvik released the xSeries family of rotary and down-the-hole drills, which, the company reported, feature added intelligence and improved operator ergonomics, providing operators with the right balance of reliability and technology to drill the perfect hole safely. Highlights include a touchscreen interface for the Sandvik Automation Module for use of machine health monitoring systems, the components of the i-Series machine, and for improved user experience; Sandvik’s Compressor Management System Lite; an oversized driller’s window; bolt-on mast locks; and a swivel-enabled operator’s seat.
