Atlas Copco Introduces Swedish Advanced Mining Solutions to IES Forum of China Mining 2012
November 3, 2012. Atlas Copco’s Mining and Rock Excavation Technique brought its surface and underground core drilling rigs with high efficiency at China Mining 2012 in Tianjin, and also introduced Atlas Copco’s advanced innovative, highly efficient and safe mining solution to IES Forum.
More than 60 years has passed since “Swedish method” of drilling was invented, while unsafe mining can still be a part of reality today which we have to face. Safety in operation is the first priority, starting in the design processes in Atlas Copco mining equipment, and followed through in after market activities.
In order to “remove” as many personnel as possible from dangerous mining operations, the obvious way forward is to make mining operation as automation as possible, which means more safety in the mines for the future. Since computerized Rig Control System (RCS) was introduced in 1998 and stunned the market, Atlas Copco has led development in computerized and increasingly automated rock drilling. Computerized automation definitely improves drilling rate and drill steel economy. But there are many more benefits, such as faster fault detection, lower maintenance costs and enhanced rig availability.
Showed on China Mining 2012, Atlas Copco Boyles C6 and Boyles C8C surface core drilling rig and Diamec U6 underground core drilling rig are the good application examples of the advanced exploration technology. Featured by safety, high efficiency and flexibility, they are made to set a new level of user-friendly reliability.
