Epiroc SmartROC T40 Drill Rig is the most fuel efficient drill rigs in the world. They show great performance even under the toughest drilling conditions.

Built with the operator in mind, an ergonomic user interface makes drilling safer, faster and more effective. Not only are these rigs easier to operate and more productive, but they ensure the lowest cost per cubic meter produced by any comparable rig
in their hole range. We have put SmartROC T40 to test. Based on the result there is no doubt – SmartROC T40 does not compromise on productivity

Main benefits

nor hole quality. It truly is the world champion of fuel efficiency.

Epiroc SmartROC T40 Drill Rig drilled 100 meters in less than two hours (1 h 53 min) with excellent hole quality with 90 % hole straightness while only consuming 34.5 liters of fuel. This gave a fuel consumption of 18.43 l/h and 0.35 l/m which is a solid indicator – SmartROC T40 can really perform under pressure.

Epiroc SmartROC T40 Drill Rigs can be equipped with a hole navigation system (HNS) as an option, enabling drill pattern navigation via GNSS receivers. HNS manages hole position, inclination, correct aiming and the required hole length as defined in the prepared drill plan. The result is a decrease in the drill and blast cost per cubic meter produced.

+ Fuel efficiency

The entire system is designed to minimize energy losses. The operator can adjust the flushing air volume and the dust collector fan speed according to need so that both deliver only what is necessary for the best performance. Engine and compressor speed are self-adjusting according to demand. Three variable hydraulic pumps help lower engine speed during none-drilling time and tramming. Further, an automatic cooler fan control is standard.

+ Operator in focus

The value of technology is directly related to how easy it is to use. These rigs integrate advanced technology with operator ease-of-use and safety. Inside the cleanly designed and comfortable cabin, the operator has full control over an efficient drilling cycle using two multifunction joysticks and an icon-based instrument panel. These rigs are equipped with an automatic rod adding system, enabling them to drill preset hole length without operator interaction. This improves on the lifespan of consumables.

+ Improved serviceability

Compared to similar rigs on the market, SmartROC T35 & T40 have 50% less hoses and 70% less couplings reducing the risk of leakage. Hydraulic valves and electric modules are distributed and positioned at the location where they function, allowing for easier access to components. Compared to previous generation rigs, the hydraulic tank is 65% smaller for more space and easier service access. The machines have double hose drums on the feed as standard.
