The SmartROC D65 down-the-hole drill rig brings the future of mining within your reach today. Isn’t it time you gave your operation the chance to profit from the added intelligence of the SmartROC D65? Incorporating cutting-edge automation technology, the SmartROC D65 has both the intelligence and power to drill production blast, pre-split and buffer holes. Reverse circulation options are also available for in-pit grade control. Maximize drilling time with the Hole Navigation System (HNS). This intelligent option enables a faster setup, so you can perform high-precision drilling in any weather conditions. Minimize your production costs by optimizing drilling and blasting, improving fragmentation and reducing the quantity of explosives needed. HNS removes the need to both manually mark and survey hole positions. This greatly improves both efficiency and safety on the bench.

Revolutionize your mining operation

SmartROC D65 shares its intelligent platform with Epiroc Pit Viper machines. When combined with the Surface Manager tool, this common communication platform enables total fleet management and operation control. Machines feed information directly into the worksite’s wireless network. The platform is based on the IREDES standard.

+ A rig which drills on its own

The SmartROC D65 is highly automated and drills the holes on its own.
It adds and then extracts rods automatically when the desired depth is
reached. The SmartROC D65 is highly consistent and is less dependent on the operator. Consumables wear out at a slower rate thanks to the auto rod handling system and overall stress on the entire machine is reduced. The extra precision in drilling gives optimal blast results and increases safety. The SmartROC D65 significantly raises quality in the whole operation.

+ Self-diagnostic capabilities

The SmartROC D65 features an ingenious self-diagnostic system to help
track down problems quickly and effectively to keep downtime to a minimum. However, the rig has been designed to be tough and dependable. The electrical system features a reduced number of cables for example – this reduces problems and makes troubleshooting much easier.

+ Operate multiple rigs remotely

With the BenchREMOTE option, one person can safely control up to three rigs simultaneously from up to 100 meters away which dramatically increases operator productivity. In combination with the Hole Navigation System (HNS), the BenchREMOTE removes the need for operators and surveyors to work in hazardous areas.
