Flanders [1]

Flanders introduces its Ardvarc 4.0, which the company says is the world’s first fully automated multi-pass drill rig that incorporates the world’s first autonomous angle drill implementation.

AggMan_25TopRollOuts [2]Features include:

  • multi-pass and semi-pass automation
  • drill-hole and hole-angle accuracy
  • automatic drill string adding and racking
  • new human/machine interface (HMI)
  • new data collection
  • more modular hardware.

Ardvarc 4.0 is designed to align itself to within +/-1 degree of the design heading of the hole and automatically set the proper mast angle.
