Sandvik Tools: designed to make every mining day better
Sandvik continues its mission to deliver high quality Rock Tools that provide the best productivity in the industry, all with the superior user experience for which Sandvik Rock Tools is known for.
New Top hammer tools for mine development, the innovative Sandvik Alpha 330 improves the service life of the current model by up to 15%, with up to 80% improvement vs. R32 models. The Alpha 330 is a patented product unique for Sandvik. The short thread design and hexagonal rods in the tool system result in a rigid, integrated power pack drill string with superior resistance to bending stresses, in addition to improved bit guidance and perfect energy transfer. The sturdy thread is well guided inside the bit skirt, offering high precision in collaring – even in complex rock formations and uneven surfaces.
Cutter picks featuring the XT grade tungsten carbide can cut materials up to 180 MPa (26,000 PSI). With Sandvik rock tools you cut hard and soft rock even faster, even better and more efficiently when battling tough conditions. The new RR321 rotary drill bit continues the development of the most comprehensive portfolio in the industry, which includes the RR220 (standard air), RR321 (premium air) and RR440 (sealed bearing). Combined with the drill string tools, the range makes Sandvik the only drilling tools supplier in the world with such a broad, yet technologically exceptional offering in the world. The RH460 hammer line is Sandvik’s latest, new high-performance DTH hammer family, providing high impact energy and drill performance to maximize productivity in variable ground conditions. The RH 460 hammer family will consist of 3.5”, 4”, 5”, 6” and 8” hammers. 4”, 5”, 6” hammers are expected to start shipping in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Cubex is set to introduce a new In-The-Hole (ITH) production drill at MINExpo. The drill delivers advances in comfort and safety for the operator, ease of use, a more rapid learning curve, and a platform for drilling automation. It has been developed through more than three decades of ITH drilling experience and maintains Cubex’s high build quality. See the new drill at booth 1475 in the North Hall. Sandvik is the sole global distributor for Cubex ITH underground drilling products.
