New machines deliver productivity, sustainability

Pit Viper 291
Epiroc’s Pit Viper 291 will make its debut at MINExpo 2021. The Pit Viper 291 is designed to tackle larger diameter drilling in soft to medium ground conditions in both rotary and DTH drilling. The new addition to the industry-leading Pit Viper range is capable of 6 3/4 inches to 12 1/4 inches (171 mm to 311 mm) diameter holes with a 55 foot (16.76 m) clean hole single pass with the drill bit above the table. Also available with a 59-foot (18 m) option.

The Pit Viper 291 offers more than 100 different options to configure the perfect drill rig for your specific application. With Epiroc’s Rig Control System (RCS), the Pit Viper 291 can be configured with scalable automation features, including fully autonomous drilling.  

SmartROC D65 XLF
The new generation SmartROC D65 XLF is packed with smart features such as automated drilling and rod handling and is equipped with an intelligent fuel-saving system that reduces fuel consumption by 20 percent compared to the FlexiROC D65 drill rig. The D65 also emits 34 percent lower CO2 emissions per drilling meter than the comparable FlexiROC rig.

The SmartROC D65 XLF is available in three feed beam sizes to carry 5-, 6- or 8-meter pipes, and has the capacity to drill down to a depth of 56 meters. When using 8-meter pipes, it is possible to drill 16-meter production holes with just one rod adding.

Boomer M20 with Battery Option
Epiroc’s new Boomer M20 was unveiled in 2021. The worlds’ first face drill rig with internal hydraulics, the Boomer M20 is designed to minimize unplanned stops for hose repairs and maximize uptime and performance even in the toughest conditions.

High precision and performance are ensured with on-board automation features, tele-remote capabilities and digital drill plans which give higher reliability and quality of the full drill cycle. The Boomer M20 comes with a battery-electric driveline option. With the on-board charger, charging automatically happens while connected to the grid for drilling.

Boltec M10 and E10 Bolting Rigs
MINExpo 2021 will be the first opportunity to learn more about Epiroc’s next generation rock reinforcement rigs - Boltec M10 and E10. The Boltec E10 will be showcased at MINExpo for an up-close view.

Designed for increased productivity and quality bolt installation, the rigs feature a new operator control panel, better visibility, improved operator ergonomics and reduced noise levels. The Boltec M10 and E10 can handle different types of bolts, mesh and installation methods, as well as optional battery-electric driveline or diesel hydraulic, radial and face bolting capabilities and extension drilling capability. Optional tele-remote operation is available as well as single bolt auto installation with self-drilling anchor bolts (SDA) in combination with pumpable resin.
