DRILL RIG: New features for Atlas Copco FlexiROC T15 R

STOCKHOLM – Atlas Copco’s compact and highly versatile FlexiROC T15 R drill rig may be small, but the four-wheel drive rig has had a big impact since its launch in 2008. Now it’s been updated with a range of improvements that make it more useful and efficient than ever.

Designed for drilling 27 to 51 mm holes the FlexiROC T15 R is a vital piece of onsite equipment for construction, dimension stone quarrying as well as other demanding tasks such as bolt installations and boulder blasting.

New features include an extended feed of 3.66 m, a robust foot attachment, a 2.8 Cummins Tier 4 Final engine and a 2.4 GHz Bluetooth radio remote control unit. The rig has a long boom reach of 4,500 mm and the 360° rollover feed system enables holes to be drilled in practically any position. Not only that, it takes just a couple of minutes to re-pin the rig for either horizontal or vertical operation. The control system automatically adjusts impact and feed speed in proportion to rotation torque which means high productivity and smooth drilling even in soft formations.
