DRILLING: Aramine says compact DM091HDE ideal for narrow veins

Aramine’s miniDriller DM901HDE is designed to be at home in narrow vein mining.

FRANCE – The miniDriller DM901HDE is the most compact drill rig for underground mines, according to its manufacturer, Aramine.

Completing the company’s equipment range for narrow vein mines, the DM901HDE has a diesel engine for tramming and an electric motor for drilling.

The DM901HDE has a low center of gravity which gives an optimal stability and despite its narrowness, its two front stabilizers offer perfect drilling conditions. Given its excellent stability, this machine allows face and vertical drilling.

Aramine’s R&D department has selected carefully from existing technologies to develop this fully autonomous drill rig. Drilling with the DM901HDE only requires a 400-V electric connection and a water supply.

The miniDriller is designed with modular elements so that it can be easily assembled and disassembled in a mine. Only 1,050 mm wide, 1,900 mm tall and 7900 mm long, it sneaks wherever Aramine’s L130 and L150 miniLoader go. Indeed, this new machine is ideal for sections between 6 and 12 m2.

Thanks to the historical partnership between Aramine and Epiroc, we can offer an exclusive optional version with an Epiroc feed and drifter.

With its avant garde vision, Aramine is preparing a fully electric, battery powered version for 2020, with innovations at all levels of the machine.
