TIMi for inclined holes and TIM3D readiness is used for drilling vertical and inclined holes with a hole depth measuring. The system makes possible to retrofit full TIM3D system easy by adding just antennas and GPS receiver. The system has upgraded user interface with touch-screen function. Through the display its possible also to troubleshoot the system and initialize sensors.
The hole depth can be given as a bench height or directly as a hole depth. The system displays the drilled hole depth and the penetration rate and it alarms the operator/stops the drilling when the set depth is achieved. Inbuilt drilling memory contains counters as well. The counters hold three type of data:
• Cumulative data since the last reset of counters by user.
• Cumulative data since the last reset of counters by service personnel.
• Cumulative data through machine life time.
Following counters are included: amount of drilled holes, drilled meters, drilling time, percussion hours and average penetration rate.
The system also includes aiming unit and hydraulic cylinders with sensors. Inclination direction can be given by using directly blast direction or reference direction with the aiming unit
