During production drilling operations, inaccurate feed positioning and an incorrect drilling angle can have serious consequences on the operational costs of an underground mine. It can cause:
• Oversized blocks
• Ore loss
The TMS DDS instrumentation allows the operator to control the drilling hole direction on Production Drills. It is used to accurately position the drilling feed at the correct angle (tilt and rotation), and displays hole depth, penetration speed and drilling pressures (percussion, feed, rotation and flushing).
Data collection is included.
A large, user-friendly, display clearly shows parameters to the operator. Instrumentation checks itself at every start to find possible faults in the system.
