The main feature of this rig is the advanced global geopositioning system that allows the whole drilling process to be optimized and the quality of holes to be improved with much more accurate depths, delivering better cuts for bench drills.
The SmartROC features Auto RHS (Auto Rod Handling System), which is the automated rod handling system that allows rods to be added automatically until the defined depth is reached. This solution reduces drilling times and has a direct effect on productivity and the service life of drilling tools.
"This machine is much faster and stronger, movements requiring just one button do two, three functions that we used to have to do manually, now you just press one button down and the machine does practically all the work", says Victor Yepes, Drill Operator at Argos.
Another feature of this rig is the efficiency of its hydraulic system as well as its fuel consumption.
