Major efficiency improvements for PowerROC D45
A longer feed beam, ROPS and FOPS certified cabin, and a more efficient power pack are just three big improvements to the upgraded PowerROC D45 surface drill rig which Epiroc is about to launch.
"We have done several important updates which will give our customers a more efficient – and also a more convenient – operation", says Wei Wen Xu, Product Company Business Line Manager at Epiroc.
The updated PowerROC D45 comes with a new Cummins engine. The updated engine together with a more efficient hydraulic system, where the piston pumps ensure high efficiency, has a positive effect on fuel saving and will lower the total cost of ownership.
Another major benefit which will boost productivity is the longer feed beam.
"The longer feed beam is equipped with 4 meter rods. This reduces time for coupling and uncoupling which provides high productivity in the daily operations", says Wei Wen Xu.
The new version of PowerROC D45 also comes with several updates in the cabin. The rig is equipped with a FOPS and ROPS certificated cabin, including a safety switch under the seat. Ergonomic design within the cabin also gives the operator a good working space – and with joystick controls the PowerROC D45 delivers a comfortable all-round drilling operation.
"The PowerROC D45 drill rig is known for its easy operation. With the improvements we have done within the cabin – the experience for the operator will be even better than before", says Wei Wen Xu.
By using direct control, the PowerROC D45 is easily operated and maintained. Less components eases troubleshooting and improves reliability and service. The proven Epiroc technology, together with low initial investment, lead to a profitable drilling operation.
The reliable and robust PowerROC D45 is developed for limestone and cement quarries, open pit mines and aggregate quarries. The PowerROC D45 is designed to provide easy maintenance as well as high reliability – the result is a safe and comfortable operation.
