Say hello to more meters per shift – meet powerful SmartROC T30 R, a smart rig for smarter operators

April 24, 2024

SmartROC T30 R

Epiroc is now launching SmartROC T30 R, a powerful, surface radio remote drill rig, built on the same flagship platform as newly released SmartROC T25 R. The construction and quarrying rig is equipped with the Epiroc Rig Control System (RCS), which enables the highest technology and automation level within the segment. Automated features together with 19 kW drilling power, an excellent coverage area and brilliant terrainability, makes the T30 R the perfect companion, providing the operator with more drilled meters per shift.      
New SmartROC T30 R is now joining little sister SmartROC T25 R, both built on the same flagship platform for surface drill rigs. The powerful model with 19 kW drilling power, developed for construction and quarrying, will provide operators with the highest technology and automation level within its segment, making everyday life easier for the operator.  

"With impressive drilling power, this rig can approach big and demanding projects with ease. Compared to the versatile little sister SmartROC T25 R with 14 kW, the SmartROC T30 R with its 19 kW can work in additional environment’s, contributing to expand the options for this flagship platform."

Marcus Leu ,Global Product Manager, Epiroc Surface division.

Rig Control System (RCS) enables outstanding efficiency and control over the operation
SmartROC T30 R is equipped with RCS hardware and software, facilitating onboard automation solutions. An automated rod handling system allows to add drill rods manually or automatically to reach the desired hole depth. This solution supports sustainable and consistent operations and increases average productivity. The RCS also enables access to the Epiroc developed Hole Navigation System (HNS), which ensures the highest quality of drilled holes, and makes your operation a great deal safer and easier. The HNS technology reduces the amount of explosives, as well as improves fuel efficiency – contributing to a reduced environmental footprint. 


Exceptional coverage area leads to high efficiency

The SmartROC T30 R offers a 45/45 boomswing, that combined with a 5.7 m boom system gives the rig a coverage area of 24 m². These features are matched with a rotation unit which provides 360° feed swing and a boom geometry that enables it to drill right next to the machine. This gives the SmartROC T30 R an excellent coverage area. The rig will have the highest efficiency in the segment thanks to its coverage area stability and drilling performance.


Excellent terrainability features

A low center of gravity, steel crawler tracks with wide spacing, together with a boom system with good maneuverability, gives the SmartROC T30 R excellent terrainability qualities. The well-balanced rig provides the operator with a safe work environment and improved productivity.

"The combination of great terrainability, large coverage area and the powerful COP SC19 HF, makes the rig outstanding and suitable to manage even the most challenging projects. Together with the Rig Control System that support the operation with automation features and helpful drilling logs, the rig can deliver terrific productivity."
