Product description

The SmartROC D65 is built to face the toughest of conditions. It's loaded with intelligent features that will improve your operations, increase safety, and boost productivity. This rig is constantly evolving since its introduction in order to ensure that your investment delivers increased production and profitability shift-after-shift.

The efficient SmartROC D65 consistently delivers high-quality blastholes with accuracy and precision. It is loaded with smart features such as automated drilling and rod handling. The extra long feed option with 8 m pipes makes it possible to drill 16 m production holes with just one rod-adding. It's also possible to drill 229 mm (9 in) holes thanks to the power of the COP M7 hammer. 

All these features and flexibility are packed in a rig which is economical to run due to the intelligent control of the compressor and engine rpm. The SmartROC D65 also uses 300 liters less hydraulic oil than previous versions and features fewer hoses and pumps. This helps to further reduce costs and makes servicing easier, while increasing sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of the rig. The SmartROC D65 is controlled via an advanced Rig Control System (RCS) displayed on a touch screen inside the comfortable, air-controlled FOPS and ROPS-certified cabin. It presents everything from drilling parameters to real-time Measure While Drilling (MWD) data. 

A SmartROC rig from Epiroc has the potential to significantly raise quality across the whole operation.
