Epiroc is releasing new long feed version of the class-leading SmartROC C50

March 25, 2024

The class-leading SmartROC C50 will now be available with a choice of two feeds, the standard feed or a long feed. This rig combines high penetration rates with superior hole quality – even in the most challenging conditions. 
A new long feed version of the SmartROC C50 is now available. The long feed enables this COPROD rig to deliver even more meters per shift by increasing drilling time and reducing the time changing rods. Additionally, less rod changing reduces wear on consumables and helps lower fuel costs. This makes this machine even more cost effective.

The SmartROC C50 is one of fastest, safest, and most efficient drill rigs available on the market. The well-known surface drill rig is a favored choice for contractors and mining customers who require both raw power and precision. This is due to the COPROD technology, which offers the unique combination of precision and speed. Together with the new long feed this rig will be beneficial to mining and quarrying operations all around the globe.

New long feed gives greater hole depth
The SmartROC C50 with a long feed can carry a 7.3 meter (24 ft) starter rod and 6 meter rods in the carousel, which increases the maximum hole depth to 37 meters (121 ft). There is also a significant increase in its single-pass capacity.

"We have taken this top class surface drill rig and made it even more appealing with this new long feed option. With its smart Rig Control System (RCS) and easy-to-use touch-screen, we are proud to call the SmartROC C50 a class-leading rig."
