Drilling straight and narrow
The Sandvik 2711 class of drills are simple and safer to operate with robust components and provide an excellent performance-to- ownership cost ratio.
In keeping with the requirements of specialist mining companies as well as drill and blast contractors who need safer, productive mobile rigs for use in narrow-vein and other confined areas, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology has launched a new family of narrow-vein drills. The Sandvik 2711 class of drills are simple and safer to operate with robust components and provide an excellent performance-to- ownership cost ratio.
Selective mining methods and small tunnel developments often enable more economic ore extraction, and control the dilution when ore is distributed in narrow veins typically less than two to three metres in width.
The drills are equipped with Sandvik’s fleet data monitoring systems, enabling mines and tunnelling contractors to improve fleet performance and management. The series consists of three drill types using a common platform covering different applications: namely, development drilling with Sandvik DD2711, rock support bolting with Sandvik DS2711 and longhole production drilling with Sandvik DL2711 and Sandvik DL2721.
