Sandvik launches new rotary blasthole drill

The latest rotary blasthole drill from Sandvik delivers a single-pass capacity of 21m/69ft, the longest single-pass mast in its class.

The DR416i is designed to improve efficiency and deliver dependable penetration in the world’s harshest mining conditions

Constructed for large diameter (406 mm/16 in) rotary drilling, the Sandvik DR416i is automation-ready and scalable.

The manufacturer describes DR416i as supplying the highest rotational torques and pulldown forces at the lowest possible operating cost.

It is also equipped with Sandvik’s Compressor Management System (CMS), designed to reduce fuel consumption and improve productivity.

“We continue to enhance our product offering to provide exceptional value to our customers,” Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology rotary drilling division president Dave Shellhammer said.

“In developing the latest addition to our iSeries family, we looked at our customers’ greatest challenges in the large-diameter drill space and developed a cost-effective, highly-efficient solution to solve those challenges.”
