Epiroc introduces blasthole drilling rig

The PV-270 XC series delivers a hole diameter range up to 311 mm. This is available in both the multi pass and single pass offering which provides a clean hole of 16.8 m and 18 m.

With the Epiroc Rig Control System, the PV-270 XC can be run with an operator on-board using options such as AutoDrill and AutoLevel – or it can be run with the operator off the drill with the optional BenchREMOTE package, enabling one operator to run one or multiple units. It provides a foundation to add new functionality and options later without a major rebuild of the machine. Autonomous drilling can be implemented with almost no human interaction with the drill.

“Since the first introduction of the Pit Viper 270 rig, Epiroc have successfully deployed over 500 Pit Viper 270 rigs in the mining environment,” said Heino Hammann, Product Line Manager, Blasthole at Epiroc Drilling Solutions.
