The small, compact design of the Diamec 232 underground core drilling rig for narrow spaces makes it ideal for use in narrow tunnels or in galleries. Quick and easy to set up, the Diamec 232 core drilling rig’s mechanized rod handling, hinge-mounted rod holder, and rotation unit mean flexible, efficient drilling.
The Diamec PHC 4 is a compact and powerful rig that is ideal for both underground and surface drilling. It can be fitted with a long or short feed frame and wire line, making it ideal for both conventional and wire line drilling. Using A-size ITH tools, the rig can drill as deep as 900 meters. The push-equals-pull feed cylinder allows for both uphole and downhole drilling at maximum capacity, day-in and day-out.
The Diamec PHC 6 is a powerful and flexible machine. It’s available with various feed lengths, standard and deep hole feed cylinders and three different rotation heads. The rig can be configured to serve a large variety of drilling applications. The Diamec PHC 6, in common with the other Diamec rigs, is fitted with a sychronized rod holder and chuck, making it impossible to drop rods because of human error.
The Diamec PHC 8 is the most powerful exploration rig of its size currently available. Like the rest of the Diamec range, it’s well suited to both surface and underground operations. The rig is equipped with a robust feed frame fitted with a direct-acting hydraulic telescopic cylinder. A chainless drive provides an equal push and pull force. This force enables an extended depth capacity for holes with a drill angle of greater than 45°, eliminating the need to re-pin the feed cylinder.
The Diamec Smart 4 is compact and powerful for its size as well as easy to set up. Ideal for both underground and surface drilling, it can be equipped with a long or short feed frame and wire line equipment. The “push-equals-pull” feed cylinder also allows for maximum capacity for uphole and downhole drilling. A unique positioner system facilitates movement of the feed frame through 180 degrees. With the aid of levers, the synchronized dual hydraulic cylinders move the feed frame from vertically downwards all the way up to vertically upwards – and there’s no need to move the wire line winch. This ensures exact lining up to existing holes. A turntable is also available for easier horizontal adjustment.
The Diamec Smart 6 is equipped with an advanced Rig Control System which enables automatic drilling from a safe distance. From the touch screen on the remote control panel, drilling parameters are easily set and the monitored. The Diamec Smart 6 can be equipped with a state of the art rod handling system that relieves the operator and eliminates many of the hazardous operations in the drilling process. The rig’s positioner makes it possible to drill in any direction and the modularized design enables you to select the right configuration for your operation.
Diamec Smart 8 has a versatile design that makes it ideal for most underground core drilling applications. The sophisticated positioner and turntable makes it easy to reach desired drilling position and angle without any adjustments. The Diamec Smart 8 is equipped with an advanced Rig Control System (RCS) where most of the operations can be performed automatically. The protecting safety guards protect the operator from moving parts and all operations are performed from an easy to use control panel. The Diamec Smart 8 can also be equipped with a unique rod handling system that offers complete hands free rod handling. Adding and removing of drill rods, inner tubes and core barrels are completed by the rod handler.
