Sandvik has acquired privately-owned Inrock, a supplier of rock drilling tools and services for Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) in North America. Headquartered in Houston, TX, Inrock is a market leader in pilot hole bits, reamers, guidance systems, accessories and services for the premium maxi rig segment within HDD.
As the next level of EU emissions regulations comes ever closer, manufacturer Sandvik has chosen Volvo Penta as the ideal provider of Stage V solutions for its mining equipment. With some of the toughest working conditions in confined areas, underground mining has many physical aspects to consider and more requirements than most industries for stringent rules on emissions.
Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology introduces its new Double TriSpec tool, which is intended for use in extremely abrasive asphalt milling conditions. In road milling, the greatest cause of tool failure is known as body wash – the premature wearing away of the steel body that surrounds and supports the vital brazed-carbide insert in each of the tools on the milling drum. When body wash occurs, the tool’s steel body becomes vulnerable to failure, and the tool must be changed long before the carbide tip has been fully utilized – resulting in downtime, lost production and higher labor costs.
Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology will be located in the Silver Lot, booth S5128, during CONEXPO-CON/AGG, March 7-11, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada, to learn about new developments in Mineral and Ground Tools for mining, trenching and road planing. Sandvik’s latest generation of patented carbide grades, manufactured using an innovative process technique with completely new raw materials, has made it possible to create new, extra-coarse, super-tough alloys with perfectly uniform grain structure. The benefit is that the tip’s material grade can be better matched to hard rock and soft rock applications.
The new Commando DC130Ri – a rubber tired compact size top hammer drill rig – is the latest addition to Sandvik Construction’s surface drilling product offering. The new machine includes a large number of upgraded features developed through consultations with customers, while the foundation of the unit is based on the series of drill rigs launched in 1988. It is in fact the years of experience that guarantee a versatile, highly productive drill rig combined with intelligence and top-rated mobility.
Sandvik Construction has launched the new HX900 wear segments; bars, buttons and runners. HX900 wear segments have long wear life on and maintain the original shape of vital equipment surfaces on, for example: crushers, loader buckets, chutes, excavators, rock box edges, and on weld on hammer tips. This means fewer stops, lower maintenance and operating cost, and more time for production.
Sandvik will be taking advantage of Hillhead 2016 to highlight the total solutions nature of their product ranges. This year will see a focus on mobile crushers and screens, as well as recent developments from Customer Services. Additionally there are a number of product launches planned, as well as live demonstrations in front of the stand.
