STRAIGHTER HOLES = IMPROVED PRODUCTIVITY, SUSTAINABILITY AND EFFICIENCY

Reduced hole deviation is key to achieving greater productivity, longer tool service life, improved safety and ultimately lower operational costs.

Greater productivity

Less hole deviation gives more uniformed and balanced fragmentation to improve drilling productivity. A guide adapter can also decrease the number of holes, the amount of secondary blasting and the consumption of explosives.

Longer tools service life

Straighter holes place less bending and fatigue stresses on the drill string. In addition, longer service life reduces downtime and maintenance costs associated.

Improved safety

Greater drilling precision, less maintenance and replacement procedures, and less blasting needed all contribute to safer operations.
