RELIABLE AND ROBUST MAIN COMPONENTS
THE iDRILL AUTOMATION PLATFORM ADAPTING TO YOUR NEEDS
iDRILL DRILLING CYCLE FOR FULLY AUTONOMOUS OPERATION
New iDrill automation for Leopard™ DI650i complements existing automated drilling functionalities with several new features such as drilling stabilization, automated collaring, automated cleaning and detaching from hole. Result is an optimized iDrill drilling cycle where the operator only needs to monitor the process. The iDrill automation matches seamlessly with AutoMine® Surface Drilling to enable fully autonomous Leopard™ DI650i fleet operation from a control room.
OPTIMIZED CYCLE ENSURES CONSISTENT, QUALITY HOLES
The iDrill drilling cycle of Leopard™ DI650i is engineered to ensure consistent high-quality drilled holes. It supports the fleet operator by minimizing common drilling errors, such as hole inclination, depth and positioning errors. The intelligent sequences of the iDrill drilling cycle handle and optimally control the DTH drilling tools for best possible service life without compromising drilling performance.
The iDrill drilling cycle starts with automated positioning, where the TIM3D drill navigation system guides the rig to the correct spot according to the drill plan. Feed beam and boom are automatically positioned to the correct drilling angle. The drill rig is automatically stabilized and the feed beam is accurately aligned to match the drill plan to ensure high-quality holes.
The existing cycle has been upgraded with new features such as antijamming pullback monitoring, intelligent collaring sequence including suction head automatics and centralizer automatics to match the hammer and pipe size for optimal support while collaring. In full-power drilling, the iFlow control system automatically adjusts the air pressure and volume levels and iTorque drilling control system monitors the rotation torque and automatically optimizes the feed force to match the rock conditions.
The pipe handling system adds and removes pipes automatically. An intelligent hole finishing sequence eliminates any harmful tensile stresses due to inaccuracies and prevents dirt from entering into the DTH hammer. Finally, detaching from hole sequence makes the drill rig ready to move safely to the next hole.
The iDrill drilling cycle allows manual intervention and can be activated or deactivated at any stage of the cycle. In addition, the operator can add optional wait stages between automated sequences, if additional check-ups are needed for safety reasons or challenging drilling conditions, for example. After intervention, the cycle will commence automatically until the desired hole depth is reached and the hole sequence is finished.
ENJOY DRILLING IN NEW iCAB CABIN
New iCab cabin offers the best driller experience with excellent visibility to the drilling area. iCab is FOPS & ROPS certified with HEPA and optional HEPA H13 filter. It is also the most silent and ergonomic cabin in DTH drill rigs. All machine information is seamlessly integrated on one touch display. There is also room for the trainer or service technician behind the operator seat.

DATA IS THE KEY TO PERFECT HOLE
In addition to its intelligent drilling control system, Leopard™ DI650i offers solutions with GPS based navigation and data collecting from basic to advanced systems.
TIMi INCLINATION SYSTEM
TIMi angle-measurement system for vertical holes and depth measurement is a standard for Leopard™ DI650i. The system can be expanded with additional options for inclined holes, GPS-aligned holes, feed auto-aligning and TIM3D readiness. All different options are operated with modern touch-screen display, including automation and troubleshooting features. You can choose the system that matches your current needs and easily upgrade it, if necessary.
Sandvik TIM3D drill navigation system

Excellent boom reach, collaring height, feed drilling angles combined with tramming power of 168 kN and excellent stability ensure the best possible drilling coverage area in difficult terrain. These features make the Leopard DI650i an essential choice for different production and pre-split DTH drilling applications.
OUTSTANDING TRAMMING FORCE-WEIGHT RATIO AND STABILITY
SERVICEABILITY TAKEN TO THE NEXT LEVEL
DRILL FASTER AND SUCCEED HARDER
Built on our proven i-series intelligent drill platform and our scalable automation design the Leopard™ DI650i is the perfect match for our RH560 6” DTH hammer, making it uniquely productive while keeping fuel consumption and operating costs to a minimum.
The all-new RH560 hammer helps you to drill faster because of its improved air cycle. Less air is required, making the penetration rate higher. RH560 is your reliable and powerful drilling companion with proven Sandvik technology.
