Enjoy remarkable silence in iCab cabin
Operator ergonomics and low cabin noise has been the focus areas in developing this new iCab cabin. New user interface has been developed based on experience of several customer trials. Positive feedback has been received from good ergonomics and easy to use joysticks and control panels. In the new cabin, there is also room for a trainer behind the operator seat. Thanks to long and successful co-operation with VTT, Finnish Technical Research Center, Sandvik has been able to lower the noise emission into the level never seen before in this type of drill rigs.
The new Surface Drill Rig will be introduced and demonstrated at steinexpo for the very first time. We look forward to showing you its revolutionary features!
