Compact core drill rigs

Sandvik compact core drills

Sandvik DE100 series has been engineered to meet the toughest demands in underground mineral exploration. Sandvik DE100 series is also well suited to surface applications where a compact core drill is required. The modular design enables high flexibility of our compact drills to meet our customers expectations.

Sandvik DE100 series drills are used on every continent in a variety of applications. The central focus of the design is on underground diamond core drilling for exploration and production applications. These compact drills are also used for surface applications such as dam reinforcement and heliportable applications.

All models in the range are built on the same principle and share many of the same major components. Exploration drilling can be very demanding especially in remote areas or sub-zero temperatures. That’s why we only use components that have been thoroughly tested, our Sandvik DE100 series rigs feature design characteristics that ensure our rigs are simple to maintain to minimize downtime.

Sandvik DE151 is the most powerful H size underground drill rig in the Sandvik DE100
 series. Boasting a unique combination of size and capability, it features the highest feed and pull capacity in its class and in relation to its weight and size.

When you need deeper and larger holes the Sandvik DE142 is your solution. The Sandvik DE142 is for customers that prioritize performance when underground core drilling or require high torque drilling applications.

Our Sandvik DE140i is the next generation of underground compact core drills, providing greater productivity with the latest control system that controls and monitors all system functions.

Sandvik DE140 is the mid range of our underground core drill rigs. The feed and pull force is 9.4 t and includes an innovative feed system directly coupled to the hydraulic cylinder, this has improved safety by removing feed chains from the feed system.

Sandvik DE130 is the most cost effective drill in the DE100 series, designed for underground core drilling applications. Through continuous development with our customers, Sandvik have redesigned, modified and improved the Sandvik DE130 over the years to become the versatile model it is today.

Sandvik DE130 has proven its performance in a range of applications that include underground core drilling, dam reinforcement, geotechnical drilling for tunnel boring and surface exploration.

Sandvik DE110 is the most compact member of our DE100 series. Designed as a portable drill for 46 mm (1 ¾ in) or A-size exploration, grade control and grout-hole drilling. Sandvik DE110 is also well-suited for rock or concrete sampling with a maximum hole size of 116 mm (4 ½ in) to depths of 30 m (100 ft). This drill will deliver you equally reliable results in both surface and underground applications.
