Stronger, Long-Lasting Rock Support Drill Rigs

Minimizing downtime is vital, and our rock support drill rigs are developed to ensure that the most common issues that can arise when drilling can be resolved quickly. With the gauge buttons of a drill bit exposed to axial forces, we developed the XT48 cemented carbide. Tough and able to handle axial forces with minimal risk of breakage, our cemented carbide has significantly higher resistance thanks to its stronger material. When the time comes for any wearable parts like this to be replaced, we can do this quickly; that’s why we have a global network of specialist service technicians that will assist when you need them.

Our parts and services provided through Sandvik 365 will provide around-the-clock support to ensure you can access exactly what you need to be up and running again. Safety solutions, upgrades, rebuild solutions and much more are available during your rock drill rigs’ life cycle.
