Top hammer rods and tubes
For straightness and longer servicelife
Today´s rock drills generate almost unlimited impact power. We need to control that power and, most importantly, ensure that it is transmitted into the rock as efficiency, accurately and economically possible. That is the job of the rock drilling tool. With that in mind we continously work with research and development to ensure continously improvement of our products. Our rods and tubes are developed and designed to give you straighter holes with less deviation and longer service life.
Our Alpha 330 for tunneling with the new short thread design on the hexagonal and round rods in the tool system result in a rigid, integrated power pack drill string with superior resistance to bending process, improved bit guidance and perfect energy transfer. The sturdy thread is well guided inside the bit skirt, offering high precision in collaring - even in complex rock formations and against uneven surfaces.
Our series of +Range rods developed with focus on innovative solutions that provides safe operations, reduced production costs, increased reliability and enchanced productivity for our customers. With it´s new steel alloy, unique to Sandvik, it gives +Range rods increased resistance to wear. This enables the rod to run longer with the need for fewer rods to get the job done - saving both cost and drilling operation per blast hole as well as costs involved in overall logistics.
