PYBAR enhances production drilling capabilities with three new rigs

October 4, 2017

PYBAR’s Drilling Division has gone from strength to strength in 2017 following a number of new contract wins for a variety of services including production drilling, cable bolting, ITH drilling, and steel casing installation.

To service this increased demand and further build our capabilities in this area, we have acquired three new production drills: a Sandvik DL421 – 15C, a Sandvik DL431 – 7C and an Atlas Copco Simba E7C.

New production drills.

Sandvik DL421 – 15C
The DL421 – 15C is a horseshoe (A frame) configuration with a 1560 drifter. It has full fan automation and is fitted with the Sandvik Optimine data system. Drill hole diameters range from 89mm through to 102mm (reaming to 203mm).

Sandvik DL431 – 7C
The DL431 – 7C has a boom mounted feed configured for either the HL710 or HL820 drifter and single hole automation. Drill hole diameters range from 76mm through to 102mm (reaming to 203mm). The rig has similar capabilities to our existing DL430 – 7C and Solo 7 – 7V drills.

Atlas Copco Simba E7C
The Simba E7C has a boom mounted feed, configured for either the 2550MUX or 3060MUX drifter, full fan automation and digital plan uploads and drill data downloading. Drill hole diameters range from 76mm through to 102mm (reaming to 203mm).

Our Drilling Division will continue to build on its production drilling capabilities and services as we continue to focus on our value delivery to clients.
