During production drilling operations, inaccurate feed positioning and an incorrect drilling angle can have serious consequences on the operational costs of an underground mine. It can cause:
• Oversized blocks
• Ore loss
TIS is basic CAN-bus based instrumentation for medium and NV long-hole top-hammer drills.
It is used to accurately position the drill feed at the correct angle (tilt and rotation). On the DL331, it displays hole depth, penetration speed and drilling pressures (percussion, feed, rotation and flushing). Data collection is included. Instrumentation is equipped with side lasers mounted to the carrier. The lasers are used to position the carrier at the drill-fan location.
A large, user-friendly display clearly shows the operator the parameters. Instrumentation checks itself for every start to find possible faults in the system.
Collected data is stored in the display unit. Data is in ASCII format comma separated and data recovery is done via USB.
