The Sandvick Group embraces names which will be familiar to anyone involved in tunnelling or handling rock. In addition to Sandvick rock tools, the company also includes names like Tamrock, Rammer and Broyt.
Sandvick Rock Tools will show its new CAPP line of drill bits for bench drilling. These have been developed engineered and manufactured using a new system which the company feels has resulted in a new world standard range.
Tamrock's Axera T tunnelling jumbos are equipped with the latest technology rock drills and, being built from modular components the range can offer the contractor a rig virtually made to measure.
The Tamrock Ranger drill has now become an industry standard, but the company has received requests for a cabless rig which can be used in extreme conditions. Tamrock has replied with the Scout 700 which offers large scale drilling coverage due to its turntable superstructure, and still maintains rig stability.
Rammer will be launching a new hydraulic hammer, and in addition will be offering sophisticated back-up services for its products. These will cover both the selection of the optimum model for the task in hand and a comprehensive after sales support package.
Information on the latest Toro mine truck, now undergoing testing in Colorado will be available as will news of the latest name to join the group, Broyt.
The company has acquired the rights to the machine which has built itself a strong reputation in the fields of tunnelling and quarrying.
