The Atlas Copco Simba W6 C rig available for new markets
After having proven itself at LKAB, in Sweden, one of the world’s leading producers of iron ore products, Atlas Copco is now releasing the production drilling rig Simba W6 C to the market. Patrik Ericsson, Product Manager Simba rigs, Atlas Copco, says: “Our commitment to the customer is to provide the best possible tool for their application. Working together with a leading mining company such as LKAB has proven that high demands create great solutions.”
The Simba W6 C rigs are equipped with a rig control system which optimizes the performance for in-the-hole hammer (ITH) applications. The Simba W6 C rigs offer unattended drilling in full fan automation, enabling the operator to supervise several drill rigs at the same time. In cases where manual operation is preferred, the rig’s cabin offers a good working environment with air conditioning, vibration dampening and noise insulation.
An important feature is the water pump system which gives high efficiency, low water spillage and low overall cost. An air venting system ensures long pump life, and the pump pressure control optimizes hammer efficiency and life length.
