Atlas Copco launches direct-controlled rig for large tunnels in civil engineering projects
Safety, ergonomics and high productivity have been in focus when designing the Boomer XL3 D for users who prefer a traditional direct control system. The Boomer XL3 D has a modern, attractive design, and it also offers several innovations. The new rig will be on display at Bauma China at the end of November.
The control system’s hydraulics also provides improved precision and simplicity and together with the new ergonomic control panels this is advantageous for both safety and productivity. The easily accessed service points are also an important aspect of the ergonomic design.
The rig has a FOPS-approved canopy, which can also be fitted with a vertical lift of 1 100 mm, to ensure excellent visibility over the working area. The optional cabin offers a high degree of operator comfort with a noise level inside the cabin below 80 dB(A). In addition, the air-conditioning unit ensures a comfortable temperature level.
To reduce particle and nitrogen oxide emissions, Boomer XL3 D is equipped with an efficient Tier III engine.
–For increased productivity and precision, the rig is also prepared for the optional Feed Angle Measurement (FAM) 3. The system helps the operator to drill precisely according to plan, resulting in considerably less over- and underbreak and gives longer rounds, says Mathias Edhammer, Product Manager Face Drilling Rigs, Atlas Copco.
The Boomer XL3 D can be fitted with a wide range of powerful, reliable rock drills for different rock conditions, including the well-proven COP 1638, COP 1838 and the powerful COP 2238.
