Sandvik is introducing the new drilling tool system Alpha 360 – an improved and amplified version that complements the company’s best-selling system Sandvik Alpha 330. With a reinforced design, Alpha 360 can last twice as long as a standard thread in the industry. Its hole accuracy also enables higher productivity in tunneling and mine development.

 

The new Alpha 360 is developed to deliver unprecedented rock tools performance and at the same time boost productivity in the whole drill-and-blast cycle. “Alpha 360 is yet another example of our aim to provide customers with products that will maximize the output of their investments, says Robert Grandin, Product Manager for Underground Top Hammer, at Sandvik Rock Tools. “High drilling accuracy is crucial to ensure that the tunnel gets the desired direction and profile. Straight and parallel holes also improve the advance per blast.”

 

The Alpha 360, which is designed for Ø 48-51 mm hole sizes in face drilling and bolting, features a very strong thread design. The short thread on the round rod gives superior resistance towards bending stresses, improved bit guidance and excellent energy transfer. The sturdy thread is guided inside the bit skirt, which enables high precision collaring also in complex rock formations and against uneven surfaces. “As a leading supplier to the rock drilling industry, Sandvik continues to drive the technology forward,” says Robert Grandin. “We always offer a full drill string from shank adapter to bit, designed for excellent reliability, performance and longevity.”
