Quotes

Importantly "the silver mine it was rebuilt for is getting an updated, as-new development drill for around 70 per cent of the cost of a new machine" the company said
"Just a few years ago, a drill rig of this age would probably have been retired and replaced with a new one," he said. "Now, with miners looking to better ‘sweat their assets’ and get more out of them as part of an industry-wide drive to reduce costs, options such as rebuilding older machines to as-new OEM-spec condition are becoming increasingly popular. "But to do this, they require the combination of product durability, design and reliability to justify the rebuild investment, and the ability of a supplier to bring equipment back upup to as-new condition. "At Sandvik Mining, we are investing heavily in our ability to provide these high levels of machine refurbishment and rebuilding, through our Australia-wide network of Customer Service Centres, and our new-concept Productivity Centres," Tolley said. "Projects such as this one at our Kalgoorlie CSC are examples of how we can work with our mining customers to reduce their capital equipment costs, while maintaining or improving their required levels of productivity.""
"With Sandvik DE130i and DE140i, operators set safe machine limits, initiate the drilling operation, put the drill in AUTO mode and then watch it drill a complete 'run,'" said George Tophinke, global exploration equipment manager at Sandvik Mining
"Imagine if your drill rods lasted more than 30%. You would drill more metres on every shift and reduce your cost per metre, increasing profit."
