Five new underground products from Atlas Copco
Atlas Copco launched five new products for underground construction and mining applications at bauma.

The new series of Boomer E rigs features the COP 4038 and the new COP 1800+ series. Both product lines include a new rig control system as well as a new version of Atlas Copco´s Advanced Underground Manager system. This much-improved user interface takes planning and evaluation to the next level in performance and efficiency.
The series also includes a new dry drilling system, providing totally water-free face drilling.

Atlas Copco’s new Boomer E-series can be equipped with the strongest and fastest rock drill on the market, the new COP 4038. It is 20-30% faster than the nearest contender and optimised for hard rock conditions.

The COP 4038 comes with a COP care pro service agreement that safeguards reliability, availability, and sustainable productivity. It is a super-fast 40kW rock drill for 43-64mm drifter holes, which utilises Atlas Copco’s high-frequency technology together with an efficient double damping system to absorb reflex shock waves – making it possible to drill exceptionally fast without increasing wear on the drill steel.

The COP 1800+ series provides the same great performance as its predecessor, the standard COP 1800-series, but extends recommended service intervals by 50%.

All over the world, demands for documentation and follow-up are on the rise. This prompted Atlas Copco to create its new Underground Manager, taking planning and evaluation to a higher level.

The system provides excellent support for all Atlas Copco underground machines. The user interface is new, modern, and easy to use. Underground Manager contains a new drill plan generator, complete 3D view of the tunnel, smart interpolation of contours, and an improved log and report function.

Carbon emissions have also been reduced to a minimum. Diesel engines take care of tramming but, once on site, electricity takes over for drilling.
Stage 3B/Tier4i diesel engines are standard on the rig and biodegradable hydraulic oils are available as well.

Boomer rigs can be equipped with up to four booms, providing a coverage area of 16-208m2, and the most extensive range of high performance rock drills on the market (16-40 kW) designed to tackle all rock types and drilling conditions.
