Sandvik Construction’s new Driller’s Office software
Sandvik Construction has unveiled what it says is a ground-breaking practical software tool for surface drilling process management called the Sandvik Driller’s Office.
“This is an advanced tool is for anyone who works with surface drilling management, in particular in quarrying applications,” said Sandvik. “It helps simplify the whole process, as well as managing it efficiently.”
Sandvik Driller’s Office software is a surface drilling planning and data management tool and covers drill Plan design, drilling data management and reporting, following the logic of the job site and featuring visualisations of the drilling pattern and 3D terrain models.
Sandvik Driller’s Office also features a Drill Plan Wizard for quick creation of basic drilling plans and a Drill Plan Editor for creating more advanced plans.
In Drill Plan Editor hole positions, floor level, inclination, direction and many more factors, can be adjusted independently as needed.
A measurement tool and specific markers define the correct spot to start drilling, meaning that separate measuring and marking is not needed at the site which saves time and money.
Communications to and from the rig is handled over a mobile data connection, and Sandvik Driller’s Office tool is available for all TIM3D-ready surface drills.
