The LMT110 Is Introduced as the Most Powerful Underground Boart
LongyearT Diamond Coring Drill Rig
SALT LAKE CITY, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boart Longyear
(www.BoartLongyear.com), the world's leading provider of integrated
drilling services, equipment and performance tooling, has expanded
their line of underground LMT modular diamond drill rigs to include
the new LM110. Ideal for drilling deep holes, the LM110 is the most
powerful Boart Longyear underground diamond coring drill rig to date.
Equipped with a 110-kilowatt power pack, the LM110 delivers up to 33
percent more torque at the drill head than the LM90 - which was
previously Boart Longyear's most powerful underground diamond drill
rig. Also featuring a 128 kN feed frame, the LM110 provides high
pullback force and a fast rod-handling rate, which allows for
increased drilling productivity.
"Our underground drilling customers requested a drill that could
provide more torque at the drill head," said Justin Warren, senior
product manager for Boart Longyear. "The LM110 provides contractors
with more power featuring the proven technology of our LM line of
The LM series includes the LM30SS, LM55, LM75, LM90 and now the LM110.
The rigs range from small-compact to robust drills that use an
electronic control system. LM rigs provide reliable, high-performance
deep-hole drilling and are economical to own and maintain because of
their modular design.
The LM rigs are made up of five modular units: a power pack, feed
frame, rotation unit, foot clamp and controller. The components can be
interchanged to adapt to customer requirements as their needs change.
"Because of the modular nature of the LM series, Boart Longyear can
provide the 110-kilowatt power pack as an upgrade kit to customers
that already own an LM series drill rig, providing a more cost
effective option than purchasing a complete new drill," added Warren.
The LM110 can be outfitted with a rod handler and the Drill Control
InterfaceT (DCiT) for enhanced safety, hands-free making or breaking
of joints, and semi-autonomous drilling.
