Epiroc’s Drilling Solutions division develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of rotary drilling equipment. The machines are used in surface mining, exploration, construction, and water well and shallow oil and gas applications worldwide.
Some of our recently launched successful products that increase customer productivity include:
The Pit Viper-275 CA, a fully autonomous rotary blasthole drill
The Pit Viper-231 rotary blasthole drill
The Diamondback DB40 water well drill
The Rig Control System RCS Lite, which facilitates and enhances the operator experience
All these products are on the cutting edge when it comes to productivity, energy efficiency, safety and ergonomics.
Automation is increasingly a key aspect for us as it can go a long way to create more value for customers, for example by allowing them to operate their drill rigs remotely. In June 2017, our team performed a transcontinental blast-hole drill with a fully autonomous Pit Viper 275 in Garland, Texas, USA, controlled more than 8,100 kilometers away from Stockholm, Sweden.
Our divisional headquarters and main production center are located in Garland, Texas, United States.
