Future of Rockdrilling

The main purpose of the project is to explore the possibilities of enhancing the movability of Surface drilling rigs. These rigs are used at infrastructure worksites, such as construction jobs, self drilling anchors, bolting holes and boulder blasting. These are often day to week long jobs, where mobility is important. By looking at, and revising the structure of the surface drilling units, possibilities of smaller footprint and more efficient transportation can be explored.
