New blasthole horizons
An interview with Matt Collins, Product Director - Drills, Komatsu Mining Corp.
Furthering its commitment to be a full solutions provider to the mining industry, Komatsu Mining recently expanded its P&H product line to include articulating boom track drills. The first machine in the series, the 44XT, has been tested at the company’s Arizona Proving Grounds and at limestone and lithium mining customer locations. In larger models, Komatsu introduced the 77XD drill model at MINExpo 2016 and has since renamed it the 77XR to reflect its versatility for the rotary blasthole market. The 77XR was designed to accommodate the largest spectrum of blasthole drilling from coal to hard rock applications.
