Design Engineering

OUR HIGHLY SPECIALISED AND ADVANCED DRILL RIGS ARE CUSTOM DESIGNED BY OUR ENGINEERS FOR THE CONDITIONS AND REQUIREMENTS OF THE PROJECT.

Innovating constantly to advance drilling

Every mining and exploration project demands subtly different requirements from a rig. Sometimes those differences can result in significant cost and time implications for the project and drillers onsite. That’s why a customised rig designed specifically for the project and customer’s needs is the answer.

Drill Rigs Australia has a dedicated design engineering team whose job is to develop new rigs for unique or large-scale projects requiring a productive edge.

Our engineers design each rig from the ground up. They take into consideration the geological conditions that will impact on the rig’s productiveness, the terrain and location where the rig will be operating, the operating challenges and safety of the drillers and the customer’s drilling requirements.

This has resulted in the development of rigs that:

  • Are more stable in rough terrain
  • Can drill more holes without the need to track
  • Require less maintenance
  • Have masts that can be lowered to the ground so there is no working at height safety issues
  • Run at higher air pressures to help lift cuttings out of the ground and increase penetration
  • Have unique cooling systems so they can run bigger engines, even in high temperature environments, to extend the life of the rig and reduce stress on components

That’s why when we deliver a rig to site, we know it will outperform any other.
