Robit’s Unique Measuring Technology
Takes Percussive Drilling to a Higher Plane!

Robit® is the first company in the world to develop a patented measuring system that can measure the straightness of a hole during the percussive drilling process.

Do you know where the end is of the holes you drill? You can now, with Robit’s new measuring technology. The system is the result of an intensive, seven year R&D program at Robit and is in operation at selected customers. Unlike existing, time-consuming manual systems, measuring during the drilling process does not require an extra work phase in the drilling process. The measurements are available immediately after drilling a hole. You can see a 3D view of the drilled hole in the drilling pattern.

When drilling holes in rock, the holes often turn away from the desired direction, and in long holes the deviation may even be several metres. Hole deviation results in inefficient operations on a site and in the worst case may create hazards. The new system measures the actual straightness of drill holes immediately, so the information can be utilized in optimizing and charging a rock face.

Optimizing charging raises efficiency in drilling by:

  • Optimizing crushing aggregates through controlled charging and blasting, no oversized boulders;
  • Ensuring safe blasting without the risk of flying rocks;
  • Optimizing yield from the orebody by avoiding drilling into waste rock;
  • Increasing the overall productivity of the blasting and crushing process;
  • Cutting costs for fuel and explosives and reducing downtime;
  • Storing all drilling data in a database to develop your drilling process;
  • Raising overall efficiency.

Since the results are obtained immediately, it is possible to react to any hole deviation when positioning and directing the following holes. The system functions in all types of rock formations - even in magnetic ore.

Robit’s very specialized offerings consist of Top Hammer Rock Drilling Tools and DTH Ground Drilling Tools. With firm roots in the deep, hard Scandinavian granite and the Finnish mining industry, Robit possess indepth knowledge of drilling in the most challenging rock types. Robit has become a global company headquartered in Finland, with a presence today in more than 110 countries. Successful partner network collaboration has played a large part in this growth. At present, Robit’s high quality products are manufactured on 2 continents, in Finland and South Korea. Robit has sales offices in the U.S., South Africa, Peru, China and Russia.
