Atlas Copco’s EDGE drill monitor, originally developed for the oil and gas drilling market, is now available for the mining industry. EDGE is a system for continuous monitoring that can be fitted to all types of drill rigs that use Secoroc DTH (down-the-hole) hammers.

  • Provides simple graphical display to show driller what is happening with the hammer and the bit at the bottom of the hole
  • Real-time feedback allows driller to optimize penetration rate, maintain consistency and reduce the chance of over-extending the tools, avoiding breakage and costly delays
  • Consists of a sensor, a data capturing and processing unit, and a rugged personal computer with a 7 in. display screen
  • Sensor is mounted on drill head or rotation unit which is connected by a cable to the data capturing unit mounted on the rig
  • When piston in DTH hammer strikes the bit, it creates vibration which is captured, processed and interpreted, and that data is transmitted to the PC
  • PC displays this data on screen in both a graphic representation and in actual numbers
