Novel efficient solution for mining and bulk excavation processes

Jouni Suomalinen

For forty years Nikko Oy has been in the rock drilling business, with light Excadrills, in particular. The currently available product line includes 6 Excadrills ranging in their weight from 950 kg to 2,850 kg, which are able to drill blastholes and holes of 30–41 mm to 76–127 mm accordingly. The drills are hydraulic excavator-mounted in place of a bucket. It takes no more than 5 minutes to replace an excavator bucket with a drill.
