Robit’s quality has been approved worldwide by major mining and quarrying customers. The selection is wide and encompasses products, such as:
The Down the Hole business line covers all operations related to the down the hole drilling method. The main product categories consist of DTH hammers, DTH bits, DTH tubes, DTH casing systems, rotary bits. The selection is the widest in the world and encompasses top quality products (included top hammer business consumables) for all your applications:
Forepoling, also known as tube umbrella, is an application used to strengthen tunnel roof in broken rock conditions. Drilling system consists of casing tubes which are drilled through the overburden as an umbrella and filled with grouting.
Robit® Casing System allows easy driving of the casing tubes into the ground with low torque demand. In modern forepoling also fibreglass casings can be used for ultra-long facebolts.
Robit® Casing Systems mostly used in forepoling are RoX+ 88,9/8, RoX 114,3/10 and RoX 139,7/10.
All other forepoling consumables available also: pilot bits, ring assemblies, drill rods, starter casings, extension casings, grouting plugs (end caps), adapters, grouting valves and forepoling drilling systems.
The Digital Services business is focused on providing modern, new digital technologies for operating with Top Hammer and Down The Hole drilling applications. Initially the offering comprises the unique drill hole measurement technology branded as Robit Sense Systems. The Sense Systems product family is the result of an extensive R&D program lending much of its insights from the thorough understanding of rock and ground drilling Robit has gained during its 30 years of history and growth. The Robit brand itself has become a synonym for high-quality drilling consumables all around the world, and the digitalization of drill steel was a natural next step.
In broad terms, Sense Systems seek to add ever deeper levels of understanding and optimization to the drilling process through digitalization. A significant leap on this path was taken when Robit became the first company in the world to develop a patented system that can measure hole deviation during the percussive drilling process. The ‘S Sense’ for Top Hammer surface drilling was launched at the beginning of 2017 after an extensive testing phase. Along with the S, a manual ‘M Sense’ is on offer, using much of the same R&D knowledge and technology that has gone into creating the ground-breaking S.
