The Difference Is Electrifying

Jan 4, 2017

 Back to article listings for 2017

The mining industry has been disrupted. New, less fossil-fuel dependent technologies built into Sandvik DD422iE will help you drive down production costs while reducing environmental impact. With zero emissions during tramming and better drilling productivity, the new, industry-first Sandvik DD422iE is full of the latest features that give you a real competitive advantage. Read on to learn more.

BATTERY-DRIVEN TRAMMING – ZERO EMISSIONS
Using the onboard battery, Sandvik DD422iE produces zero emissions while tramming, improving health and safety for underground workers.

NO DIESEL, LOWER COST.
By cutting down on diesel you can potentially even reduce the need for expensive infrastructure to transport fresh air underground as well as diesel fuel logistics.

3D SCANNING – SAVE VALUABLE METERS EVERY MONTH
Our simple point cloud scanning, iSCAN, automatically informs the drill of its exact position. This instantly available data enables you to optimize your drill pattern accordingly. It comes fully integrated with iSURE, our industry-leading drill planning and analysis tool.

55% LESS HOSING
By implementing common rail hydraulics, our less-hose boom option reduces the length of hosing from 240 to 110 meters, so you reduce your exposure to potential damages and spend less hours on maintenance.

DON’T STOP TO RECHARGE
Revolutionary Sandvik driveline technology enables the battery to recharge during the drilling cycle, or recharge during downhill tramming utilizing by its regenerative braking system.

PEAK POWER MANAGEMENT
By drawing reserve power from the batteries during peak loads during drilling, the jumbo’s intelligent power management system helps you meet ever-increasing productivity requirements despite limited underground electric power capacities.
5 ways Sandvik DD422iE will improve your mining operation
DD422iE helps reduce overall diesel particulate matter (DPM), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and carbon dioxide emissions in your mine, creating an improved underground environment for workers. You can improve your control by utilizing our revolutionary iSCAN technology integrated with iSure and OptiMine Remote Monitoring.

Charge your batteries during the normal drilling cycle.
With 55% less hydraulic hosing you can reduce common breakages.
