New drill makes its debut

Epiroc recently boosted its rock drill portfolio with the introduction of the new COP MD 20, which is engineered for improved performance, extended life span and reduced running costs.

The unit is optimised for mine drift applications giving faster blast / bolt hole drilling. Few housing parts provide stability and durability like this one.

In addition, the recommended 1 000-hour service interval which is 67% longer compared to the COP 1838HD+ series, means less servicing so that users can drill longer between every overhaul. Plus, improved resistance to free hammering reduces breakdowns and lowers costs.

Using the standard overhaul kit as reference, there is an estimated 25% reduction in maintenance costs compared to the COP 1838HD+. As the kit is offered for equipment with 6000 and 2000 series feed, there is no need for feed replacement.
