EPIROC are launching the SmartROC T30 R, a powerful, radio remote surface drill rig, built on the same flagship platform as newly released SmartROC T25 R. The construction and quarrying rig is equipped with the Epiroc Rig Control System (RCS), which enables the highest technology and automation level within the segment. Automated features together with 19kW drilling power, an excellent coverage area, and superior terrainability, mean the T30 R provides the operator with more drilled metres per shift.

‘With impressive drilling power, this rig can approach big and demanding projects with ease,’ said Marcus Leü, global product manager at Epiroc. ‘Compared with its versatile little sister, the SmartROC T25 R with 14kW, the SmartROC T30 R with its 19kW can work in additional environment’s, expanding the options for this flagship platform.’

The SmartROC T30 R is equipped with RCS hardware and software, facilitating onboard automation solutions. An automated rod-handling system allows the addition of drill rods either manually or automatically. The RCS also enables access to the Epiroc developed Hole Navigation System (HNS), which ensures the highest quality of drilled holes, and makes operations much safer and easier. The HNS technology reduces the amount of explosives, as well as improves fuel efficiency – contributing to a reduced environmental footprint.


The SmartROC T30 R offers a 45/45 boomswing that, combined with a 5.7m boom system, gives the rig a coverage area of 24m2. These features are matched with a rotation unit which provides 360° feed swing and a boom geometry that enables it to drill right next to the machine. The rig is said to have the highest efficiency in the segment thanks to its coverage area, stability, and drilling performance.

A low centre of gravity, steel crawler tracks with wide spacing, together with a boom system with good manoeuvrability, gives the SmartROC T30 R excellent terrainability qualities. The well-balanced rig provides the operator with a safe work environment and improved productivity.

‘The combination of great terrainability, large coverage area, and the powerful COP SC19 HF, makes the rig outstanding and suitable to manage even the most challenging projects. Together with the Rig Control System that supports the operation with automation features and helpful drilling logs, the rig can deliver terrific productivity,’ said Mr Leü.
