Atlas Copco completes the T-WiZ range with the T-WiZ 60. The new drill string, with its combination of T-WiZ Speedrods and T-WiZ shank adapters, offers up to 30 percent longer service life providing fewer rod changes and more productivity per shift, according to the manufacturer.

T-WiZ is a tough thread system due to the greater thread stability. It is robust enough to prevent product breakage in the blasthole. This creates a shift in focus from the time-consuming rod and shank changes to maintaining a much leaner stock.

Regardless of assignment — underground, in surface mines or on construction sites — the difference is considerable.

With easier handling and uncoupling, it drills more holes per shift for quicker blasting and a more rapid advance. With lower labor costs, minimized stock, less administration and fewer rods and shanks in circulation, the T-WiZ helps drillers stay on top of their projects.

The Range

The T-WiZ drilling system comes in four dimensions — the T-WiZ 38, T-WiZ 45, T-WiZ 51 and T-WiZ 60 Speedrods and shank adapters designed for extension or drifting drill strings. Secoroc’s comprehensive range of top hammer bits matches the T-WiZ drilling rods with the added benefit of being easier to release and change.
