Atlas Copco’s Diamec Care service program boosts exploration drilling efficiency


Stockholm, Sweden, January 4th 2009: Atlas Copco introduces Diamec Care, the new support concept for exploration drillers who want to improve the performance and service life of their Diamec core drilling rigs. The concept includes preventive service and maintenance of the well known core drilling rig, improving drilling economy.

The new service program, Diamec Care, gives the exploration driller a more predictable operation. Diamec Care consists of four components to help the contractor get the most out of their Diamec core drilling rigs:

With a scheduled service, there is less risk for breakdowns, secondary damages and other unpleasant surprises. The drill rig will run better and safer during a longer service life. There is also less need to have own service staff standing by just in case. Simply put – better economy!

Frequent inspection protocols document the quality of the equipment and increase second hand value. With good documentation, maintenance costs will be optimized and the right measures will be taken at all times.

With an extended warranty for equipment under a Diamec Care program, the owner will have peace of mind and can disregard costs for unexpected breakdowns of major components. The extended warranty covers the entire Diamec core drilling rig, except for the rotation unit.

With the frequent reviews by an Atlas Copco service engineer, the operator will receive valuable application know-how and feedback on drilling performance, equipment settings etc.

Without doubt this is the optimal way for a contractor to get the most value from his investment. Unwanted downtime in drilling is the biggest enemy of profit” said Daniel Misiano, Marketing Manager Exploration, Atlas Copco.

The Diamec Care program is available for Diamec models U4, U6 and U8.
