Diamec Smart RCS

The Diamec Smart Rig Control System (RCS) enables automated drilling functions that increases both productivity and safety.


Compact and smart

Automated drilling

Diamec Smart 4 has an advanced Rig Control System allowing it to be operated automatically. From the touch screen on the remote control panel, drilling parameters are easily set and the monitored.

Less time wasted between holes

A unique positioner system, with turntable, facilitates movement of the feed frame through 180°, ensuring proper alignment to existing holes. Synchronized dual hydraulic cylinders move the feed frame from vertically downwards to vertically upwards – and there’s no need to move the wire line winch.

Versatility at its best

Diamec Smart 4 can be configured in several ways depending upon your requirements. Two different feed frames enable drilling in confined spaces as well as drilling deep holes. Two rotation units offer a wide range of dimensions for various drilling conditions. Various carrier options available as well.

Product description

The Diamec Smart 4 is compact and powerful for its size as well as easy to set up. Ideal for both underground and surface drilling, it can be equipped with a long or short feed frame and wire line equipment. The “push-equals-pull” feed cylinder also allows for maximum capacity for uphole and downhole drilling. A unique positioner system facilitates movement of the feed frame through 180 degrees. With the aid of levers, the synchronized dual hydraulic cylinders move the feed frame from vertically downwards all the way up to vertically upwards – and there’s no need to move the wire line winch. This ensures exact lining up to existing holes. A turntable is also available for easier horizontal adjustment.
