Symmetrix: Opening doors to a new world of construction

2005 Mar 15

When Atlas Copco acquired the Rotex company in 2004, it was another milestone in the company’s range of products for overburden drilling and related technologies. In addition to its well proven ODEX equipment and DEPS dual energy percussion system, Atlas Copco was now able to offer Symmetrix, a unique system enabling drillers to drill casings deeper and with larger diameters than ever before.

The ODEX method (overburden drilling with excentric bit) is well established among drilling contractors, particularly when it comes to shallow, small dimension holes. Now, with the Symmetrix system in its range, Atlas Copco has opened the door to an infinite number of applications where casing drilling is the preferred solution for forepoling, micropiling and other types of ground engineering work.

Epiroc operated under the trademark “Atlas Copco” prior to January 1, 2018.
