New Rocket Boomer S1 D makes impressive debut in Chile

Atlas Copco?s new single-boom underground drill rig ? the Rocket Boomer S1 D ? has been put through its paces with impressive results at the Las Cenizas copper mine in Chile.

When Atlas Copco launched its new one-boom drill rig at the beginning of this year, expectations were high (see M&C 1, 2007). Equipped with the fast COP 2238 rock drill and with a modern, ergonomic and easy-to-handle design, it looked set to become a record-breaker in drifting and tunnelling.

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