Navigation with HNS – a milestone in hole positioning

2006 Dec 19

The accurate collaring and alignment of a drill hole is a driller’s skill that comes with years of training and practical experience. Now it can be done quicker, easier and better than ever.

Today?s drillers have a remarkable new tool at their disposal that is making their lives on the drill site a great deal easier. Called the Atlas Copco Hole Navigation System (HNS), this is a guidance system which helps the driller to find the precise location of a pre-planned hole, thereby reducing the margin of error to an absolute minimum.

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