Expanded access and support for HDD rock tooling
Two of the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) industry's leading equipment and tooling manufacturers, Mincon and Vermeer, have formed a distribution alliance to expand contractors access to quality rock tooling worldwide. As part of the agreement, Vermeer dealers are now the exclusive channel for Mincon HDD Air Hammer Systems, HDD Pull Reaming Hammers and HDD support equipment including HDD support stations and oilers globally, except for the Scandinavian region which will continue to be serviced by Mincon Nordic.
“Mincon has pioneered HDD rock drilling solutions and when paired with Vermeer drills are productive in hard rock environments,",” says Jason Zylstra, product manager Lifecycle at Vermeer. “With the responsive support provided by Vermeer dealers and quality Mincon tooling, contractors have everything they need to take on challenging rock bores."
Mincon Hard Rock Hammers Systems utilize high-frequency cycle technology that aids in the faster removal of drill cuttings from the bit face while providing the smallest possible chips. This design also improves steering capabilities and causes less vibration in the drill string.
