Sandvik and Cubex team up for QXR

sandvik mining SANDVIK Mining and Construction has signed a global partnership agreement with Canadianbased drill-rig manufacturer Cubex for the distribution of QXR surface drills.

Following the success of the dealer agreement in November 2009, under which Sandvik distributes the Cubex line of undergroundmining products, the two companies are expanding the arrangement.

Sandvik will now distribute the entire range of QXR down-the-hole (DTH) surface drills and also undertake global sales, customer service and aftermarket support for QXR surface products.

Sandvik and Cubex are developing plans to ensure a seamless transition, and they expect a continuation of the high level of existing support and service for the fleet of QXR drills already operating globally.

Manfred Schaffer, president of surface mining at Sandvik, explained: “The QXR series is a perfect addition to our portfolio of surface mining drills. The integration of the range, combined with Sandvik’s global customer support, will represent huge benefits for our customers.”

Kitch Wilson, president of Cubex, commented: “The QXR has already proved itself to be a productivity leader in downthe- hole drilling. Now, with the global support of Sandvik, we are convinced that these drills will be increasingly popular in mining and large quarry operations for a wide variety of drilling applications.”

QXR drills are fully self-contained, dieselpowered, high-pressure DTH drills. They are crawler-mounted, and have tilting booms and feeds for maximum flexibility.

QXRs can be used in a broad range of mine drilling applications, including: blasthole production drilling; pre-split drilling; pioneering and pit dewatering. The machines are also becoming popular for reverse-circulation drilling in sampling and grade control.

A full range of engine and compressor configurations allow the machines to be optimised for 4in, 5in, 6in and 8in DTH hammers.
