Rig Aligners

Well Force supplies a gyrocompass, driller operated rig aligner, which improves accuracy and productivity in both surface and underground drilling operations

The rig aligner uses a simple clamping mechanism to attach to drill rods, where it will complete a self-calibration within ten minutes.  Drilling coordinates can be entered on site via a hand held device or pre-loaded and sent directly to the rig.  The drill rig can then be aligned to the correct dip and azimuth within minutes.

Features & Benefits:

  • Improves productivity, can align a drill rig in ten minutes once calibration is completed
  • Improves accuracy, co-ordinates are loaded directly into the rig aligner avoiding human error associated with incorrect survey markings and entering incorrect co-ordinates
  • Azimuth to True North in both surface and underground operations
  • Reduces costs associated with survey teams marking drill co-ordinates
  • Wireless, hand held unit shows live tracking to help accurately guide drill rig into place
  • Suitable for use with rod sizes B to H (55m to 90mm OD)
