In recent years, self-driving vehicles have become a popular discussion topic. Sandvik has had automated loaders and trucks working in mines for over 20 years — with zero accidents involving people. To prove its capabilities, Sandvik moved things above ground and put its latest generation of automation to the test. In a new film, an 11-meter-long Sandvik LH514 self-navigates through a labyrinth of glass. While glass is clearly a different material to the rock walls the laser sensors are designed for, the loader detects the fragile labyrinth and maneuvers through its narrow aisles.
Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology expands its high-pressure DTH drill rig offering with a new model, Leopard DI650i, designed for larger hole sizes. Balancing proven engineering solutions and innovative new components, the new DTH rig offers excellent fuel efficiency, improved safety and higher productivity in challenging rock conditions.

Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology has released its data interoperability policy, which specifies how Sandvik systems, equipment and tools share data in the mining digital ecosystem. The policy outlines the principles by which Sandvik systems can communicate in a digitized mining and rock excavation industry.
RockPulse™, a new technology and product introduced by Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, is the first practical solution for real-time tool stress monitoring in top-hammer drilling. The add-on system integrates directly with the rock drill and its control system, and can be used for drilling process optimization in varying rock conditions. This also helps to reduce the stress fatigue of drilling tools. RockPulse™ offers significant potential to improve overall drilling performance, by as much as 5 %.
With three new platforms nearing release, we continue to expand our i-Series line of intelligent drills designed to offer our customers a broader range of hole diameters with single-pass, multi-pass, high and low pressure options. As our platform of the future, the i-Series family comes with an impressive array of advanced features and customer benefits.
