SUNWARD to showcase a fully operational surface drill rig at Electra Mining Africa 2022

A real-life display of the SUNWARD SWDR138S excavator drill rig on SUNWARD South Africa’s show stand – this is the hands-on experience that visitors to this year’s Electra Mining can look forward to. Proven tough and reliable in South Africa’s harsh mining environment, this OEM approved machine is widely used in hard rock and coal mining applications and is one of the most versatile and flexible excavator drilling rigs available in the market. The drill rig has proved its capabilities in blast hole drilling within the surface mining, construction, quarrying and infrastructure market segments. 

“Owning the right equipment is the first step to operational sustainability and business profitability, underpinned by the fundamentally important aspect of operator safety,” notes Pascal Mbambo, Director of AZIZE Equipment, the sole distributor of SUNWARD products in South Africa. “The drilling and blasting business is centred on meters drilled and tons or cubic meters moved while keeping operational costs to a minimum. Operators are therefore looking for efficient, reliable machines in order to maximise availability and uptime; with a SUNWARD drill rig, they will meet these objectives hands down.”

SUNWARD machines feature all the best-in-class components yet are significantly less complex compared to many other options in the market. This straight-forward, no-frills package signifies ruggedness, reliability, simplicity, and ease-of-operation and -serviceability for improved uptime and enhanced profitability at the lowest total cost of ownership.
