Efficient and productive mining operations are determined from the very beginning of the whole processes, which are drilling and blasting. Trakindo recently introduced a more advanced and efficient drilling machine, Cat® MD6250 Rotary Blasthole Drill.

The crawler-mounted blasthole drill is designed to drill from 152-250 mm diameter holes and optimized for single-pass or multi-pass drilling in both rotary and DTH drilling modes.

At the launching ceremony recently, Trakindo handed over the new unit to its first customer, PT Petrosea Tbk. in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan.

Cat MD6250 offers more advanced and efficient drilling operations as it has features that ensure optimal and precise drilling activities. With MD6250, customers can save 5 to 10 percent of fuel consumption costs.

Cat MD6250 is a smart drill that can provide more accurate drilling. The smart drill is able to drill as precisely as required by mining engineers in terms of distance between holes and depth in order to achieve the most optimal rock fragmentation. Cat MD6250 also has auto-leveling feature that makes sure the machine automatically level, with one button.
