Boart Longyear brings Sonic Technology to CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

Salt Lake City, Utah - February 21, 2020

 CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 is North America’s largest construction trade show, and Boart Longyear is ready to show everyone in the construction world how their products and services contribute to more drilling productivity and efficiency. The Company offers a lot to the community, and customers who visit the Blue Lot Booth #BL218 will see why Boart Longyear has been a pioneer in the drilling industry for 130 years.

Boart Longyear’s heavy-duty bits, casings, and complete drill strings are used in a variety of overburden and construction drilling applications including anchoring, micro-piling, ground freezing, and jet grouting. Boart Longyear’s Percussive Tooling line includes rods, bits and shanks that offer high-quality products for blast hole and roof bolt drilling applications. In addition, Boart Longyear’s line of drill rig equipment includes deep-reaching surface and underground drills, truly hands-free rod handling solutions, and sonic drilling equipment that minimizes friction for more efficient penetration while reducing environmental impact.

“Boart Longyear has products and services we believe will interest people who have construction or blasting applications, as well as those who use or specify drills for environmental, production or exploration projects.”

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 will feature exhibitors representing products in asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, hauling, lifting, trucking, underground construction and more. Boart Longyear is one of more than 2,000 exhibitors at this international event being held in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 10 – 14, 2020.

“Boart Longyear has products and services we believe will interest people who have construction or blasting applications, as well as those who use or specify drills for environmental, production or exploration projects,” said Pat Nill, the Boart Longyear Vice President of Global Products. “This year we are featuring one of our sonic rigs—the LS600. We’re confident this rig will be interesting to those who may already be doing sonic drilling, and engineering firms who are wanting a waterless, lower disturbance, lower dust way to drill for samples on construction or environmental jobs. We love sharing our greatest innovations with customers and industry professionals and discussing how we can help on all sorts of projects.”

"This is a great opportunity to show others what Boart Longyear is all about, and to gain lasting connections with people who may not be in the mining industry, but who can benefit from the products and services we offer.”

Brendan Ryan, Boart Longyear Chief Business Development Officer

This year, Boart Longyear experts will be available to talk about some of the Company’s innovative products and services, like the LS™600 Sonic Rig and SV600 Support Vehicle— both on display in Booth #BL218. This advanced sonic rig drills deeper, produces more accurate samples, and serves more markets than any other sonic drilling rig. Boart Longyear also offers Sonic Tooling to complement its line of sonic rigs. Made of high-quality precision steels plus special heat treatment processes this sonic tooling provides unsurpassed stability, straightness, and durability of the sonic drill string assembly.

For use in production drilling, Boart Longyear offers the StopeMate™ pneumatic drill which is extremely compact—small enough to be loaded into a lift cage. This drill is capable of drilling 51 mm to 76 mm holes, accommodates drilling depths of 12 to 25 meters, and can be quickly disassembled and reassembled to gain access to captive areas.

For top hammer tooling applications such as tunneling, bolting, and drifting, the DriftMaster™ series of rods and bits are designed with a unique thread profile for added endurance and strength. Boart Longyear also has high-quality overburden tooling, used in applications for anchoring, micro-piling, and jet grouting. 

Brendan Ryan, Chief Business Development Officer of Boart Longyear, said, “We are excited to be a part of CONEXPO-CON/AGG. This is a great opportunity to show others what Boart Longyear is all about, and to gain lasting connections with people who may not be in the mining industry, but who can benefit from the products and services we offer.”
