What Safety Features Do Production Drill Rigs Have?

April 25,2024

Drill Rigs

In underground mining, the safety of drilling operations should be always the top priority on every project. With the advancements of technology, modern longhole drill rigs are equipped with a large number of safety features that ensure the safety of operators. These features can also contribute to increased efficiency and precision, for instance, by automating tasks, it can reduce the risk of human error.

Therefore, let’s take a deeper look through this article at the various safety features that make a production drilling rig a reliable asset in the field.

High Efficiency

Efficiency is crucial in any drilling operation and modern face drill rigs are designed to optimize productivity while maintaining safety standards.

Precise Drilling

Precision is essential to achieving the desired drilling results and minimize the risk, such as inappropriate positioned holes will compromise tunnel stability or damage valuable mineral deposits. Computerized mining drill rigs can achieve it by accurately positioning and drilling holes via scanning the working surface.


Automation plays an important role in streamlining drilling operations and reducing manual intervention. Siton DL deep hole drilling rigs are equipped with automatic rod loading systems instead of manual loading, significantly reducing the risk of repetitive strain and back injuries associated with manual rod handling. This also improves operating efficiency.

Operator Safety

Given the inherent risks associated with drilling operations such as falling rocks and equipment rollover, it's crucial to ensure the safety of drill rig operators. Siton addresses these concerns by equipping our mining drilling rigs with Enclosed Operator Cabs certified for FOPS and ROPS, providing protection for operators.

In conclusion, deep hole drill rigs equipped with a comprehensive range of safety features can contribute to increase efficiency, precision, and operator safety. These features create a controlled work environment that allows for optimal performance.
