Padley & Venables of Sheffield are pleased to announce the launch of a new Product – Dual Drive Shank Rods.
Launched in Sweden in May 2014 at Maskin Expo at the Aronsborg Conference Center, P&V are sure that this new product will become an invaluable tool in the Rock Drilling industry.
Maskin Expo is a general equipment exhibition encompassing farming and forestry machinery as well as rock drilling.
This years’ Aronsborg event was organized by Global Drilling in association with Sandvik and Atlas under the umbrella of BEF, the Rock Drilling companies association. Many of its members were invited and exhibited.
Dual Drive Shank Rods
Designed to minimise the problems associated with premature breakage and the resulting downtime, the revolutionary design of the Dual-Drive Shank Rod isolates the threads from bending forces created by bit deflection while drilling, greatly reducing the stress on threads.
Forces are transmitted more effectively to the face of the bit through the skirt and body of the bit, therefore reducing exposure of the threads to potentially damaging percussive forces.
Dirt and rock debris are tough on threads; our unique design protects the threaded connection from exposure to debris while exiting the hole, this extends thread life.
Matek (Ystad Maskiner) exhibited some of our range of demolition tools, at Maskin Expo.
