Atlas Copco has introduced the next generation in their Secoroc COP line of down-the-hole hammers.
The COP 66 is shorter, lighter and easier to operate than its predecessors, and penetrates 15 percent faster than its predecessor, according to Atlas Copco. It is also more easily adjustable for feed force and rotation, features no exhaust tube, and includes a solid bit with no center flushing hole. With fewer parts, reduced air consumption and a 30 percent shorter and lighter hammer than previous models, the unit is said to have a longer service lifespan. The E-kit allows the COP 66 to be rebuilt twice over its lifetime in normal abrasive conditions. The hammer is designed for use on the Atlas Copco SmartROC and FlexiROC drill rigs.
