Rockmore Introduces New XR32 Thread Design

Staff | September 28, 2010

In response to underground drillers demand for a stronger, more powerful drill string, Rockmore has developed the XR32 thread design for Drifting and Tunneling Operations.

The XR32 connection provides stability at the thread end, reducing stress on the thread connection. The innovative ContactZone design provides stronger rod support, increased rigidity and added strength to minimize rod bending due to complex rock formations or uneven surfaces. This means less wear, higher precision collaring and straighter holes.

Better bit guidance means increased hole precision and better drilling accuracy. Less reflex vibration means less wear and increased thread life for both bits and rods. Smooth integration, and increased equipment life combined with better performance are the answers that Rockmore provided the drillers demands in the XR32.
