PELLA, Iowa, February 15, 2018 - Two of the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) industry's leading equipment and tooling manufacturers, Vermeer Corporation and Mincon Group PLC, have formed a distribution alliance to expand contractors’ access to quality rock tooling worldwide. As part of the agreement, Vermeer dealers are now the exclusive channel for Mincon HDD air hammer systems, HDD pull reaming hammers and HDD support equipment, including HDD support stations and oilers.
“Mincon has pioneered HDD rock drilling solutions and when paired with Vermeer drills are productive in hard rock environments," said Jason Zylstra, product manager, Lifecycle at Vermeer. “With the responsive support provided by Vermeer dealers and quality Mincon tooling, contractors have everything they need to take on challenging rock bores."
Mincon hard rock hammer systems utilize high-frequency cycle technology that aids in the faster removal of drill cuttings from the bit face while providing the smallest possible chips. This design also improves steering capabilities and causes less vibration in the drill string.
