The Drill Assist System offered by Murphy by Enovation Controls is a user-friendly system that reduces cost of drilling.
Drills play an important role in quarries and at mine sites. A basic water well rig is often the first step to any construction site. It is therefore a pressing need to improve drilling efficiency, utilisation, control and give the operator a simple and ergonomic interface that makes his job easier. This is where the Drill Assist System (DAS) steps in.
DAS - an OEM System
The DAS is a rugged, robust, accurate but most importantly a user-friendly system that operators love working with. The system reduces cost of drilling, helps the planner to optimise operations while constantly recording the work done. Starting from the basic DAS-3 right up to the DAS-7, the system offers a wide range of options that Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can choose from.
A well-designed display user interface, engine and transmission safety, hydraulic interlocks and control, incorporating rugged and reliable sensors, improves the way the drill is managed and controlled. It simplifies control for the operator and plays an important role in enhancing the equipment's overall performance.
'We work closely with the drill rig manufacturers to incorporate control systems customised to their equipment. This ensures that the solution they offer to their customer has their branding, their touch, and most importantly, the intelligence they wanted to add. This ensures they are creating a product differentiation in the marketplace,' underlines Harpreet Singh Wahan, General Manager, Sales & Marketing - India, Murphy by Enovation Controls.
What options does the DAS add to drilling equipment?
The Murphy advantage
The DAS is modular and most importantly flexible solution for the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) to offer the features they want. Drill manufacturers should use systems that are customised for their equipment. They need not have to use and pay for a generic system that is made for the aftermarket or the end user. Murphy offers Displays, I/O modules, Hydraulic Controls, Sensors and solutions built for the specific applications, and integrates them into custom solutions based on what the OEM wants their equipment to do. This includes machine controls to perform complex tasks with electronics built to work in rugged conditions. Very high on priority is the 'Local Touch' factor, so Murphy set up an office in Pune for customising and integrating OEM equipment, with all programs and configurations made and tested right here in India.
