Sandvik India: Reinforcing Efficiency and Accuracy

Sandvik DT820 Tunnelling Drill - India's first Made in India Jumbo

A tunnelling project is a race against time and costs. Getting it right from the very beginning requires a thorough knowledge and experience, along with the right equipment. At Sandvik, we have been providing drilling solutions for more than 50 years, and have created cutting-edge technologies that meet the construction needs of modern day tunnelling projects.

The Sandvik 800 series DT820, a twin boom electrohydraulic semi-automatic tunnelling Jumbo, provides both efficiency and accuracy during excavation. It is designed to be fast, accurate, and user-friendly, and is known to produce results of the highest quality with the lowest operational costs.

Customer feedback on DT820 by one of our esteemed customers M/S KSR Group, Hyd

KSR Group, a Sandvik customer for the last 12 years, is engaged in tunnelling jobs, material handling, granite quarrying, and in variousconstruction activities since the last 30 years. In 2022, the company placed an order for 2 units of DT820 for their East Coast Rail Project, located at Aruku in the Visakhapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh. Sandvik India supplied its first made in India unit to KSR Group from its Hinjewadi factory in January 2023.

As per our customer, the machine has already clocked over 800hours; it has helped complete a 135-meter railway tunnel with all the safety precautions in place, including pipe roofing, lattice girder, and rock bolt. Since the last 7 months, the machine is working well without facing any issues, and our customer is completely satisfied with its performance.

DSI ground support making tunnelling safer, economical & efficient

DSI is the latest division within Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology (SMRT) globally, and has started working in India also. The division provides rock and roof support products for mines and tunnels and also caters to the demand from TBM tunnels for specialized products like sealing rings and support systems.

Tunnel construction is one of the most difficult, challenging, and at the same time fascinating work in civil engineering. Modern tunnels are becoming longer and often feature larger cross-sections. With increased complexities in geological conditions, the need for ground support is of prime importance. With over 160 years of our proven innovative systems, Sandvik is well poised to support construction of tunnelling by delivering safe, efficient, and cost-effective solutions. Our global product and service portfolio includes bolts, injection and sealing systems, fore-poling systems, passive support, as well as special rock support products, all of which are being used in countless projects worldwide. DSI provides a complete range of ground control solutions - all from a single source.

Pre-support (before excavation)

Pre-support comprises various support elements that are selected depending on the conditions encountered. These elements are installed from the actual face in the advance direction into the not yet excavated ground, where they serve to create a stable and safe working area when excavation starts. Additional drainage measures stabilize the ground by improving its properties.

Post-support (complete range)

Underground excavation is typically supported by radial bolts, reinforced shotcrete, and, if required, by steel arches. While shotcrete lining provides passive support, radial bolts stabilize and reinforce the surrounding ground and create a so-called supporting arch in the area. The main intention is to increase the capacity of the ground with respect to shear load and tension.

Bolts are an essential part of the primary support in tunnel construction and must also be selected carefully so that they are completely suited for the expected ground conditions.
