Abstract

DMT-Gesellschaft für Forschung und Prüfung mbH and Schwing Hydraulik Elektronik GmbH & Co. have developed an automatically targetable drilling system (ZBE) giving absolute accuracy in vertical drilling (of importance in mining, tunnelling and rock engineering). This was comprehensively tested and has since been used with success on numerous sites in Germany and elsewhere. This project aims to develop ZBE for drilling in any direction. This requires the incorporation of a navigation system to transmit the signals needed to guide ZBE in azimuth and inclination. The existing data transmission system and various other components of ZBE are being enhanced, extended or replaced to improve the reliability and availability of the whole system.
