Atlas Copco updates ROC Manager surface drilling software

Atlas Copco announces availability of ROC Manager 3.0 planning and administration software, replacing ROC Manager 2.0 for SmartROC drill rigs. In addition to creating drill plans, the new software will also produce production and fleet management reports, including the ability to create reports to compare all SmartROC drill rigs in a fleet.

“In general terms, the software upgrade will allow our customers to plan service based on actual needs and to manage individual units of their fleet based on verifiable data,” said Maurice Hunter, business line manager—Surface Drilling Equipment.

Data provided by ROC Manager 3.0 includes

  • Drilled versus planned holes
  • Accumulated hours for engine, percussion and drilled meters, among other data
  • Average penetration rate
  • Meters per engine hour
  • Percussion time by engine time
  • Operator access to the latest production planning

The software is composed of four primary integrated functions: (1) Creating work orders and drill plans; (2) presentation and analysis of log files; (3) monitoring of work performed by rigs; (4) a report generator.

The drill plan created in the office by ROC Manager 3.0 may be transferred to the rig by USB device or wirelessly via Rig Remote Access (RRA). Log files may be transmitted from the rig to the office in the same manner.
