Halco USA Open House Event 12th June 2014

Halco Rock Tool’s team of drilling experts are running a series of specialist training sessions to meet the drilling industry’s growing demand for knowledge on how to optimise your drilling performance...
  Every drilling project offers its own unique challenges and in the current ever increasingly cost conscious climate; each and every one deserves to be accessed on three critical points to ensure the optimum combination is achieved. These include:
  • Choosing the right drill rig...
  • Sourcing the correct package of drilling consumables...
  • Deploying the correct drilling tactics...
With today’s broad range of drilling rig technologies is important to fully understand what each option can offer and how they could work for your individual site conditions, otherwise you could be throwing good money away from the start. Drill rigs often represent a critical investment for any company, so making the correct choice is paramount.
Once you have selected the best drill rig for your specific needs, the next major step is to ensure it continuously operates at its maximum efficiency. To achieve this you need to identify the best package of consumables for your site and rig; as well as establishing a reliable and cost efficient supply chain. Major advances in drilling consumables technology, have occurred throughout the last 40 years, with the extent of the options still growing at a rapid rate.
Arguably the most import factor occurs only after you have selected your drill rig and consumables package. Ensuring your operators and support teams know how to get the most from your equipment will determine whether or not your drilling activities are a success or not.
The next event is scheduled to be held at Halco Rock Tools state of the art facility in Sherman, North Texas on 12th June 2014. Key activities of the event are to include:
  • Reception & Meet the Halco Team
  • Behind the scenes tour of a modern DTH hammer & drill bit factory
  • Technical Training Sessions
  • Preventing Downtime
  • Reducing Your Drilling Costs
  • New Product Developments
  • Texan BBQ Lunch
  • Q & A Sessions
  • Evening Entertainment
