Shank Adapter

Shank adapter, the role of it in rock drilling is to directly bear the impact energy and torque of the rock drill, and is used to transfer the energy from drill rig to drill rod. One end of shank adapter is connected to drill rig, and another end is connected to drill rod, so that the energy of drill rig can be transmitted to drill bit, and finally achieve the purpose of drilling.

The specification and hardness of the shank adaptor have a great influence on the rock drilling speed and the life of the rock drill. The hardness of the shank adapter should be appropriate, the service life is short if it is too soft, the piston is vulnerable to damage if it is too hard. Litian shank adaptor has accurate specifications, smooth surface, suitable hardness, the cross-section is perpendicular to the axis, and closely coincides with rock drill sleeve. 

Our shank adapters are suitable for various brands of rock drills, such as Atlas Copco, Sandvik, Furukawa, Montabert, Ingersoll-Rand, Tamrock, etc., and it also can be designed according to customer needs.

Shank Adapter Product Advantages

High-quality steel

Our shank adapters use high-quality alloy structural steel as the raw material, undergoes overall carburizing treatment, and adopt special CNC machine tool processing equipment and processing flow to ensure the processing quality of splines, water holes and other details, which can meet the requirements of drilling harder rock layers and have a longer service life.


Advanced manufacturing technology

Our shank adapters adopt advanced thread manufacturing technology and advanced surface treatment technology, and are manufactured according to precise tolerances. They have the characteristics of tight connection, good energy transmission effect, strong wear resistance, and easy disassembly. Our shank adapters are uniformly heat-treated and scientifically straightened with precision instruments to ensure straightness and anti-irritability.

Strict quality control

All the shank adapters are strictly controlled to ensure that they have satisfactory high quality.
