Locating Systems

Locating Systems

Electronic locating devices are used to guide a drilling tool along a prescribed path consisting of a shallow arc when using horizontal directional drilling to install utilities such as telecommunicaties, power, water, sewer, gas, oil, product pipelines and environmental remediation casings.

Vermeer and Digital Control Incorporated (DCI) help keep you on the leading edge of technology by offering a variety of locating options designed to meet the needs of varying applications. For more information regarding locating systems, visit the DCI website.

Atlas Bore Planner

Vermeer ATLAS BORE PLANNER® bore planning software system is your key to increased productivity. Designed to work with a wide range of locating systems, the patent-pending ATLAS BORE PLANNER software helps contractors, engineers, and utility companies get the job done right the first time. The ATLAS BORE PLANNER software increases boring accuracy by providing a graphic visualization of the job, helping a crew see and perform the job from start to finish.

By choosing drill stem diameter and length, desired bore path depth, desired minimum cover, diameter and allowable bend radius of the product pipe, the software plots a proposed bore path. The bore path is provided in two formats, one screen showing a top and side view, the other showing a report that lists the numerical depth and pitch of each drill stem.
