Minnich says its ICAN system advances drilling technology by allowing users to diagnose problems and communicate with the manufacturer through a mobile device, eliminating costly service calls. The system is compatible with most large air compressors and runs on 24 volts.

The system also features remote control, using a joystick to control speed, steering and direction of travel. A dust collection on/off switch helps promote safety and production, says Minnich, and a new magnetic feed sensor stops the drill if the slider is not completely retracted due to drill steel becoming struck in the concrete.

A20.5-pound back pack vibrator unit will also be introduced at the show. Driven by a Honda 50 cc motor, the back pack is equipped with a removable throttle assembly, which enables operators to relocate the throttle for easy and comfortable operation. All core/casings and vibrator heads are interchangeable between all Minnich gas-powered and electric flex shaft units.
