Design Module

01Ensure Control & Safety

Safety is critical on site. DataBlast offers key features for design validations including Burden Check calculations providing automatic face burden distance calculations, that allow for quick and easy design modifications.

02Intuitive User Interface

You will be able to easily adopt the system as its intuitive tool-sets are designed specifically by Drill and Blast Engineers, for Drill and Blast Engineers. The design module features specific CAD tools and automatic hole projections to help you spend a lot less time designing, and more time optimising.

03Halve Your design time

Simple pre-design environment allows for the quick release of progressive drill patterns. DataBlast empowers you to cut down on design time by creating master design files for entire benches and allows progressive releases as survey data or planning schedules become available.

04Take Control Of Your Data

DataBlast lets you take proper control of your data and tools, allowing for easy, flexible data management when exporting critical data. In the design module, all Excel, Word and PDF approved checklists are housed centrally in a simple tree navigation system.
