Auger Boring

Auger Boring

Horizontal auger boring, also referred to as jack-and-bore is a trenchless method to install steel casing from a launch shaft to a reception shaft with excavation done via a rotating cutterhead driven by a series of augers inside the casing pipe.  The excavated material is removed through the auger string that is powered by the auger boring machine in the launch shaft.

Akkerman pilot tubes guided auger boring systems not only adapt to all leading manufacturers of auger boring equipment, but we also produce all-in-one packages for guided or un-guided casing installations.  For more information, please contact our knowledgeable representatives today.
