Has it landed on Mars? The ‘Hobbit’ Scout Drilling Rig is the brainchild of Nautilus Minerals. The seafloor drill can effectively land and recover a core sample from many meters under the seabed up to 3km below the surface. How do you maximise sampling at these depths? Practical Engineering Australia Engineering designed the carousel assembly and Geneva wheel indexing system to feed the rods during the automated sampling process. Designing aluminium structures working in these conditions is challenging and thank you to Nautilus Minerals and Anthony Manocchio and his team for the opportunities.
