TORQ-PIN is a revolutionary new torque monitoring and data logging system that can fit any type of drive head. Where conventional differential hydraulic pressure readings can be 30% - 50% out, the TORQ-PIN monitoring system offers true torque readings that are 98%+ accurate! TORQ-PIN works simply by replacing your current OEM drive head mounting pin(s). There is absolutely no loss of boom height which can occur with other syst                                                                            

TECHNOLOGY

Utilizing strain gages, internal CPU, RAM and other electronics, the TORQ-PIN can guarantee highly accurate, real time torque readings. An inclinometer built into the TORQ-PIN ensures that you maintain a consistent angle of insertion. The TORQ-PIN software records important data such as pile number, final torque, peak torque and elapsed time. This data can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet and transferred by e-mail or memory stick to your engineer/customer.

SAFETY

Consistent and real time monitoring of torque will prevent over-torque which can often result in pile failures (piles sheared or buckled). The inclinometer also removes the need (and associated risk) for personnel to stand beneath the drive head to assist the operator in maintaining a proper insertion angle.

History

Established in 1981 by founder and Director of Research & Development Stewart Wright, their first office, a phone booth at a Brisbane Caravan Park, provided earthmoving wearparts to local operators. A need quickly arose for the repairs and supply of drilling augers and a small factory was established in Brisbane Australia in 1982.
Digga were the pioneers of Pendulum drilling in Australia with the range of products growing steadily as the company focused on its customer’s needs, adding chain-driven drilling drive units in 1985. The desire for a more compact, low maintenance drilling drive led to the development of planetary-driven pendulum-mounted auger drives in 1987.
Frustrated with inconsistent supply & quality from imported gearbox components, the company invested in gear cutting technology in 1987 and today are the largest Australian gearbox manufacturers for the construction and earthmoving industry. Designing gearboxes up to 375,000ft-lbs for drilling & screw anchoring, Digga produce gearboxes for a full range of attachments and speciality applications including mining and waste industries.
With rapid growth and expansion, Digga opened additional manufacturing and distribution facilities in Sydney, New South Wales in 1989 and Melbourne, Victoria in 1992 to support an ever growing range of products and clientele.
In 1996 Digga started exporting to Europe and the USA, establishing a master distributor in the United Kingdom in 1998. The branch became company owned in 2004. Digga currently exports to over 50 countries, distributing product through 400 quality dealers worldwide.
The company's new state of the art 130,000sq/ft. facility in Brisbane, Australia opened in late 2005. The facility features 15 CNC multi-axis machines, 15 gear cutting and spindling machines, automatic steel cutting machines, 2 high definition plasma cutters, 350 ton 11 axis high precision brake presses, 6 robotic cells and state of the art fabrication facilities fitted with 26 Fronius high speed pulse welders, providing the latest in high production welding technology.
A facility to service America and Canada was opened in April 2013 as demand for Digga’s range of screw piling foundation and drilling drives grow. The 35,000 sq/ft. facility is centrally located in Dyersville, Iowa. Digga North America supplies single and two speed drilling drives, hand helds, anchor drives up to 375,000ft/lbs of torque, earth and rock augers, mounts, and drilling & anchoring accessories.
Digga is a multiple award-winning company having won the prestigious British Export Excellence Award in 2009, international design awards, amongst countless domestic and international design awards.
