In bench drilling large cost savings can be done. Even such limited hole deviation as 1-3 degrees from the precalculated hole direction, give unacceptable cost increases for drilling and blasting.
Shorter alignment time
Less drill meter
Lower consumption of explosives
Lower consumption of drill bits and steels
Less secondary blasting

With a water leveling system as sight the error can be up to 10 degrees depending on how the rig is located.
With Inklinator system with sight for inclinated holes, the angle is always correct aligned, no matter how the rig is located.
