Information about our automatic casing drive adapter system Power Snap
No project is too small or too big
We are your partners for the renting of deep foundation equipment.
The renting of drilling rigs, oscillators and casing systems has been part of our core business since the company was founded in 2002. Our customers, who operate in the field of specialised deep foundation and fountain construction, come from all over Europe.
Our planning team will be at your disposal to assist you with your enquiries relating to machinery and drilling equipment requirements on the job site. No project is too small or too big for our rental park and our network!
Our workshop team is your competent partner for overhaul and repair of special deep foundation equipment. We also perform customer-specific conversions and new designs in a professional manner.
Located in the middle of the Ruhr Area, the Oberhausen site not only has ideal transport accessibility, it also has the required crane capacity (20t.) to ensure fast and safe loading.
Close cooperation with leading manufacturers, long-standing working experience and our continuous further development form is the professional basis for our work and your satisfaction.
Rotary drilling equipment
Along with special deep foundation equipment, you can also rent a drilling rig with an experienced machine operator. Our stock includes a Bauer BG 30 H as well as a Delmag RH 18. Exact specifications (transport dimensions, measurements) can be obtained from the respective data sheets.
casing & tools
We stock diameters from Ø 620 to Ø 2000 in our rental park. We deal exclusively with quality from Leffer.
We have the relevant tools for individual diameters and our augers, drilling buckets as well as core barrel are supplied by leading manufacturers.
All tools have a 200 x 200 mm Kelly box and are designed for use on modern high-performance machinery. As standard, our adapter are equipped with cardan connections and have a stable deflector ring to protect the feed cable.
Oscillators & Hydraulic clamps
If required, our rental park will supply you with Oscillators & Hydraulic clamps from Leffer. The oscillators are in KL design for connecting to a drilling rig. Operation is possible via the on-board hydraulic system of the drilling device or by means of a hydraulic aggregate which we also have in stock. The drilling device is mechanically connected via the standard Leffer linkage system.
The following oscillators are available:
VRM 118 KL – reductions for Ø 1000/880/800/620
VRM 150 KL – reductions for Ø 1300/1180/1000/880
VRM 200 KL – reductions for Ø 1800/1500
The hydraulic clamps can be rented with an electrically-driven aggregate if it is not possible to use the on-board hydraulics.
The following retaining clamps are available:
SPA 100 – reductions for Ø 880/800/750/620
SPA 118 – reductions for Ø 1000/880/620
SPA 150 – reductions for Ø 1300
SPA 200 – reductions for Ø 1800
Since November 1st 2018, we have been a contractual partner/trader for Betek (wear tools, tool systems and wear protection solutions) in the fields of road construction, mining, special deep foundation, agricultural technology, mineral extraction and the recycling industry.

automatic casing drive adapter system
As a result of the constant rise in demand for automatic
casing drive adapter systems and the associated advantages
in the field of occupational safety, wear reduction and
efficient operation, we have decided to develop our
own automatic casing drive adapter system for rent.
The result is a robust and universal automatic
casing adapter, which can be fitted to all drilling
rigs with cardan connections. Further advantages of our automatic casing drive adapter Power Snap are:
- Immediate deployment without preliminary setup time- Immediate deployment without preliminary setup time
- Self-sufficient system
- Fast replacement of wearing parts on the jobsite
- Battery life 5 – 7 days
- Emergency system
- Easy cleaning
On February 14th 2018, the patent with the European patent number 3163009 was
issued for the POWER SNAP automatic casing drive adapter system.
The automatic casing drive adapter Power Snap is a mechanically/electrically driven
Mechanism: automatic locking
The GMT casing drive adapter is always locked mechanically/automatically when the adapter socket is fitted to the casing nipple through the spring pre-loaded locking
cylinder. Drilling thus always takes place over the locked bolts. Unlocking is carried out by
means of a filled hydraulic piston accumulator, which is controlled by an electrical radio
remote control. During unlocking, the radio remote control can only be activated by the
operator. Unlocking activates the sensors and switches on LED warning lights.
If all automatic locking bolts are in a locked state, the sensors switch off the LED warning
The POWER SNAP is self-sufficient, i.e. the hydraulic energy required for the piston
accumulator is generated by fitting the adapter on the casing using two thrust
rods with pump cylinders. Power is supplied by means of chargeable 24V batteries.
