Guided Boring Machine from Akkerman Inc.

The Guided Boring method (also know as pilot tube microtunneling) installs small diameter pipes with grade and alignment precision. The pipe installation involves a three-step process where launch and reception shafts are strategically located to minimize surface disruption. Three robust jacking frame configurations are available to meet contractor’s needs. Akkerman GBMs are used in conjunction with a theodolite guidance system to provide accurate pipe installation. Our GBM is extremely versatile and our customers continually surprise us with new applications. Akkerman manufactures GBMs for installation of pipe in the 4" - 48" OD range in displaceable soil under 50 blow count.
