An essential element of truss bolt installation requires machines to angle a hole in the top of approximately 39° to 45° from its vertical axis. Parameter which inherently effect the drill position are: height, width of truss, physical size of mast, and whether single or dual mast bolting is utilized. The combination of these facets govern the installation procedures required for the bolting cycle. The following illustration with written explanation will demonstrate this concept. See Figure #1. [ ] This model assumes certain fixed criteria which corresponds to a dual mast drill design and a set 41° drill angle. Using the derived formula, the maximum possible seam height for both masts to touch the bottom can be calculated for any given condition by substituting by the appropriate bolt spread distance. [ ] In a high seam application where the mast touching the bottom was considered a requirement, the proposed model demonstrates the advantage of single mast drilling. See Figure #2. [ ]
