Auger Drilling
Auger Drilling or jacking is a trenchless technique for laying pipes horizontally under the ground, for example under a road, railway or waterway. First two pits are dug: the entry pit and exit pit. The pipe is then pressed from the entry pit to the receiving pit by hydraulic or pneumatic force.

The feature of the Microtunneling is the closed front of the first tubular element of the drill by means of a drill shield. Like an Auger drilling, a Microtunneling starts from an entry pit. With a pressing installation, the drilling shield is pushed away by means of hydraulic augers.
