Rock Drill reduces operator exposure to noise and vibration.

May 23, 2014

Designed to suppress noise and vibration, S250-M3 improves drilling production while decreasing fatigue regarding operators' ears, hands, and feet. Main airflow cylinder channel and exhaust allow efficient actuation of drill, and design drives more energy to face of rock. Vibration level also helps reduce components wear, promoting extended operation. There are 3 primary variations — jackleg, stoper, and sinker — to match specific needs, and 22 and 25 mm drill hex chuck ends are available. Read More

DTH Hammers and Bits are designed for down-the-hole drilling.

May 8, 2014

Designed to increase productivity in reverse circulation (RC) drilling and conventional down-the-hole (DTH) drilling, BLH™ series includes valved BLH5 and BLH3 hammers as well as valve-less BLH1. Bits are available to support all BLH hammers. BLH5 delivers balanced operation with minimized vibration as well as optimized productivity in various ground conditions, and BLH3 adds steel valve system. With minimal moving parts, BLH1 achieves balance between simplicity and performance. Read More

Drill Control Interface operates underground rigs.

March 15, 2013

With fully electronic drill control interface (DCI), drillers can operate LM™ series underground drill rig and rod handler at safe distance. One-touch rod feed and pull functionality allows operator to efficiently trip rods, while wireline drum counter enables semi-automatic descent and retrieval of wireline. Incorporating CANBUS technology for self-monitoring, DCI provides immediate feedback of drilling conditions and data logging for reporting and analysis. Read More

Surface Drilling Roller Latch decreases wireline trip time.

March 14, 2013

Intended for surface drilling market, Quick Descent™ Roller Latch™ features Quick Descent Head Assembly with free flow design. Hollow spindle, latch body, integrated check valve, axial grooves, and tapered profile optimize flow of fluid directly from inner tube through head assembly. Design reduces fluid drag against Quick Descent Roller Latch for increased tripping speed. Also, roller latch technology eliminates low strength and jamming associated with swing-out latch mechanisms. Read More

Casing Shoe suits exploration and geo-technical applications.

March 14, 2013

Used to drill through overburden until bedrock is reached, CSUMX™ Casing Shoe can cut through various ground formations ranging from 1–9 on Mohs hardness scale. Patented UMX metallurgical formula enables shoe to stay sharp through crown matrix, which wears slowly during drilling to expose new, large synthetic diamonds. Razorcut™ design optimizes tracking and balance in hole, while Twin-Taper™ waterways optimize surface flushing to keep face of casing shoe clear. Read More

Reaming Shell is engineered for extended lifespan.

March 13, 2013

Designed to achieve straighter boreholes while maximizing number of meters drilled, RSUMX™ features thermally stable diamond (TSD) pins on leading edge sized to maximize diamond volume in high wear zones. Size of active pad surface area and hardness of impregnated diamond matrix also lend to operational efficiency. Ground OD and use of 25/35 synthetic diamonds enhance wear resistance, maximizing life span. Design promotes directional control by stabilizing bit in borehole. Read More
