Specialty Bits

Specialty bits are designed for your application based on input data from you. Bit body materials range from matrix blends to steel bodies and can be tailored for the required drilling challenge. Natural diamond, diamond impregnated HIP segments, Thermally Stable Polycrystalline (TSP), and Polycrystalline Diamond Compact (PDC) cutting elements can be used. Hole openers, core bits, and side track bits are just a few examples of specialty items.

Features / Benefits

Natural Diamond
Effective in highly abrasive formations on motors where impregnated bits are not economically practical.

Diamond Impregnated HIP Segments
Undergo a sintering process to achieve reduced porosity and are then placed in the face of the bit in specific patterns determined by SPOT-DN.

Thermally Stable Polycrystalline (TSP)
Thermally stable polycrystalline bits are effective in abrasive, homogenous formations where a motor can be run to increase the bits performance.

Polycrystalline Diamond Compact (PDC)
Superior proprietary cutter testing methods provide the best Force3 cutter for any challenge
