The IMPACTS™ software suite which consists of four proprietary softwares, each designed to enhance the designers ability to develop drill bits for specific applications.
DIG-IT allows bit engineers to analyze how bit cutting parts as well as non-cutting parts interact with the rock formation in a full 3D framework.
A powerful tool to characterize formation lithologies and mechanical constraints from customer supplied E-logs and drilling logs.
SPOT is the Varel PDC drillbit design software. It allows bit engineers to optimize teir cutting structure by maximizing bit efficiency and durability according to real operating conditions.
VIBES allows engineers to simulate drillstring vibrations with a particular focus on the drillbit.
