The Geometrix 4D shaped line of PDC cutters offer unique geometries to traditional cylinder cutters to help deliver maximized drilling efficiency at the cutter rock interface and increased cooling to the cutter.
Geometrix shaped cutters are customized for different applications to provide solutions for chip flow, friction, and thermal degradation. Advantages include:
Designed to cut through hard, brittle rock types, such as carbonates. It pre-fractures rock, improves fluid flow, and minimizes cuttings build up on the cutter’s face.
Features a ridged diamond table surface making this multi-planed cutter shape best suited for high energy drilling in interbedded shales, where it circumferentially pre-fractures rock.
Shaped for high-energy drilling in shale and ductile rocks. Its multiple ridges on the face of the cutter create a fluid boundary layer between the cutter and ribbon/chip for more efficient chip evacuation and aid in thermal dissipation by increasing the cutter’s surface area.
The Machete full cylinder scribe cutter axially pre-fractures rock through point loading in hard, brittle applications. The geometry improves thermal stability by remaining sharper during the drilling process.
The Hatchet cone cutter is the newest member of the Geometrix family and delivers improved efficiency and durability in the cone of a drill bit. It is designed to overcome existing constraints of PDC bit-cutting mechanics in the cone area.
