First advanced cutter family specifically created to address the drilling environment

Global drilling applications are complex. Characterized by interbedded formations, challenging lithologies, and changing rock strengths, they also encounter hard and abrasive environments. These demanding drilling environments and diverse well designs require a specific, customized polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) cutter platform to stay sharper than other cutters, and to drill faster and longer. 

We develop customized cutter solutions to properly balance the abrasion and toughness needed in each application, and to optimize in-bit placement of each of our cutter technologies to deliver superior performance on each run.

Ongoing cutter development continues to challenge the traditional abrasion vs. toughness tradeoffs, leading to a thicker, stronger diamond with added thermal stability. To date, field data shows that our latest North American cutter technology delivers a 21% improvement in ultimate load and a 64% decrease in wear rate. Combined with enhanced thermal stability, these cutters demonstrate significantly reduced spalling and broken-tooth dull conditions across multiple field applications.
