Boart Longyear diamond bits, coring rods, casings, subs, wireline systems, reverse circulation and top hammer tooling are some of the most advanced tooling in the industry, specifically engineered for long life and high performance while boasting world-class safety features. Whether used for surface or underground, a wide variety of tooling is available for drilling applications including diamond core drilling for both shallow and deep hole, small and large diameter core, and wireline and conventional drilling methods.
To increase the effectiveness of drill crews, the company continually evaluates customer feedback and has the added advantage of monitoring the operations of its own drilling services teams. New tooling is tested in the field on the drill rigs at real drilling projects to maximize design and enhance productivity before bringing the technology to market.
Originally released more than 60 years ago, Boart Longyear’s genuine Q™ wireline core retrieval system revolutionized the diamond drilling industry. Next came the reliable strength of the RQ™ rod, and now being launched in 2018, Boart Longyear’s patented and innovative XQ™ wireline coring rods add even more value. XQ rods have proven to be stronger, last longer and go deeper, and are easier to make and break.
In the 1980s, Boart Longyear engineers developed the groundbreaking impregnated diamond coring bit. Continued innovation has since enabled the introduction of the Longyear™ diamond bit line - engineered to drill faster, last longer, and out-perform existing bit technology.
With Boart Longyear’s global manufacturing and distribution facilities, reliable drilling products can be delivered quickly to the job site no matter where in the world it is located.
