Improve safety with fewer drill bit changes
Changing drill bits is a safety risk. The diamond protective layer of Powerbit X gives the drill bits longer service life, which means fewer changes and less exposure to danger for operators.
Boost productivity by drilling without interruption
Powerbit X lets you realize the full potential of remotely and automatically controlled production.
Use diamonds to cut your CO2 emissions
The extremely hard surface of Powerbit X makes it possible to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions per drilled meter – by up to 90%.
Time to change the industry again
Epiroc has pioneered the world of hard materials for drilling many times. Now we are introducing drill bits with diamond-coated buttons.
"We were getting 7 meters or so out of a standard bit. The Epiroc Powerbit X achieved 400 meters, which is exceptional in this ground!"
"We almost eliminated bit changes during an operator’s shift - opening opportunities for us to continue our automation journey."
"The consumption of bits has reduced by about 75% - equal to thousands of drill bits per year."
"With the first bit we were able to drill for up to 11 days without changing bit. This is a game-changer."
