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.
Slipping and falling can lead to injured backs, hands and fingers. The less time your operators spend on changing drill bits, the better. Switching to Powerbit X improves work safety, as the drill bits last very long. You eliminate almost all drill bit changes before end of life.
Drill bits require logistics: Inbound deliveries, main warehouse, underground stock, discard and disposal, and grinding workshop. Fewer drill bit changes mean less need for transportation – good for your staff and for the environment. If you control your operations remotely, with fewer people in the mine, reducing drill bit changes is even more critical.
Regrinding involves a lot of logistics, and operating a grinding machine is tough work and it creates waste that needs to be taken care of. Using Powerbit X means your drill bits will last significantly longer and need no regrinding. When a Powerbit X drill bit is finally worn out it is time for recycling, not regrinding.
