Advanced application testing
One of the most valuable services we can offer our customers at the Drilling Application Center are our drilling application tests. A thrust and torque test uses the latest drill dynamometer to observe tool performance under different load conditions. A thermal test can be performed to show the behavior of the heat generated during the drilling process while revealing how it affects hole quality. The cutting tools test examines drill bits of varying geometries provided by customers or partners. Following this test, we provide full, transparent results and reports, along with the most productive cutting tool solutions for each drilling application. And finally, our coolant system test allows us to test and use different cooling systems or lubrication options to find the perfect coolant system for your drilling needs.
