A Brief Overview of Well and Mining Drill Bits

Mining professionals need tough, high-quality mining drill bits because these are boring tools that must penetrate rock and other hard materials. The types of mining bits manufactured and sold by Border City Tools are ideal for mining, tunneling, quarrying, well-drilling, and geographical exploration.

Here are a few of the most common mining bits.

Tri-Cone Bits: These mining drill bits feature three toothed cones, and the teeth on each cone push against each other to make it possible to drill through solid rock or earth. Driven by a weight-on-bit (WOB), a tri-cone bit is pulled by the rotary action of the bit head.

Button Bits: These conical bits may have head configurations that are convex, concave, or flat. They also feature polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) inserts. Therefore, button bits are frequently referred to as PDC bits, and they are typically used in directional drilling operations.

Cross Bits: Often called chisel bits, these bits have fixed heads and hardened steel or carbide blades. They feature two or more of these blades that cross at the center of the bit, and the blades taper down toward the functional cutting surface.

Anchor Bits: These important mining bits are used to drill pilot holes to insert roof bolts, which support surrounding rocks and prevent cave-ins on worksites. Anchor bits are normally fixed-head winged bits and the offer fast cutting action for drilling holes that are half an inch thick or more.
