What are the benefits of PDC bits ?
What makes a PDC bit, its features and benefits, and what applications these bits work well in.
First of all, it’s important to notice the important role of Polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) CUTTERS.
PDC Cutters enhance the performance of PDC drill bits, making them dynamically stable across a wide range of demanding vertical and directional drilling applications.
Polycrystalline diamond cutter is a unique material posessing high strength, hardness and toughness.
This makes it ideal for numerous material removal (cutting) processes.
PDCs are manufactured using diamond, tungsten carbide, high pressure and heat.
The diagram below shows the process.
