posted by the Epiroc Exploration & OreBody Solutions team

November 25, 2021

If you want to learn a bit more about how reaming shells and core bits work together and gain a good overall view of the diamond tools used in core drilling, then this video is for you. It provides an excellent visual representation of the core drilling process, and focuses on core bits, reaming shells and drilling parameters.


Reaming shells don’t get as much attention as core bits but they play an important role in achieving good drilling performance. Drilling parameters are also important, but they can be tough to understand. The video will explain how to read the label on a bit and how choosing the right core bit depends not only on ground formation, but on other factors such as the parameters that will be used during the drilling process.

We have a series of videos that cover all aspects of the drilling process as well as blogs, and guides that can answer your drilling questions. Keep in mind that if you want the personal touch, you can always contact our technical support team. They have a wealth of experience that they can share with you so you can improve your drilling performance. Our goal is to make drillers’ lives easier and accelerate the transoformation of our industry.
