Global Top 10 Drill Bit Manufacturers [2023]

Thursday, 14 December 23, 15:20

A drill bit is a special tool used to make a hole in any solid material.

Generally, a drill bit typically contains the body, point, and shank, with the drill body extending from the shank to outer corners of the cutting lips. While the shank refers to the part of a drill by which it is held and driven, the point is the cone-shaped cutting end of a drill.

Drill bits can drill through soft or hard materials and create different types of holes in diverse materials.

For example, a thick and sturdy masonry drill bit is used for drilling through concrete but drilling clean, smooth cuts in wood is done with a wood drill bit.

While drilling creates a smooth hole in a material, tapping (using threaded tools called “taps”) creates an internal thread in a hole so that a bolt or screw can be inserted in the workpiece.

In the O&G industry, a drill bit (also known as a “bit” or a “rock bit”) is a cutting tool used to cut or crush rock. Based on the primary cutting mechanism, O&G drill bits are classified into two main types—fixed cutter bits and rolling cutter bits.

Drill bit companies specialize in developing drill bits, which maximize ROP, provide a long service life, and are adaptable for several drilling applications.
