Viper product introduction.

US Synthetic diamond viper and Wasp bits simply outlast all other product on the market, significantly outperforming tungsten carbide dust hogs.

Increase Tonnage and Production

  • Drill more than 100-300 times longer
  • Penetrate hard rock faster
  • Reduce thrust requirements by 50% to increase drill steel life (6x) and to eliminate extensive wear on equipment
  • Reduce respirable dust by approximately 78% and noise levels by approximately 10 decibels
  • Significantly reduce equipment downtime by eliminating the ongoing need to change out and replace worn or broken carbide dust hogs

“A 200 to 600 times increase in bit life should reduce injuries occurring during bit replacement and other activities related to roof-bolting operation. (Special Report, Breakthrough in Roof-bolt Drill Bit Technology, U.S. Bureau of Mines).”

Improved Diamond Bits

US Synthetic Ceramic (Diamond) Wet Bits are new and revolutionary for improving the efficiency and mining costs associated with drilling.

Benefits of Diamond Bits:

  • Outperform carbide wet drilling by 100 to 300 times longer
  • Increase rate of penetration
  • Replace percussion drilling
  • Reduce drill maintenance
  • Lower drill steel cost by reducing thrust requirements and extensive wear
  • Significantly reduce equipment downtime by eliminating the ongoing
    need to change out and replace worn
    or broken carbide wet bits

“The cutting edge of a PDC bit remains relatively sharp throughout its life. (Optimum Thrust, Cutting Speed, and Water Pressure for Tungsten Carbide and Polycrystalline Diamond Compact Roof-Bolt Drill Bits, U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1995.)”

Wet bit

The advanced technology in US Synthetic reamers and bit seats substantially decrease bolting time-allowing operators to maintain continuous production output.

US Synthetic Bits:

  • Decrease bolting time
  • Maintain the gauge of the hole
  • Adapts to most round or hex tubular drill steel extension rods
  • Eliminate hole rifling and irregularities
  • Increase durability and wear resistance
  • Fewer stuck drill steel to fight
  • Easier and faster to install resin cartridges, standard bolts and cable bolts

“Miners were quick to accept PDC bits, since they reduced by more than 50 times the necessity of replacing worn out bits. (Special Report, Breakthrough in Roof-bolt Drill Bit Technology, U.S. Bureau of Mines.)”

Reamer

US Synthetic Mining High-Grade Industrial Drill Steel is designed for exceptional strength using high-grade alloy.

Increase durability and lower mining cost: 

  • Remains straight under high thrust conditions
  • Lasts approximately 20-times longer than traditional drill steel
  • Delivers excellent fatigue strength to attain longer life
  • Assembled with noise dampening materials
  • Incorporated into a universal, easy-to-use shank
  • Adapts to most round or hex tubular drill steel extension rods

“…by reducing the number of operations a worker must perform, PDC bits may significantly reduce the number of non-fatal accidents resulting in lost-time injuries, associated with roof-drilling operations. (Special Report, Breakthrough in Roof-bolt Drill Bit Technology, U.S. Bureau of Mines).”

Drill steel

US Synthetic Mining is dedicated to supporting our customers with easy-to-use couplers and custom-designed tooling.

Delivered quality to dupport consistent production:

  • Standard couplings that adapt to most round or hex tubular drill steel
  • Unique threaded couplings for secure connections
  • Highest quality materials
  • Custom-designed applications
  • Dedicated engineering support

“PDC bits were operating at one-half the thrust and rotational speed required by the WC-Co bits. (Special Report, Breakthrough in Roof-bolt Drill Bit Technology, U.S. Bureau of Mines).”

Couplers

Reduce downtime

Today’s mining operations focus on producing the largest amount of tonnage at the lowest possible cost. To meet ever-increasing production demands, mine operators must keep their equipment running with the latest technology. They simply cannot afford to wait on roof-bolting crews using outdated equipment and techniques while continuous miners sit idle. The production challenge for many mine operators can be directly traced to carbide bits, which have been used for decades. These bits easily dull while drilling and need to be replaced frequently-slowing roof bolters and limiting production. This ongoing maintenance problem slows the mining process, decreases production, and creates safety concerns as miners scramble under unsupported areas to change out roof bolting bits so mining operations can continue.
