Drilling Grade Carbide Conical Teeth from STRATA are designed to withstand the toughest drilling conditions and provide the highest return on investment, according to Pengo Sales. All STRATA series teeth use proprietary grade carbide developed specifically for vertical drilling applications. This specific grade of tungsten carbide utilizes the same-size shape grain structure allowing for a very uniform pattern free of impurities, the company said.
This attention to high-quality uniformity ensures each STRATA tool has:
- Better high temperature wear resistance.
- Increased fracture toughness.
- Consistent wear characteristics in vertical drilling applications.
- Longer service life.
Most customers are seeing up to a 40 percent increase in linear drill footage production, according to the company. There is also a significant increase in the life cycle of the teeth. The new grade of carbide is lasting up to 40 percent longer in most applications. This means longer cycle times and less down time.
