Boart Longyear Introduces GTUMX Diamond Coring Bits for Conventional Drilling

Boart Longyear, the world’s leading integrated exploration drilling products and services provider, has launched the GTUMX™ diamond coring bit as the latest addition to the their award-winning Ultramatrix™ (UMX™) line.

The GTUMX is designed for shallow holes and conventional drilling for both exploration and geo-technical applications. The ability to drill faster with high penetration rates and to outperform existing bit technology in a wide range of ground formations makes the GTUMX ideal for customers seeking an affordable alternative to their current bit selection.

“Boart Longyear is excited to introduce the GTUMX diamond core bits into the marketplace, especially South Africa,” said Matthew Baird, global product manager for Boart Longyear. “The GTUMX bits are ideal for shallow holes and conventional drilling. This allows our customers to be very competitive with a bit of true value at a reasonable price.”

Boart Longyear will launch an AXT size GTUMX bit first in the South Africa region. This will be followed by additional bit size releases and expansion into the Asia Pacific, Europe and Latin America regions.

GTUMX diamond coring bits features the Boart Longyear UMX formula. UMX bits use an advanced metallurgical formula that is impregnated with large synthetic diamonds. The formula optimizes high penetration capabilities with longer bit life and allows the GTUMX to turn easily from one ground formation to another.

The GTUMX also features the unique Razorcut™ design on the face of the bit. This speeds up exposure of the diamonds and enables the bit to begin cutting right out of the box. The wide tapered waterways dramatically improve surface flushing and cutting while reducing wear on the inner-diameter of the bit, particularly in broken, abrasive conditions.
