At Smith Bits we work with clients to fully understand the specifics of each individual drilling environment. Using the IDEAS integrated drillbit design platform, we optimize the designs and perfect the performance of each drill bit before it’s built, helping operators avoid the delay and expense of a more traditional trial-and-error approach.
Our portfolio features the industry’s widest range of rock destruction methods to match the operational requirements of drilling any formation. The quality standards of our development and manufacturing processes result in a bit that performs as expected every time.
IDEAS enables application-specific bit design. This system takes into account every element of the BHA, analyzing how bits perform within operating parameters and well conditions. Operators are given full, in-depth reports that result in optimized drill bits and less drilling risk.
The i-DRILL engineered drilling system design uses predictive modeling to identify solutions that minimize vibrations and stick/slip during drilling operations, and optimize BHA performance for a given environment. Various combinations of drillbit options, drilling assembly components, drillstring designs, surface parameters, component placement, formation characteristics, and overbalance pressures can be examined.
Polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) cutters improve drillbit performance for dynamic stability in vertical and directional wells.
Tungsten carbide insert (TCI) and milled tooth (MT) bits are continually enhanced with new materials technology to provide the highest level of drilling performance.
Withstand rigorous drilling conditions, and effectively encounter soft formations.
A unique, highly reliable retention system prevents loss of bit head in the hole, while tough diamond-enhanced inserts increase the footage drilled and lower your cost per foot.
Stable PDC bits, with drillout capability, include both pilot and reamer sections. Quad-D bits fulfill the two requirements of borehole enlargement—drift and drill—and provide hole opening below installed casing or liner sections.
Drillbit designs for motor and rotary steerable applications.
