i-Design Interactive Drillbit Design Customization | Schlumberger


Interactive drillbit design customization

Collaborate to develop efficient bit designs
Bits are customized using firsthand knowledge from previous runs—which ensures high-quality bit designs
Cut design and delivery time in half
All changes using i-Design customization are preapproved, so successful designs are sent directly to manufacturing
Design from anywhere
Simulations can be run on site or in the office, enabling you to work remotely or acquire instant feedback

Instantly customize and simulate your drillbit design, anywhere

i-Design interactive drillbit design customization brings the bit design process to you, with Smith Bits technical representatives running real-time simulations from the IDEAS integrated dynamic design and analysis platform in your office or at the wellsite. The on-site access enables you to receive instant feedback on how your design changes affect the rock and cutter interface and bit performance in real time.

Develop high-quality bit designs through on-site collaboration

Bit customization is a collaborative process between you and your Smith Bits representative, enabling you to develop high-quality drillbit solutions by contributing first-hand knowledge gained from your previous bit runs. Changes to the cutting structure can be modeled and tested in real-time simulations to identify the best configuration and blade count for the targeted formations.

Cut design and delivery time of customized PDC bit in half

i-Design customization lets you see the results of iterative cutting structure changes in real time and improve bit designs to maximize performance. When the design process is completed, the new bit design is loaded directly into the manufacturing queue. An automated tracking system provides e-mail updates as the bit moves through key points, enabling you to track your bit’s manufacturing progress. Because all changes using i-Design customization are preapproved, the new design is placed directly into the queue, reducing the time it takes to deliver a customized PDC bit to the rig site by as much as 50%.
