Brochure Drillstring Vibrations and Vibration Modeling
Vibration models are a valuable tool as part of an engineered approach.
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.
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.
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%.
