UDS International makes and supplies high-grade fixed cutter and replaceable cutter hole openers, suitable for working in a wide range of ground conditions on oil and gas, waterwell and HDD drilling projects and for mining exploration and production applications.
The cutters are precision-machined from a single-piece body. Open path sections optimize flow rates, and jets with replaceable nozzles continuously clean the tool’s cutting structure, maintaining a clean tool area to increase penetration.
Quality seals and bearings are used to give the cutter superior reliability, and the tools’ advanced design and robust construction allow drilling for longer intervals.
The cutters are also fitted with a replaceable front stabilizer ring made from TCI with diamond coating (PDC) for significantly improved wear resistance.
The cutters are held in place using a unique cutter retention system, improving safety of the overall drilling operation.
Each tool can be made to fit any drilling machine. UDS keeps a range of cutter components in stock, adding these to the tailor-made body of the Hole Opener, ensuring the fast delivery of a solution that meets your needs.
All UDS Hole Opener connections are made from alloy-hardened steel and to the relevant API standards.
