In the LaserBond range of down-the-hole hammers, bits and consumables, we have brought together a quarter of a century of research and understanding into the mechanical effects of component wear and designed, developed and manufactured – from the ground up – a totally new approach to DTH consumables.
The LBH range is surface engineered for wear resistance and delivers more than three times longer life, overall cost savings around 7.5%, a tangible decrease in the rate of abrasive wear and extended depths – up to 10,000 metres – before change-out.
The LBH range works better, works longer, works smarter and works cheaper. It is safer, more productive and environmentally sustainable.
Lower Total Drilling Costs
The costs associated with a drilling operation are high and getting higher. LaserBond DTH hammer drills, bits and components have been surface engineered to last – up to 3 times longer. And that cuts downtime. And replacement parts. And 60% saving on DTH hammer cost. To lower total drilling costs by more than 7.5%.
More Drilling Time
LaserBond DTH drill components are surface engineered to work longer. Working longer means less time lost through change-outs. And that means more drilling time.
Higher Penetration Rate
The unique design of the LaserBond DTH hammer focuses the impact energy transfer to significantly increase penetration rates. They are simple yet powerful, mechanical, surface engineered and tested drilling components that hit harder and faster. For longer.
2.1 New DTH Hammer development achieves three times longer life. > read more
In Down-The-Hole (DTH) drilling the hammer unit is a relatively large pneumatic powered devise that operates “down-the-hole” adjacent the rock-cutting bit. High velocity exhaust air is used to flush the rock cutting up past the DTH hammer and back to the surface.
Through an intensive R&D effort LaserBond has designed, proven and is now offering a game-changing DTH hammer, targeted at hard metalliferous drilling. It lasted three times longer as totally objective and independent tests proved, reducing total drilling costs by 7.5%.
2.2 Long-life Driller Stabilisers and Reamers > read more
Drill stabilisers are a special mechanical drilling tool used in mining and oil and gas industries. They form part of the drill string to prevent unintentional side tracking and reduce vibration (rod rattle) in the drill string, thus ensuring a higher quality hole.
When they are laser clad with appropriate metallurgy they extend life by 3 – 5 times.
