INSITE Podcast Episode 5: Why Longyear™ bits cut faster and last longer

On this episode of the INSITE podcast, host Jon Peterson interviews Senior Product Manager Chris Lambert regarding the history, engineering, and research behind Longyear™ bits — Boart Longyear's newest diamond coring bit series, and talks about how the diamond coring reference guide is useful for drillers in the field.

Chris Lambert has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and has been with Boart Longyear since 2008. He has been the company’s global product manager for coring tools, including rods, in-hole tools and diamond bits, since 2012. Prior to that, he was the engineering manager for diamond products. His 20-year engineering and product development career has included materials, hydraulics, pumps and diesel engines.

Our new host, Jon Peterson (Geo Jon for fun), works for the Products division as a Customer Service Representative. Jon graduated from the University of Utah in 2015 with his Bachelors of Science in Geology. He’s worked for Boart Longyear for the last two and a half years and interned as a geologist with an exploration company for about six months prior to coming to work for Boart Longyear. Jon has been married for a year and a half and in his free time enjoys trail running, hiking, working on his yard, spending time with family, and playing with his black lab Dexter.
