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.
