UMX BIT SERIES
This innovative diamond bit technology uses advanced metallurgy and scientific research, resulting from more than 80 years of field experience. UMX diamond bits have revolutionized mineral exploration. UMX bits drill faster, last longer, and perform in a wider range of drilling conditions and formations. The extended range and versatility of the UMX diamond bits means less tripping out rods and more core in the box.
SSUMX is the original Ultramatrix bit. This impregnated bit with large synthetic diamonds exceeds the performance and reliability of traditional surface-set diamond bits. Drillers around the world have reported a significant increase in life over their traditional surface set bits, and the SSUMX is now their only choice for surface-set drilling.
07UMX is extreme durability. With a durable, resilient matrix designed for use in highly variable ground conditions ranging from surface-set to medium-hard, the 07UMX optimizes the ratio of bit life to drilling production.
09UMX is extreme penetration. Featuring advanced technology for a free-cutting matrix ideal for use in medium to the hardest ground formations, the 09UMX is the fastest penetrating bit available in the Boart LongyearTM line.
10UMX is free cutting. The latest addition to the UMX family of bits is a high performance diamond bit with the most free cutting matrix made. It quickly penetrates the hardest rock formations.
UMX™ Diamond Bits
Impregnated Bit Features
The threads are precision cut industry standard bit threads.
2. Bit Shank
The bit shank is made of high-quality steel and machined in small batches to maintain manufacturing standards.
3. Core Lifter Case Seat
The core lifter case seat supports the core lifter case when breaking core.
4. Tungsten Carbide And TSD* Pins
The pins protect the integrity of the crown.
Waterways control the fluid around the cutting edge of the bit.
6. Bit Face
Razorcut™ design is ready-to-cut right out of the box and improves tracking and balance in the hole.
Available in an extremely wide variety of formulations, the crown is the cutting edge of the bit.
Older designs had a small counterbore in the inner diameter (ID) at the start of the crown, referred to as a throat. This feature could accumulate material and accelerate ID gauge loss and has been eliminated in new designs.
Newer designs of bits have a taper on the outer diameter (OD) to smooth the transition of cuttings from the waterways up the hole, improving flushing.
