The power of diamonds


Epiroc’s Powerbit X drill features diamond-protected buttons which results in more uptime, improved safety, and lower CO2 emissions.

The diamond-protected buttons give the drill bits a substantially longer service life than those with standard buttons and helps maximise drilling time.

The Powerbit X realises the full potential of remotely and automatically controlled drilling, enabling the operator to complete a single hole with only one drill bit, significantly improving productivity.

The Powerbit X’s extremely hard surface makes it possible to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions by up to 90 per cent compared to standard drill bits.

As the tool has a long bit life, less energy and resources are consumed. Regrinding is also avoided, as the bit is recyclable once it wears out.

The longer life span of the drill also means that replacement intervals are prolonged, reducing overall risks associated with bit changes. 

The result is a consistent tool that users can rely on, with a focus on safety, efficiency, and sustainability.
