Epiroc-minEpiroc announced the Epiroc Gray line of drill bits for mining operations seeking to boost productivity at the lowest cost per meter. The development also rebrands the Essential line of bits.

Manufactured with high-quality steel, Epiroc Gray bits help increase rock drilling efficiency and are ideal for less demanding rock conditions, the supplier said. The new bits are compatible with Epiroc’s T-thread drill string. They can be use on the Epiroc Yellow line rods, and on other manufacturers’ rods using the same common thread type.

The bits will be manufactured at four locations.
