Volgaburmash Production Facility
PDC Bits Production:
This workshop is a complete independent PDC manufacturing facility. Core bits and reamers are also manufactured in this workshop.
The PDC production facility is equipped with advanced furnaces, high-precision СNC machines, machining centers and other equipment of the world’s leading manufacturers. This ensures the high quality products Volgaburmash offers.
All materials and components used in the manufacturing drill bits undergo a thorough incoming inspection in accordance with the technical requirements. VOLGABURMASH laboratories are equipped with the most up-to-date equipment, which allows determining the chemical composition, verifying the metallurgical, physical and mechanical properties, and measuring all the required dimensions and parameters with high precision.
Volgaburmash Press shop where the legs and cones forged billets are manufactured is equipped with die-forging hammers, unique hot forging presses with 4000 tones capacity, electrical furnaces for heat treatment of forgings, and specialized machinery for removing the oxide slags.
TCI production facility:
Volgaburmash metallurgy shop is equipped with the most modern equipment to produce high strength hard alloys. The TCI drill bit contacts with the formation via its tungsten carbide cutting structure, so the good quality TCI is a key element to ensure high performance and high durability products.
Leg and cone pre-machining:
Legs’ and cones’ forgings undergo preliminary machining, where metal-cutting, welding and surfacing equipment produced by world’s leading suppliers is used. Due to this, a high quality machining is guaranteed.
Volgaburmash thermochemical workshop is equipped with unique fully automated high accuracy vacuum and chamber furnaces. Applied thermochemical technology and used equipment guarantees precise control of main parameters, achieving maximum components’ strength, and consequently increasing the reliability of the final products.
Leg and Cone Final Machining:
Following thermochemical treatment and thorough operational quality control, all components enter final machining shop. This shop is equipped with modern machining centers, milling machines, grinding machines, boring machines, hydraulic presses of the world’s leading manufacturers from USA, Italy, Switzerland and Germany.
Roller cone bits assembly:
Volgaburmash technology applies revolutionary backlash-free assembly and electron-beam welding, which ensures bit’s design parameters unchanged.
Operational and final quality control including all laboratory analyses and inspection procedures are made by professional personnel with high responsibility to ensure all the bits’ parts are made in full conformity with the designed constructions and applicable standards.</p
Design and development of new bits is carried out by Volgaburmash Specialized Design and Development Bureau, during which existence has been obtained over 300 patents and realized over 1500 innovations.
Volgaburmash design engineers work in 3D software systems Siemens NX, used by the world’s leading companies. These software packages provide three-dimensional designing and working out the technology of bit components machining with high precision. This enables us to master any features required by the customer in a very short time.
