Direct Drive Drilling Systems

Sandvik Cutting Direct Drive Drilling

Sandvik Direct Drive Drilling System is far superior to conventional MF extension drilling systems for four main reasons: it’s safer, faster, easier and smarter.


  • No need to uncouple threads by hand when used on most modern drill rigs (“hands-off”)
  • No threaded connection close to the chuck and operator


  • Overall cycle times reduced by 40% compared to conventional MF Extension drilling systems


  • No uncoupling required upon installation of extra rods
  • Half the number of coupling operations


  • Modular chucks with replaceable stainless steel reinforced water seals
  • The 22 mm system incorporates a non-return valve, maintaining the water column and allowing faster
  • Recommencement of drilling
