Down-the-hole bits

Our DTH drill bits are designed to make your operations easier - whatever ground conditions. They are also equipped with our PowerCarbide® inserts, which provide superior life and enhanced drilling productivity.

The Sandvik DTH button bit designs are well known and extensively used around the world. Whatever conditions you are dealing with, our drill bits make the job easier. They are fitted with Sandvik's proprietary cemented carbide buttons, which are designed to drill further. The drill bit bodies are made from precision hardened nickel molybdenum steel, with a compound curve shape for faster and smoother cutting and easier removal of cuttings.

The bits in the new range have an optimized head length with maximized steel support for the cemented carbide buttons, deep face grooves for excellent flushing and an aggressive cutting structure.
