EU Project

Tools and Drilling Equipment "Glinik" LTD. implements a research and development project co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund under the Intelligent Development Operational Program 2014 -2020.
The project implemented as part of the National Center for Research and Development contest:
Operation 1.1 "B+R projects of enterprises",
Sub-operation 1.1.1 "Industrial research and development works carried out by enterprises”

Project title:
Development and verification in real conditions of new technology for the production of large-diameter roller bits and PDC type drills using incremental production methods (3D printing) realized in Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) technology

Aim of the project:
Development and verification of the possibility of using incremental production in the LMD (Laser Metal Deposition) technology in the manufacturing process of large-diameter roller cone drill bits and fixed cutter drill bits using the prototype demonstration line.

Planned effects:
  • shortening the time of production of the drill,
  • reduction of waste in the production process,
  • obtaining a high repeatability of the product (properties of covering by weld),
  • increasing the abrasion resistance and impact resistance of the large-diameter roller cone drill bit
  • increasing the durability of the PDC drill,
  • reduction in the price of large-diameter roller cone drill bits of the PDC type in relation to the competition prices, 
  • increasing the efficiency of clearing bits from rock excavation and shortening the drilling time,
Date of implementation:
years 2019 - 2022
