Atlas Copco Excore
An exploration driller’s livelihood is dependent upon the efficiency of his drilling equipment. Core in the box determines the drilling company’s revenues and the driller’s compensation. That’s why drillers are always looking for diamond drill bits with faster penetration rates and longer service life. At Atlas Copco, we have developed a new product range based on the latest in diamond drill bit technology – the Excore.
