The new Wytheville facility will stock coring equipment, sonic rods, barrels, bits, and tooling products for both surface and underground mining applications.
Established in 1890, Boart Longyear continues to be a pioneer, advancing drilling solutions that are safe, reliable, and maximise productivity. A global network of manufacturing and distribution facilities means the company can quickly deliver products to job sites around the world.
The Boart Longyear Wytheville facility will be stocked with the following products:
- NQ, NQ-2, HQ, HQ-3 PQ & PQ-3-series coring equipment
- Sonic rods, core barrels, bits, casing, and shoes
- Top hammer (percussive) tooling products for both surface and underground applications
Of growing interest to customers is the successful line of Longyear diamond coring bits which are proven to drill faster, last longer, and outperform existing bit technologies.
Additionally, innovations in coring rod technology have created a greater demand for XQ wireline coring rods. These rods last twice as long as previous rod designs due to their increased strength and self-aligning thread-start geometry — ensures mating threads engage quickly and smoothly.
